Salmon Arm council has given its unanimous permission for the Shuswap Cycling Club to hold its third annual Shuswap Cross Cyclocross Race in Klahani Park. The event, which is one of eight races in the Interior Cyclocross Series, will take place Oct. 18. Coun. Chad Eliason championed the event, stating where there have been issues in the past, organizers have worked to mitigate them. During one event tire marks were left on a ball diamond but that has since been remedied. Mayor Nancy Cooper noted such events contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
