The Stoked to Get Spanked cross-country race returns to Mount Macpherson on Sunday, June 22.

This year there is a slight change to the 17-kilometre course, eliminating the big eye-popping climb to the top of Ridge Walk. Organizers have also added a timed descent on Berm Donor.

It’ll be a battle of baggy shorts versus lycra in some categories.

The course, designed by Wade Viznaugh, is fantastic and full of single track.

The elite category will see some high profile athletes race two laps, while the sport category is only one lap and is designed to be fun for any rider.

Kids and adults from run bike age and upwards can sign up at Skookum Cycle downtown or by calling 250-814-0090.
