The 60km Stomp Classic is part of the 2018 BC Premier XC Marathon Series. Riders are required to hold a BC Race licence (Provincial Race License or a UCI licence) or an out-of-province UCI license to be eligible for series points tracking and standings. Points are calculated from the results of each race in the series, ranking riders in the series standings. Series points will be cumulative for all races, with all available points contributing to the series standings.
Unlicensed riders will be able to purchase one day licences and race in their selected categories; unlicensed riders will be able to win the category on the day but will not have access to series points and are therefore not eligible to become the overall series winner.
The 20km event require a one day license or BC Race licence for insurance purpose.
Any of our kids races will require day of race registration and are FREE. The only thing required is a Kamloops Bike Riders Association Membership.
