We’ll be running this event Canadian style, keeping it relaxed and about the fun. What does that mean? Riders will be able to race against whomever they want, each rider gets two laps and your time will rank you against your age category.

XC SHORT COURSE
Presented by:

XCC is the newest addition to the cross-country discipline, often referred to as the “20-Minute Sufferfest”, this event is a 1-1.5km long course that sweeps through the lower mountain and village. It’s a mass-start, action-packed, spectator friendly event and has a whole lot of sprinting. The XCC Elite event is meant for competitive racers only and for good reason, this course is gruelling. For riders looking for more of a multi-lap, relay race, check out the XC Short Track 3hr.

AIR DOWNHILL
Presented by:

$95.00

Call it what you want, but we’re staking a claim that this event should just be titled ‘FUN’. It doesn’t really matter what your time is in this race, it’s more about how hard you ‘send it’! Racing down Blue Mountain Resort’s premier jump trail will certainly have its eyebrow-raising moments, what’s not to love!? Jumps, downhill and speed, this is an event for the whole squad. Open to any age category, be sure you meet the equipment requirements.
