The Venue

The star attraction of the weekend might very well be the venue – The Forks.

The Forks is a former rail yard that has been transformed into one of the city’s most cherished public spaces, hearkening back to its roots as a meeting place for early Aboriginal groups at the intersection of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Featuring an eclectic and culturally diverse marketplace, a wide variety of restaurants and food vendors, bars and entertainment opportunities, and an on-site hotel, The Forks provides Canadian cyclocross racers with a world class venue that is comparable to courses in the Belgian heartland of the sport.

The Forks also features the country’s largest urban skate park, a children’s museum, and the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
