BC Provincial Championship doubles as cancer fundraiser

The 2008 edition of the BC Cancer Foundation's Westside Cycling Classic, also known as BC's Provincial Road Race Championship, will happen Sunday, June 1. It will be followed by a 36km Community Ride in the afternoon, led by former pro racer Axel Merckx.

For the first time, the event will raise money in support of cancer research in B.C. Racers can forego the usual registration fee and instead sign on to fundraise a minimum of CAN$300 or the BC Cancer Foundation. The race's prize purse is set at $15,000.
