CXCC Release

For Immediate Release – June 12, 2013


    This past Sunday the Royal Distributing Canadian Cross Country Championship kicked off the 2013 season in the beautiful coastal mountains outside of Chilliwack, BC with round one of the CXCC West.  The Greater Vancouver Motorcycle club has a long, storied history of running events in this area and this year marked the 65th running of their famous Piston Run.  The course was over 30 km long and featured tight mountain trails and some very steep elevation changes.  It was a course that demanded respect from the competitors. 


    This year was a record turn out for the Piston Run with over 155 entries.  Part of this can be attributed to the 35 riders from Alberta and the 5 American riders who made the trip. 


    In the Pro Class KTM’s Bobby Prochau let his competitors he was once again the man to beat in 2013.  After getting off to a good start he opened up a small lead that stretched to just over five minutes after four hours of racing.  Honda’s Jason Schrage worked his way into second after getting around KTM’s Geoff Nelson who managed to hold off the CGRT Husaberg riders Ben Rego and Shane Cuthbertson.  The top three riders finished their third lap just before the three hour time limit and had to go out for a fourth lap which kept them racing at full speed for just under four hours.  Talk about stamina. 


    At the podium presentation there were a number of prize give aways courtesy of National Sponsors – Royal Distributing, Parts Canada, Emperor Racing, Red Bull, and Mongoose Racing (Rekluse).  In addition to these sponsors World Enduro Canada and the event organizers would like to thank the Premium level sponsors – Honda Canada, Yamaha Canada and KTM for all their support in making this National Cross Country event a success. 


    Full results and championship point’s standings will be available on our site shortly.
