18 nights of racing
6 race courses to choose
4,200 racers timed
640 unique riders
235 riders per night average, and âˆ‘.
340, or 54% of riders ages 15 and under = Future World Champions!
To put these numbers in perspective;
The nightly average is more riders than a Western Canada Cup Cross Country,
