A teaser of what’s in store:
From the start line, you will roll out a short distance before beginning your climb up a steep paved road - short, steep and over before you know it. This will spit you out to the first singletrack of the day, BLT where you will descend along some fun swoopy singletrack before crossing Chapman Creek. From here it’s up a few km’s of road, where you can stretch your legs to Honey Bee and Aid 1. Then you have a bit more climbing before hitting Eldorado and Rio Grande, this descent is an all time fun rip on some of the finest trails ever made.
From the bottom we will make our way back up a series of climbs and descents towards Aid 2. Back to a logging road to catch your breath on your way to Hwy 102 where you will descend 7 plus km down to Sprockids park for more giggling. Across Langdale Creek and into the BC Ferries Terminal.
Base Camp Highlights
The trail deposits you at Langdale Ferry Terminal where you’ll find post-race refreshments, bike wash, bike transport, and showers.
After a ferry trip and a bus ride, you will arrive at the North Vancouver basecamp.
