The JunkYard Dog has been a decade favourite race on the BC Cup series and is the 4th race of the 2017 BC Cup XC season.
The JunkYard Dog is more challenging for 2017 and more fun than ever before! All of the more difficult obstacles have an easy go-around for those who don’t feel comfortable, with only a slight time penalty. Extended 1 km start and passing zone per lap.

The course has 6 km of forest single track per lap, with log roll overs, the new-for-2017 Little Ripper drop and rock garden, the popular 93 foot long Fender Bender bridge, Loop ‘n Chute rock garden, the dive rock garden. the Dog Leg bridge, Over The Creek plank, our Beer Belly bridge, Jayride A-frame, wood wall ride, drops . . . the list goes on! Fast and flowy with 3 pumptrack flow trails, Dy-no-mite Roll, Chainless and Jayride. Big smiles every lap!
2 starts, with staggered starts for categories within each start time. 0900 for Junior and Novice classes. 1130 start for 19+ to Elite.
Self feeding, but you’ll be riding by the beer garden twice on every lap so no excuses for not hydrating! (Beer Garden opens at 11, earlier if we can!)
There will be cash prizes for Elite Men and Women as per BC Cup criteria; 1st place 5x entry, 2nd 4x entry, 3rd 3x entry, 4th 2x entry, 5th 1x entry.

Swag, swag and more swag! Each registrant is automatically eligible for the swag raffle, held at each podium ceremony. You must be present to win.
Each registrant of drinking age will recieve a ticket for 1 Red Racer beer at the beer garden. But you’ll probably want an extra while you cheer your favourite racer as they ride by the beer garden twice per lap. Or perhaps they’ll need hydration.
Each registrant will recieve a ticket for 1 Papa Murphy’s Pizza slice, prepared hot on site.
Each registrant will have their photo taken on the course. Free download without restrictions. Cool!
