PRESS RELEASE: Coaster50 XCM Race

The Coaster50 Cross Country Marathon mountain bike race will offer a day of amazing riding on the best mountain biking trails the Sunshine Coast has to offer. On May 5th, 2018 the Coaster50 will feature a longer and improved course near Sechelt, BC. This course will have hard climbs, exhilarating downhills and most of all, good old-fashioned XC trail riding. This course won’t be easy and rest assured, you will be challenged so save the date and register online. This is a sanctioned Cycling BC - BC Cup race and round number one in the Cycling BC XCM race series.

Prizes
Offering cash prizes for the top 3 finishers, both male and female, in the marathon race, there's also a cash prize for the first male and first female to reach the top of the 2km climb. This is open to the contestants of both races. Our new single speed category winner will be rewarded with a set of XTR M-9000 pedals too - if they can ride 50km in one gear!

Sponsor Prizes
Boreale Biking is again offering two 3-day all-inclusive packages at their beautiful lodge in the Yukon. If you haven't ridden up there yet, you're missing out on some great alpine single track. These prizes will be drawn from all registrations but you must be on site to accept your prize.

Sunshine Coast Community Forests will again be parking a fully loaded logging truck at our race base and will offer a swag package to the person guessing the value of the load.

Stick around to cheer on the racers and enjoy our barbeque lunch and a special cask from Gibsons Tapworks - Coaster Pale Ale - specially made for us mountain bikers! As well, we will draw names from our registration list for prizes donated by our local merchants during the race.
