Cycling BC revealed its full BC Cup DH calendar this week. The seven-event series includes three Canada Cup rounds and runs from late June to mid-September.
Globally renowned mountain bike destination Whistler Blackcomb will host the opening round on June 24-26 on its bike park trails. From there, the series heads to SilverStar, outside Vernon,B.C. for the first combined Canada Cup and BC Cup round.
BC Cup continues further into the province’s interior to join up with the Dunbar Summer Series, celebrating its 10th season. Fernie nad Panorama will be combined BC Cup and Canada Cup events. Kicking Horse then hosts Canadian DH national championships, though that will be a non-series event and not count towards BC Cup overall standings.
