The 2015 edition of the event attracted nearly 200 cyclists from all over Metro Vancouver to the two-kilometre course.
Organizers expect this year’s event to be even bigger, with over 200 riders of all levels taking on the course, which featured wood and paved sections, a stair run-up and a sand section.
The series also debuted a race at Cultus Lake in October, which attracted 170 racers.
Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, with the course open for practice starting at 10 a.m. Beginner riders hit the course at 10 a.m., while elite and masters competitors get going at 11:30 a.m. A kid’s race hits the trails at 12:45 p.m, and intermediate racers end off the event at 1:15 p.m. A podium to honour division winners is scheduled for 2:15 p.m.
Organizers said there are plans to expand the series to three races in 2017, with the inclusion of a race in Mission.
