NEW DATES - SEPTEMBER 14 - 15, 2013

AFD Racing is excited to launch the second year of the Gravity Cup Downhill Mountain Bike Race. Register online at www.afdracing.ca

This event will have a high energy, fun atmosphere, perfect for people who love to ride and have a good time. Keeping everyone up to speed on event details throughout the weekend will be the only person suited for the job; Mountain Bike Legend and ‘Director of Good Times’ himself, Brett Tippie!

If you are new to racing, we have something for you too! Our new Grass Roots component is a perfect way to whet your appetite for this popular sport and at the same time get a taste of what can be by watching the amazing elite class.

Each race course will be designed to be technically challenging for top level riders as well encourage novice riders and weekend warriors to participate.


Serious cash prizes as well as tons of cool swag will be awarded at both races where 1st place in the Elite Men’s category will be awarded $1000! Gravity Cup in Hinton will be awarding $3000 in cash prizes in addition to a frame from Intense Cycles! There will be even more awesome gear donated by sponsors like IXS, Dakine, Cove Bikes and Muscle Milk.
