* Riders in these categories MUST upgrade upon meeting upgrade criteria, which are listed in the upgrade policy, here. Half of the riders’ currents points will be transferred when this occurs.
Riders in any category subject to upgrade may claim an early upgrade if they can produce verifiable results which shows a race time that would have put them in the top 25% of the field “Expert” (U17 or Junior) or “Elite” (Senior Men/Senior Women) category in the same race.
Upgrade forms must be submitted no later than 2 weeks prior to race time. Upgrade requests must be submitted through the online form, here.
The BC Cup Downhill Series is a great tool in preparing our best provincial athletes to compete on the national and international stage. Riders must complete 3 out of 9 races to be eligible for an overall ranking. 7 out of 9 races will count towards total series points, therefore, riders who compete in all 9 races will be able to “drop” their 2 lowest results.
Seeding runs will be offered at each event and will determine start order for your race run, but will not count towards series overall points. (Seeding runs for Elite, Junior Expert and U17 Expert categories only.)
For all categories, each rider must complete at least two training runs prior to race start on Sunday. Riders who fail to complete two training runs may not be allowed to start at their established race time and receive a DNS.
Each rider must ensure they have read and understood the Mountain Bike UCI rules listed here.
