2020 Marks a big year for the Island Cup Series. We have seen significant growth in both Enduro and XC participation over the past 3 years and we have made a few tweaks to improve the series.
#1 – New Timing for Enduro!
We are stepping up our game significantly and working with Spruce Race timing to offer the latest in timing technology. Gone are the “Wrist Band Chips” and the “Tag in/out” days. Moving forward racers will have number plates with timing chips in the plates. When you are racing you will enter the start zone, and blast past the bottom timer at full speed and let the timing system do all of the work for you. You can also keep the plate at the end of the race.
#2 – Pricing increase
With the fancy new timing system comes a cost. Race entry fees for Enduro events will be $65 Adult, $45 U19, $25 U12 in the Youth category. XC Race fees will be $40 Adult and $20 U19.
#3 – New Category.
We are adding a Masters 40+ Category for Enduro events. The Masters will race the same course as the Experts. If you are over 40 but want to race in Beginner/Intermediate/or Elite you still can, just don’t choose Expert.
#4 – New Sponsor.
We are exited to have the Support of Sea Soil! The owners are out at the races and love them so much they decided to help out by sponsoring the series. Thanks Sea Soil!
#5 – New Merch.
Show your Island Cup Series love by picking up a pair of custom Endur socks or a Flat brim cap. Keep an eye on our facebook page, or your email inbox for details on how to be one of the first to wear the Island Cup Series branded goods.
#6 – New system for “One Day Licenses”.
This is a change from Cycling BC but it will be IMPORTANT for many of you. For 2020 riders that wish to purchase a One Event License will do so online before the event. Another note is that pricing has gone up for these One Day licenses, and there will be a limit of how many you can purchase throughout the year. This is because Cycling BC is paying a lot more for each rider this year, and to encourage riders to purchase a Provincial Ride License. More details will be announced as they are finalized from Cycling BC.
