Thursday Night Adult & Masters Summer Race Series
Everyone’s favourite weekly bike race series is back for 2023 – The Scott Downhill Race Series presented by Legends Mountain Eatery! Come out each week for a fun, gravity-fed downhill race followed by prizing, results, and a beverage at Legends Mountain Eatery.
The races will run similar to last summer with Kids & Youth (ages 8-17) racing on Wednesday Afternoons at 4:30 pm and Adults & Masters (ages 18+) racing on Thursdays at 6:30 pm.
Races run weekly from June 28th to August 31st**
**with the exception of July 12 & 13. There are no races that week to allow our team to prepare for the Canadian National DH Championships
The race will be on a different bike trail each week. Racers will get one lap down the designated course and are timed via our manual Webscorer App. The course will be open to the public all day, and racers are encouraged to take a practice run as no formal training run will occur. Following the race, competitors can head over to Legend’s and trade in their race plate for a cold beverage to enjoy as times are tabulated. The prize ceremony will follow in the plaza approx. 20-30 min after the last racer has crossed the finish line. Weekly prizes are given out via draw prizes, plus competitors accumulate points at each race, and series champions in each category are crowned at the final race (please note racers must compete in a minimum of 3 races over the season to qualify for the overall standings).
