You’ve been asking for it and we’ve obliged. The Cardiac Classic is back in 2014 and this year it will play host to the 2014 Provincial XC mtb championships on behalf of Cycling BC. You don’t have to be a lycra clad racer type to participate. Our event will have opportunities for everyone to have fun and challenge themselves. The Cardiac Classic is cohosted by Mighty Riders and West Coast Cycling with support from Cycling BC due to it being a provincial championship.

Special Offer for Unlicensed riders: In an effort to showcase the sport of XC mtb the organizers, WCC and Mighty Riders have decided to cover the cost of single day licenses. We believe this will entice riders from across the lower mainland and province to come out and race and perhaps lead them to consider the purchase of a cycling BC race license. What does this mean? Riders without a license will have the $10/ single day license covered by the organizers
