Course description for the XC race:

The 2015 XC race will start in the Englishman River Provincial Park. Riders can park in the main parking area and have the use of Park facilities.

There will be a rolling start from the registration/parking area with actual racing commencing on the gravel road near the Park maintenance compound.

The race course is very similar to the 2014 race with a 500 m double track, gravel road leading to the single track climb on Walrus and Brian’s Worm trails to the power lines. From here the courses follows everyone’s favorite trail, the fast and flowy lines of Jughead. New this year is some more mileage by following a turn onto Burnt Ridge, a small portion of Coquihalla leading to a connector leading to Barf Bag. From here the course intersects Just Groovy that will lead to Betty’s Bridge, then a gravel road spin to LocoMotion onto another short gravel road sprint to the finish and lap point.

One lap is about 9.5 km.
Beginner: 1 lap
Intermediate: 2 laps
Expert: 3 laps
