The 4th Annual Blocks Cycle XC8 is back for another season, registration is now OPEN.
XC8 is a massive relay, where solo riders or teams of up to four people compete to ride as many laps as possible in an 8-hour time frame. Whether you’re a strong rider or a recreational rider, our categories have been designed to accommodate all levels.
The race course is located in Buffalo Pound Provincial Park north of Moose Jaw, SK. The park has been a favourite of bikers for many years, and was the site of Canada Cup XC races in 2000 and 2002. Don't be fooled by the great prairies of Saskatchewan. Racers from across Canada have found that that Saskatchewan is not flat. You will be riding in the Qu'Appelle valley, overlooking Buffalo Pound Lake. The valley was formed by post-glacier meltwater which created a channel over 2 kilometers wide and stretches 400km across Saskatchewan. It is up to 150 meters deep (492feet) and now contains many creeks, rivers, and lakes primed with great trails.
Early Bird Deadline is July 31st, 2008
$40 for solo, $30 for team members
