It's time #tbay for XC #7 and finally we are getting some hot August nights! Brace yourself for some old school Shuniah fun and put on your technical riding shorts because we are back in Shuniah for some badass racing!

**Please note our registration/race times have been bumped up 30minutes sooner than our last XC race. This is to beat our faster setting sun this time of year.***

Petrie's Cycle and Sport is our race sponsor for this Wednesday's race so lets support our local bike shops as they donate to us their time, money and prizes!!

Extremely important this year to be able to race you must be a member of the club by signing up online by 11:59pm the night before the race. This allows our registration team and time keepers to have an up to date member list and timing info. Also required is a printed and signed waiver to be brought to your first race..
