PCDI Crossin' the Ridge Sask Cup 1&2

Let’s Go Racing!

PCDI Crossin’ the Ridge Sask Cup 1&2 is first double weekend provincial series Cyclocross races being held in 2021, and we are offering a full range of categories for all ages and abilities.

We have a kids race for kids 12 & under scheduled for Sunday October 3 starting at 9:45am on the Hayleebird trail.  Young kids who are new to biking should sign up for the lower loop race as it flatter and and better suited for kids that are just starting out.  Kids that are a bit older can go in the race using the full loop where they’ll get to go up and down the hill a bit on a nice flowing loop.  Both races will last about 15 minutes.  Afterwards, stick around for a bit to watch the big race too!

The main event will be held on both Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3, 2021.  Please see below for each day’s race schedule.  Competitors will face a 2.5km course around the park.  Race durations will be as follows:

  • Cat 1,2,3&4 Men – 50 Minutes
  • Cat 1,2&3 Women – 50 Minutes
  • Cat 5&6 Men – 30 Minutes
  • Cat 4,5&6 Women – 30 Minutes

Durations are approximate and final race length will be decided by race officials.
