Summer is here in Revelstoke, BC! This weekend was a scorcher and the riders battled through hot heat, drinking more than 800 litres of water for 250 people! If you've never heard of Revelstoke or ridden here, you're seriously missing out. The recurring theme of the race was "How do I move here!?" and many racers were labelling this "The Perfect Race". We truly had a mix of almost type of trail, soil and fall-line. The trails in Revelstoke are one thing to come for, but Revelstoke's true strength is its community.
As for results, it was a very close race across all categories, with the top spots going to Max (#LeyenIntoIt) Leyen from Chilliwack, BC and Jennifer McHugh from Fernie, BC. In the junior categories, Evan Wall and Isabella Naughton took home the W.
This race was a two-day event with day one taking place at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and day two split between Frisby and Boulder Mountain. Racers faced some seriously technical trails many of the riders commented that these were the hardest stages they've ever competed in. Including a corner on day one, that had many pro level riders walking around it!
2400m of elevation gain and more than 50kms made this weekend one for the record books. Congratulations to all the racers who raced this weekend!

This event was quite special for us, we partnered up with the Revelstoke Cycling Association and asked that every racer become a member of the Revelstoke Cycling Association. Altogether we were able to raise approximately $10,400 through racer memberships!
I can't thank the RCA enough they work tirelessly to have such a diverse amount of riding, impeccable social events and some of the best dig nights around!
