2021 BC Cup Downhill Series pb Cobotix Calendar Update

Upon notice from the organizer, Cycling BC would like to confirm that the BC Cup downhill mountain bike race at Sun Peaks scheduled on September 12, 2021, has been cancelled and will return in 2022. The organizers, with support from Cycling BC, have determined that hosting the BC Cup race at Sun Peaks this year is not going to be feasible. 

While the BC government is forging ahead with BC’s Restart Plan, now in Step 3 and scheduled to move to Step 4 on September 7th at the earliest, Cycling BC recognizes and respects that everyone, including event organizers and host establishments, are moving forward at their own pace.

Three out of the eight original 2021 BC Cup Downhill races have been cancelled including Whistler, Silverstar, and Sun Peaks. Cycling BC looks forward to seeing these races return in 2022.

Cycling BC and our event organizers will continue to move ahead with the five remaining races for the 2021 BC Cup Downhill series pb Cobotix including,

Fernie BC Cup (Canada Cup) – July 18th | Fernie Resort

Panorama BC Cup (Canada Cup) – July 21st | Panorama Resort

Big White BC Cup (Provincial Championships) – August 8th | Big White Resort

Steve Smith Memorial DH BC Cup – August 29th | Mt. Washington

Coast Gravity Park BC Cup (Final) – September 26th | Coast Gravity Park

While not part of the BC Cup series, the Canadian National Downhill Mountain Bike Championships will take place on July 25th at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

We want to thank our event organizers, sponsors, and all the riders for their unyielding commitment to ensuring that we have a safe and enjoyable season of downhill racing.
