Once again, we’re camping beside the Pacific Ocean After your race in Powell River you can relax and enjoy the beach, the ocean & the fact that you don’t have to pick up and move until the morning. While the rest of the world has been building ever more challenging gravity-inspired trails, the Powell River course, inspired by locally grown and brewed Timewarp, will keep your tires on the ground while you flow through mossy old growth forests on a new generation network of XC trails.
