UROC Hosts Island Cup Events

XC Race Course 2010

The Island Cup Cross Country race is Sunday April 11th.

Registration opens at 09:00am and continues on until 11:00am, race starts at high noon.  You can also pre-register at Dodge City Cycles from Tuesday, April 6th until Saturday April 10th.

Cost is $20 and a Cycling BC License is required. You can buy a $10 one day insurance, or better yet, become a UROC member for $42, which includes the UROC perk package and lets you join in all UROC hosted events.  Check out the details of the perk package on our membership page.

The course is a sweet mix of Cumberland old school and a sampling of the new progression.  The course starts in the heart of Cumberland at the #6 Mine Park and quickly makes it way up to Cumberland Classsic’s, Two & a Juice and Buggered Pig.  Following Buggered Pig a climb up to and across the Sykes bridge to the flowy, bermy goodness of Teapot, which slithers you down to the banks of Allen Lake.  After cruising alongside the Lake for a bit you will traverse across to the new classic descent which will take you all the way back to town via Crafty Butcher to Black Hole and then finishing with the cosmic bliss of Space Nugget.  You can do one, two or three laps of this wicked course!
