Registration for this years British Columbis Provincial Championship in Canada, the Westside Cycling Classic is now open at www.teamwedgewood.com. Riders can register early to take advantage of the special, early-bird pricing.
The race will again take place on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18, 2006 as part of the Point Grey Fiesta Weekend celebration and be an important fundraising event in support of the BC Cancer Foundation for the Wedgewood Cycling Team.
"This year we are anticipating riders coming to Vancouver from all parts of Canada and the Pacific Northwest," said race director Jonathan Wornell. "Being the Provincial Championships is a big draw for riders from British Columbia and, with such an exciting course and such great feedback following last years event we expect a good size field."
One rider who is looking forward to the race is Vancouver resident and Heath Net/Maxxis rider Kirk O'Bee. "Its a great course, well designed and draws a big crowd especially on the hills," O'Bee said. "I always like to ride well at home and will be riding to win."
As part of the Wedgewood Cycling Teams fundraising efforts for 2006, $5 from each riders entry fee as well as funds raised on the day will be donated to the BC Cancer Foundation.
