10 of us from the Fraser Valley have signed up for this years race. A coed teams, a dad/son team, 4 person ladies team and 2 guys who used to race but are now old and out of shape. Long and short, we're all just going for the fun and enjoyment of riding bikes, drinking beer, camping and racing on the Island.

Does anyone know the course. Website doesn't say much. Is it similar to the first half of the BCBR stage? Do you go that high? Is it singlespeed or CX friendly? Just trying to figure out what bikes to bring.

To answer your question; yes!

I did it a few years back. People were on SS, CX, there was a beater bike there for laps on.

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

From what I remember doing it in 2010 it was not technical or steep.

If I can do it, anybody can.
I'd like to do it again, maybe next year - my trophy-mug finally broke.

Cx bike would likely be a challenge. Word is a shorter lap this year, so likely 20-25mins per lap. Course is posted on UROC FB page.
