Race the Ridge Welcomes New Sponsor as Event Draws Near

Only Three Days Left to Register for Maple Ridge Cycling Race

April 18, 2012 (Maple Ridge, BC) – The 10th Annual Race the Ridge cycling stage race presented by Local Ride Bike Shop, April 28-29, is pleased to announce a new sponsorship agreement with Power2max power meter systems.

“I’m very excited to have Power2max on board for Race the Ridge,” said race organizer Barry Lyster. “The support from Power2max will be put directly towards the racers in the form of cash primes and stage winnings.”

Power2max will also be on site with more information about the product and a demo bike. As an extra bonus, every Race the Ridge participant will receive a 10% discount off the purchase of a Power2max system.

The final registration deadline of 6:00 pm, Saturday, April 21, for Race the Ridge is quickly approaching. Lyster urges riders to register soon, as fields are capped and there will be no day-of registration available. Register online at

“Our goal is to make Race the Ridge a high quality event for all the participants. We have three excellent race courses and are looking forward to what will be the best Race the Ridge in its 10-year history,” said Lyster.
