New venue in Greater-Victoria, sponsored by Broad St Cycles! Cross on the Rock will be visiting the Jordie Lunn Bike Park for the first time. A park that was designed, in part, to host cyclocross races. Expect a 3km loop with a mix of fast hard packed surfaces, technical features, pump track, and a bit of mud. Recent rains have transformed the course. All set in a beautiful forested park with two lakes.

Parking
Parking is going to be an issue at the race. DO NOT WORRY. There is more parking 500 meters from the race site!

The main parking lot is at 2992 Irwin Road.
Continue on Irwin Rd and make a left onto Creekside Trail for the secondary parking lot.
If both lots are full, there is overflow parking on Constellation Ave, only 500m away.
There is NO PARKING on the shoulder of Irwin Rd or other nearby streets. Please use a parking lot or you will be towed, we will make the neighbours angry and we may not be invited back!

Course Hazards
While we have use of the park, there may be people unaware. Keep your head up!
Getting to the start line requires crossing the course, please be careful when the previous race is still finishing.
As always, ride within your ability.

Registration
If you have not raced this year and need to pick up your number OR if you are changing categories etc and need to come to registration. Look for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics kiosk in the main parking lot. That is where it will be located.

Team tents
Tents will most likely be near main parking lot, with an option near overflow parking. Contact roland@rabien.com for a spot.

Food
Wannawafel will be onsite selling delicious waffles.

Prizes
Shimano and Broad St Cycles will be providing sweet prizes for this event along with series sponsors: Phillips Brewery, MUC-OFF, Nutcase, 11 Speed Coffee, Jack Mar and Hotel Zed!
In addition Arc’Teryx Victoria will also be doing some prizes!

PLUS Roland has made up some Custom COTR branded pint glass and medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

PLEASE feel free to share this poster as well!!

2. Check then fix your team points.

The team competition is VERY CLOSE right now. It is time to check the points for your team!!
Most of the errors that happen in the team competition have to do with the team name that was inputted at the time of registration. If it does not match your other team mates…..then your points will not get counted.

If your team name is NOT CORRECT it is now possible to adjust them yourself because Roland is a master of coding!

Now people can go to their user page e.g. https://www.crossontherock.com/php/racer/?racername=Normon+Thibault

There is an edit link next to each result. Click the link, press the get password button. Your password gets emailed to you. Type in the team name you want and hit save. Team name updated!

You can edit team name, city and age. You can’t edit your name…..so if you have registered using different names and want the results for all your personalities to be put together send an e-mail to the link on the results page. Multiple names can ALSO effect your call up……so it is worth fixing.

Parting Shot
Nothing like a mud beard at the finish of an epic race!
