Scott Downhill Race Series 2024 Presented by Dakine

Race Details:

Everyone’s favourite weekly bike race series is back for 2024 – The Scott Downhill Race Series, Presented by Dakine!

Come out each week for a fun, gravity-fed downhill race followed by prizing, results, and a beverage at Legends. This year, we are changing the Thursday Night Races slightly following feedback from last summer. The Scott Thursday Night Race series will now be for Youth, Adults, and Masters (Kids aged 8-12 can join our Scott Wednesday Night Downhill Development Series) and will focus more on riding intermediate to advanced courses.

Races run weekly from June 27th to August 29th, with the exception of July 3rd & 4th, to allow our team to prepare for the Canadian National DH Championships.

Changes for this year:

  • More challenging routes
  • Open to ages 13 & up
  • For those looking for a more relaxed downhill biking environment, check out our Scott Wednesday Night Downhill Development Series (open to ages 8+). The trails are aimed at beginners—intermediates and focus more on developing your riding! You’ll still get recorded time to work on improving, but there will be no “league” element.

RACE DETAILS

TIME: Race will start at 6:30pm

REGISTRATION:
ALL registrations must be completed ONLINE before 5:45 pm on race day. Spots are limited, so register early. Races usually fill up fast! Registrations open the Friday before each race. 

ENTRY FEE:
The entry fee is $8 per race  (includes race and post-race drink sponsored by Legends Mountain Eatery).
A lift ticket or a season pass is required to access the race course.  (Lift ticket is not included in the entry fee).

RACER CHECK-IN:

All racers must check in on the day of the race to pay their $8 registration fee and collect their race plate. The dedicated check-in window will be open from 3 pm – 6 pm every Thursday. Racers not checked in by 6 pm will forfeit their spot.  

FORMAT:
The race will be on a different bike trail each week.  Racers will get one lap down the designated course and are timed via our manual Webscorer App.  The course will be open to the public all day, and racers are encouraged to take a practice run as no formal training run will occur.  Following the race, competitors can head over to Legend’s and trade in their race plate for a cold beverage to enjoy as times are tabulated.  The prize ceremony will follow in the plaza approx. 20-30 min after the last racer has crossed the finish line.  Weekly prizes are given out via draw prizes, plus competitors accumulate points at each race, and series champions in each category are crowned at the final race (please note racers must compete in a minimum of 3 races over the season to qualify for the overall standings).

RACE CATEGORIES:
Youth Male & Youth Female (age 13-17)
Adult Male & Adult Female (age 18-39)
Master Male & Mater Female (age 40+)
*Race category is determined by your age at your first race*

EVENT RELEASE AGREEMENT:

The resort event release agreement waiver must be completed prior to registering for the races. The waiver just has to be completed online once and will cover the whole series. The waiver is available online and, once complete, will give you a unique Event Release ID code that you will be required to enter at registration.
