The night’s event is en­ti­tled, “Christ­mas Cram­per Rac­ing.” Sounds like holly, jolly fun. 14-16 The track cy­cling World Cup has its fi­nal Euro­pean stop of the sea­son in Lon­don. Rid­ers take to the boards at the Lee Val­ley Velopark.

20 For the fourth year in a row, Cy­cling Canada is run­ning its Christ­mas Cross Camp. The pro­gram pro­vides sup­port to elite and de­vel­op­ing ath­letes in Eu­rope. Look for Canucks at the fol­low­ing events: Na­mur World Cup (Dec. 23), Zolder World Cup (Dec. 26), DVV Tro­fee Azen­cross (Dec. 28), Su­per­pres­tige Diegem (Dec. 30) and Grand Prix Sven Nys (Jan. 1).
