Shuttles for Arduum

Shuttles are a very important part of the entire experience of racing when we don't have any access to a chairlift. (Does anyone have one lying around we could use?)

We are working super hard to get the shuttles system rolling like a well greased set of gears, so that everyone gets adequate laps in on the race course.

More information on that later.


The Race Track...

Well folks, Arduum is Arduum is Arduum.

There is no getting around the fact that the track is steep and technical. In fact, it is probably the steepest of the BC Cup Series.

That being said, there are going to be a few minor changes/tweaks to the course to allow more people to have fun at the race.

More on that later, but until then, above is the course map, the "Big Brother is watching you" sky photograph and the elevation chart.

Enjoy and hope to see you race day.


The Date is Announced....

Well after several hours pouring over dates for the 2010 installment of Arduum, Cycling BC has finally approved our date for the event.

Arduum will take place on the 20th of June, 2010.

There will be practice shuttles taking place on the Saturday beforehand.

Mark your calenders and see you there.
