The 4th annual running of West Coast Racing's Cardiac Classic will once again feature events for all ages. 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. 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 John Henry Bikes and Hansen Industries, 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 with WCR for all of our 2010 events, plus Planet Foods and Schwalbe Tires.

 

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