Once again, we're camping beside the Pacific Ocean After your race in Powell River you can relax and enjoy the beach, the ocean. While the rest of the world has been building ever more challenging gravity-inspired trails, the Powell River course, inspired by a locally grown and brewed Time warp, will keep your tires on the ground while you flow through mossy old growth forests on a new generation network of XC trails.
