Meh. I would have made the trip over for Monster mile. after Arduum was cancelled I was wanting a good rough technical track. I still have a point to prove on MM. still yet to have a clean race run after 5 tries

Oh well next year I guess.

Agreed, such a good race and awesome course. I couldn't stop riding it, and with the high speed lift you could do 5-6 laps an hour. So glad I showed up. :)

Sad to see one of the biking worlds most influential website's racers say something like this; especially since I'm no longer able to race with my career moving me to Alberta. Even if you are in the senior category…

:agree:

Despite all the doubters the track was better than ever. Mt Wash retains the crown for most fun track on the BC Cup!

Thanks to Tippie for the weekend's entertainment and speeding through the podiums so we could all get to the ferry line! My favourite moment was "which ever kid can catch me gets this" as he ditched the microphone and ran off - priceless! :fruit: :lol:

I was wondering how long it would take for me to get flamed for this. Im not associated with that website anymore, Ive had to chose my races wisely this year. Unfortunately I didn't have enough reason to spend money I don't have.

The course was a fun one to watch (I showed up for a couple hours of entertainment). I saw a couple of guys go through the MHC section faster than I thought humanly possible.:damn:

Results?

Is it me, or is Cycling BC really dropping the ball on posting results this year? Often organisers get the word out, which is great, but it strikes me that Cycling BC should be providing a database of all the results as the season progresses…

Was it Sam that got hurt? I saw he DNF'd and there was a long course hold during the juniors. Please tell me he's ok.
