October 19/11 10:08 am - Pumpkin Cross Looms, Record Numbers Expected

Posted by Editoress on 10/19/11

BC Cup Cyclo-Cross Race to Haunt Maple Ridge this Sunday

With Pumpkin Cross presented by Local Ride Bike Shop looming, it’s time to put the final touches on your costumes, register, and get pumped up for a day of spooky fun on your bike. Local Ride Bike Shop can help with all of the above just in time for Sunday’s big event.

“We’re very excited about the Pumpkin Cross brain trust putting together another spectacularly spooky yet fiendishly fun labyrinth of race tape that will take riders over chilling obstacles and through creepy places,” said race organizer Barry Lyster. “This is our fifth year putting on the race and it just keeps on getting bigger, it’s scaaary!”




Pumpkin Cross will also be experiencing some star power on Sunday with current World XC Mountain Bike Champion and Olympian Catharine Pendrel of Kamloops set to contest the elite women’s competition. Pumpkin Cross has a history of celebrity sightings, including Austin Powers, the Count, the Incredible Hulk, Britney Spears, the Ninja Turtles, Peewee Herman, and singlespeed Cyclo-Cross World Champ Drew Mckenzie.

To get you pumped, Local Ride Bike Shop’s good friend, Dean Wilkes, has compiled footage and photos from Pumpkin Cross 2010 into a sweet race teaser video. Check it out here

Save yourself some time on race morning and avoid the $10 late fee by pre-registering online before 6:00 pm on Friday, October 21st, click here

If you miss the pre-registration deadline, you can download the Pumpkin Cross registration form (PDF) here, print and fill it out at home, and present your $35 cash (plus $10 day-of license, if applicable) to the lovely (or ghoulish) volunteers at registration on Sunday. Exact change is greatly appreciated.
