We have been given the ok to run the event without citizen classes while still offering 1 day race licensing. You can choose the category appropriate for you age or race in Elite if you wish. However, you will have to pay the 1 day license fee of $5 (for U16) or $10 (for 16+) or $12 (for out of country). this you can do at registration/plate pick up. When you are registering for the race online just put 000 as your Cycling BC license #. Hope that helps.

I looked at the registration page but didn't see length of race. Does anyone know the number of laps for the XC, Masters 30-39?

thanks,
BC

Hi Ben. You have to race for about an hour and a half. Once the Commissaries get here they will tell us how many laps you do. The course length is 4.6km.
