Mount Washington Hosts BC Cup Provincial Championships
Article Date: August-10-2011
Following the triumphant return of the Bearclaw Invitational last week, Mount Washington is pumped and ready to keep the bike season flowing with a brand new course for their BC Cup race this weekend.
Mount Washington Alpine Resort and Cycling BC partner to bring the BC Cup provincial race series annually to Vancouver Island. The race series incorporates both downhill and cross-country disciplines of mountain biking and is held at various locations throughout the province.
Mount Washington's event begins Saturday, August 13th with the endurance-testing cross-country and ends on Sunday, August 14th with the speed and thrills of the downhill. To bring all of the riders home, the call for this weekend's races will be performed by freeride luminary and Director of Good Times, Brett Tippie.
Even though some of BC's best XC and DH riders will be in attendance, you don't need to be a pro to experience the BC Cup at the mountain this weekend.
Categories for the BC Cup are wide-ranging, where competitors race from as early as 10 years of age in the U15 category to over 50 years of age in the venerable Masters category.
