As with all WORCA events the individual participant accepts responsibility for their own abilities and safety during the event
WORCA’S EPIC ADVENTURE OF WHISTLER’S INCREDIBLE SINGLE TRACK!
Mark you calendar...July 10th...This year WORCA are putting together a challenge rather then a race...
Open to all abilities, the game will be to collect as many cards and points as possible.
The ‘route’ is around 70km, with 52 trails from Function to Wedge and back to Lost Lake. (subject to change).
You are not expected to complete the whole ‘route’ (the super human hard cores may do); ride as much as you can, it’s about getting out and having fun on bikes – it will be a big day on the bike.
Riders will collect an RFID chip at sign-in to scan at check points on route and at the finish.
Each trail has a different card you need to collect and each card has a different value, like a pack of cards. 52 cards/trails in total.
There will be plenty of cards at each pick up point (one for each participant), it’s not a race to get the card first.
The competition is to get the most points.
We encourage you to ride as a group and motivate each other but you will be scored individually.
You’ll need to be self sufficient on the ride, but we encourage you to help each other out if in need; it’s not a race to the finish.
There will be aid stations on course to top up on water and limited supplies - including the Liv/Giant Lounge!
Tickets include an after-party with BBQ and Beverages at Passiv Haus.
To include under 16 years we are doing a Family Team category. Under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult for the whole day. You are welcome to have as many riders as you like in your Family Team, each entry for the adults and under 16 years in the team is $25/per person. You will score one set of points between the Family Team.
