In powerful performances Olympic mountain biker Geoff Kabush (Maxxis) and Wendy Simms (Kona) took the Elite Men's and Women's titles after each broke clear of the field in their respective races on both days. Alberta's Pepper Harlton (Juventus/Alberta) kept it close, pushing Simms all the way to the line to take home silver. But Simms led every lap, scoring back-to-back victories.

In the men's race Edmonton's Tim Heemskerk (United Cycle) showed he was up to the challenge staying with newly crowned National Champion Geoff Kabush for most of the race before Kabush pulled away in the last part and Heemskerk took a well-earned second place.

David Larson (Team Alberta/Juventus) gave the hometown crowd a special treat by winning the Under-23 men's title. In a display of teamwork, Mike Bidniak and Larson rode away from the field by the halfway mark, dropping Andrew Thomas (Team Saskatchewan), Kyle Fry (Cycle Solutions) and Cody Canning (ERTC/Revolution).

The first day (National Championships) day began overcast and very cold, below zero and with heavy frost on the ground for the morning Masters categories. The weather didn't hinder a great turnout on day one of the event. Sian Barraclough (Velocity) and Nancy Burden (Juventus) getting things started off going 1 -2 in the women's masters event. Peter Mogg (The Hub/Devinci Cyclocross Team) and Ed Campbell (D'Ornellas) would take the Master A and C categories in dominating fashion. Hometown rider Ed Sean Barr (Pedalhead Roadworks) took home the Gold in the Master B category – his first in Masters B but 4th as a Masters rider.

In the Junior men's race a group of five riders pulled away early from the rest of the pack with Evan Guthrie (BC) taking long pulls at the front and leading on the run ups before eventually taking the win but it was Kris Dahl (Team Alberta/CMC/Bow Cycle), a first year Junior, who turned heads on the day by taking home the sliver in this hotly contested event.

The second day brought along the Jim Horner GP and despite cold conditions racers were again treated to a great course, competitive fields and lots of fun.
