Arduum (Mission, BC), BC cup #4 is coming up this weekend, so I went for a hike this past weekend for a preview of the track.

Check inside for a helmet cam of the trackArduum is known as the steepest and most technical track on the BC cup circuit. The track has been buffed, berms have been added, and Ewan stepped it up this year with a 25 ft. hip near the bottom of the course. Let's all cross our fingers for some rain Sunday afternoon!

The BC cup story lines heading into this race are unreal:

-Holly Feniak (Junior Women) has been topping the elite women all season, can she make it 2 BC cups in a row?

-Ewan Fafard won BC cup #3 on Ned's last weekend, Tyler Gorz won the Fluidride cup in Whistler the previous weekend, and Dan Skogland won BC cup #2 in Nanaimo 3 weeks ago. All three of these Elite men have won races on Arduum.

Who is gonna take it this year? Make your predictions in the comments below.

 Will Juniors Holly and Linden Feniak rock the pro's again with their times? Will past winners again kick ass? Is JS gonna win another one? Will home course favorite Fafard dominate? How about fast guy Jeff Bryson? Hmmmmm, this is a tech course where anything can happen. Gonna be interesting!
