Race Number Pick up.

You can pre-pick up your race number Saturday night from 5:00-7:00 PM at Pro City Racing

Course Description

The course will be the same but totally different because we are running it backwards (Year #13….as you know for bike racers if they get a #13 they wear it upside-down. This is the COTR equivalent). Some corners will change a bit but the layout will be the same. Taking advantage of Topaz park’s varied terrain including grass, wood chip trails, rocks, and more grass. The 2018 race course is fast, fun, and flowing with a mix of high/low speed riding, wide open power sections, technical cornering, and fluid long radius turns over varied surfaces. Race your file tread tires, (Updated note…..yeah…check the weather….you might NOT want file treads) bring your horsepower and your cornering skills.

Venue:

Topaz Park is located at the corner of Finlayson Street and Blanshard Street in Victoria. Parking is available on the north end of the park off of Finlayson Street or on the East side of the park by taking Spruce St off of Quadra Street. Additional parking is available at Mayfair Centre and SJ Willis School, a short walking distance to the park.

Please be courteous to other park users during race day and keep off the sports fields. The park is still open to the public so please be respectful.

Team tents:

Please send scott@trekbikesvictoria.com if you would like a reserved parking spot and area for your team tent. We will be setting up tents similar to last year, a bit closer to the parking area off Spruce St. Your spot will only be reserved until 9:30 am.
