Part of the BC Cup XC series

brought to you by






The 3rd annual running of West Coast Racing's Cardiac Classic will once again feature events for all ages with a series of courses specifically tailored to different ages and skill levels from beginners and pint-sized riders all the way up to seasoned competitors. Burnaby Mountain’s set of historic trails, combined with the fantastically swoopy Gear Jammer and Upper Cut, will provide thrills and challenges for every participant. The return to the "Old Course" for 2010 puts the cardiac back in Cardiac! Come to see the sensational flowing singletrack descents that Burnaby Mountain has to offer, plus a healthy dose of the technical trail features that are the hallmark of riding in BC.

Along with presenting sponsors Hansen Industries and North Shore Bike Shop, a host of other fine supporters of the local cycling community have helped to make this event possible including Race Face and Ryders Eyewear who have generously partnered for WCR for all of our 2009 events, plus Cycles Lambert, Schwalbe Tires and Bike Atac.


Thanks also to Burnaby Mountain Biking Association (BMBA), City of Burnaby Parks , Recreation and Cultural Services, and Cycling BC for their support of the Cardiac Classic.
