2016 Ride Like a Girl Program - CXCC East & West

April 26, 2016 - World Enduro Canada is happy to announce their partnership with Laminacorr Racing will continue in 2016.  Once again Laminacorr will pay out cash to the winners of the Women's class at all 10 rounds of the Royal Distributing Canadian Cross Country Championship across Canada as part of the "Ride Like a Girl" contingency program. This is the only National off-road series supporting the ‘Ride like a Girl’ program.

The 2016 CXCC will consist of ten rounds across Canada. These rounds are separated to include four Western Canada events (CXCC West) with two in British Columbia and two in Alberta.  The CXCC East will include six rounds in Ontario. These events attract around 120 riders per event.

The CXCC East & West events have always had a strong turnout of Women racers.   This year there will be 2 Classes for Women at all the CXCC West events - Women's class and Expert Women.  CXCC East will continue to run the single Women's class this year but we are hoping to see this expand in future seasons and the Laminacorr program will help WEC achieve that goal.

Racers in all the women’s classes at all CXCC East and West rounds will have an opportunity to benefit from the ‘Ride like a Girl’ program, with a $200 purse to be shared between the top three finishers at each race. It is anticipated that with additional exposure and funding from the ‘Ride like a Girl’ program, more women will come out and compete.

The type of racing offered at CXCC events is family oriented and is geared towards all ages and skill levels, with a National Champion crowned in every class from Pee Wee to Pro and of course Women.
