Cove Bikercross 2005 North Vancouver BC
The gates dropped last week with Tyson Mcrea of Iron Horse Bikes sealing a season opener win at Cove Bikercross 2005.
After a long awaited hiatus it's on. Cove Bikes along with FOX RACING SHOX present Cove Bikercross 2005 at Grouse Mountain.
With exclusive access to the world cup track, the series, starting May 18, runs every Wednesday for the duration of the summer.
"The bikercross series is going to be an excellent way to tap into all the young guns we have in the area and it's a sweet opportunity for them to really dial their 4X skills," says Gabe Fox, Marketing Manager, Cove Bikes.
Providing coaching and racing in the heart of the North Shore - an area synonymous with world-renowned riders and terrain Ã‹â€ is the objective, he adds.
Bikercross is part of an established track racing history on the Shore. Races cater to all levels where kids and adults can learn to jump and ride in a safe and secure environment.
"We are trying to establish a non-competitive atmosphere where community spirit and fun take precedence," says Gary Jackson of Cycling B.C.
Learn-to-race clinics featuring some of the fastest names in the business will be held for registered riders Tuesday evenings, as well.
"Cove Bikercross is going to be a great place for all North Shore riders to come out and hone their skills with some of the best local riders around," says Thomas Vanderham, Rocky Mountain Bikes/Fox Racing.
Gates drop again this Wednesday and for the next 20 weeks with a 50 riderlimit this week to minimize the impact on the fresh track due the recentrainy weather.
