Joyride 2004 Moves to Sun Peaks

After 3 years of growth and success at Whistler, the organizers of Joyride Bikercross have announced that the event has been moved to Sun Peaks Resort north east of Kamloops. Sun Peaks has hosted numerous high level mountain bike events over the years and will be a great venue for Joyride.

Joyride will be involved with the construction of a new Bikercross course to integrate with the park and host a world-class event.

The new track will be constructed in the spring as Sun Peaks sets its sights to expand and develop the ideal mountain bike terrain. Kamloops is considered to be the birthplace of freeriding, so the move to Sun Peaks is a natural.

Joyride 2004 willtake place on July 10th. Information and updates will be posted at when available.

Racing Returns To Grouse

Cycling BC And Cove Bikes Present: Cove Bikercross @ Grouse

NORTH VANCOUVER - Cove Bikes along with Cycling BC present the Cove Bikercross at Grouse Mountain. With exclusive access to Grouse's World Cup track, starting in April, the series will run every Wednesday for the duration of the summer.

"The bikercross series is going to be an excellent way to tap-into all the young guns we have in the area and it‚s a sweet opportunity for them to really dial in their 4X skills."
-Gabe Fox, Marketing Manager, Cove Bikes

The objective is to provide coaching and racing in the heart of The North Shore-an area synonymous with world-renowned riders and terrain.

The series is part of an established track racing history here on the North Shore. The races will cater to riders of all levels so every one from kids to adults can learn to jump and ride in a safe and secure environment.

"We are trying to establish a non-competitive atmosphere where community spirit and fun take precedence."
-Gary Jackson, Cycling B.C.

Happy Birthday to.... Mark Walters who celebrated a birthday yesterday.
