Small change to the maps and course release this year. You can see the full route, but stage starts and finishes are going blind. There will still be the same three stages as all past years, they will be of the same variety and flavour. No we won't be adding in any massive amounts of uphill timed climbing, but they might just be a wee bit.

Apres will be located at Steed Cycles located at: #969 Marine Dr, North Vancouver.

Reminder of our 200 rider cap. See the event page linked to this route for the full sponsor and event details.

A river runs through it! VERY VERY WET; LOTS of big puddles; some of the skinnies that straddle the puddles are a hit submerged. Rocks are all grippy though.
