Cyclocross takes place in St. Malo

This little sweetheart was one of twenty children that participated in the Kids Race that was part of the first annual Cyclocross in St. Malo.

   The Friends of St. Malo Provincial Park and the Economic Development Office in the RM of de Salaberry are pleased with the response to the community’s first Cyclocross.      

   On October 16, the 2010 St. Malo Cyclocross Race took place at the St. Malo Provincial Park.

   Approximately ninety people participated in the Cyclocross which consisted of four races including a Kids Race, a Citizen and Corporate Ride, the B Race (Novice) and the A Race (professional). Twenty children participated in the Kids Race.

   Lesley Gaudry, co‐organizer of the event is pleased with the response to the event.

   “The event was more successful that we expected – we were anticipating 30-40 registrants,” Gaudry says. “Cyclocross racing is becoming tremendously popular in the province of Manitoba.”

    This event, a first in St Malo, drew participants from Altona, Winnipeg, St. Pierre Jolys, St. Malo, and Portage la Prairie.

   “We had a lot of community support to put on this race” Gaudry added. “We hope to plan this event again for next year.”

   Community support for the event came from the Economic Development Office, Rural Municipality of De Salaberry, Friends of St. Malo Park, the Rat River Recreation Commission, le CDEM, Rivers West Corporation, Manitoba Conservation, and Olympia Bike Club.
