PCDI Ride the Ridge
Sask Cup #1
Let’s Go Racing!
PCDI Ride the Ridge Sask Cup 1 is one of only two provincial series XCO race in the greater Saskatoon area being held in 2023. We are offering a full range of categories for all ages and abilities.
Kids 12 & Under will start racing at 9:30am on the Hayleebird trail. Young kids who are new to mountain 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 starts at 11am and will race on a ~5.5km course around the park. Race distances will be as follows:
- Elite Men – 5.5 Laps
- Elite Women – 4.5 Laps
- Expert Men – 4.5 Laps
- Expert Women – 3.5 Laps
- Sport Men – 3.5 Laps
- Sport Women – 2.5 Laps
- Novice Men – 2.5 Laps
- Novice Women – 1.5 Laps
- Junior Expert Men – 3.5 Laps
- Junior Expert Women – 2.5 Laps
- Youth Sport Men – 2.5 Laps
- Youth Sport Women – 1.5 Laps
- Beginner M&W – 1.5 Laps
Races will start with a partial lap that gives the mass start a bit of time to spread out.
Race Day Sign-on opens at 8:30AM. As this is the first race of the season, please come early to make sure you have time to get your number plate!
