For the third year, will the race be run clockwise or counter-clockwise or a combination of both? Hot and dry or wet and muddy, who knows. So you better come and ride to find out.
You do know though that there will be many of the features you like at Qualicum Beach. Staging and start section still the same, check! Grass and sand, check! BMX track, check! A bit of single track, check! Smooth grass sections, check! Food Trucks, Check! Same place, same great QB Civic Centre facilities.
NOTE: Absolutely NO riding on the playing fields! The marked course is the only place to be!
NOTE *2: The Town of QB is still insisting on a cardboard down and ‘No Shoes’ policy in the Civic Centre. This means the registration area as well as the washrooms. Please follow for everyone’s benefit!!!
Team tents located next to the Skateboard Park. First Come, First Served. No parking in the Team Tent area. Unload, setup then park.
Parking is available at the Civic Centre. A lot of other people use the facilities at the Civic Centre so share and share alike. NO PARKING in the Ravensong Pool parking area, that is for pool patrons only.
FYI: A great place for additional parking is at the BMX track parking lot on Park Rd. Quiet, lots of room and quick access to registration area, etc. To get there, continue down Jones St to First Ave W, turn left for 1 block then turn left again on Park Rd. Parking dead ahead.
Of Special Note
A special rate at http://sandpebbles.bc.ca/ has been setup for racers that want to come early or stay late. A great spot with lovely grounds and ocean views!
$79.95 per night
A ‘run of house’ rate which means guests choose whether they want one bed or two!
