Hi everyone, I'm new to this board as well as the BC area and have left my solid group of riding and racing buddies back in the states. I would like to start riding and training with locals here in the area who are semi serious about racing. Don't get me wrong, I don't plan on making DH racing my career, but my goals for the year are to bump up to Pro class after a few solid places in expert so I'm no slouch. I live in Coquitlam so I have been mainly riding Eagle and have made a couple trips to the Woodlot and Burke, but I'm interested in finding some more DH race type trails in the area and I don't mind driving a bit.
I have been compiling my race schedule for this year and was curious who else is interested in racing any of these. Carpooling is always a great way to save gas money and meet people who like to race as well as ride.
I guess I'm just curious to see who is serious about racing here and wants to train and who is interested in carpooling to these events.
My current schedule is looking like this:
27-28, NWC #1, Port Angeles, WA.
15-18, Sea Otter Classic, Monterey, CA
24-25, NWC #2, Port Angeles, WA
1-2, Race the Ranch DH, Kamloops, BC
8-9, Sunshine Coast DH or Unicorn 5000, Kamloops (Which is a better coarse?)
22-23, OBB DH, Nanaimo, BC
29-30, Island DH, Hammerfest
5-6, North Shore DH, North Van, BC
12-13, NWC #3, Port Angeles, WA
19-20 Arduum DH, Mission ,BC
26-27, Fluidride Cup, Mt Hood, OR
3-4, Bear Mountain DH, Mission, BC
10-11, Fluidride Cup, Mt Hood, OR
24-25, Gear Jammer DH, Squammish or NWC #4, Port Angeles (Gear Jammer is shown on a Friday, if that's the case I will go to PA)
31-1, Mt Washington DH, Mt Washington, BC
7-8/ 14-15 Crankworx
28-30, Golden State cup, TBA (if it's close enough) or BC Cup Finals at Kicking Horse
25-26, Fluidride Cup Finals, Mt Hood, OR
