Rules. More event info.
The Crowsnest Pass 100 is an individual mountain bike race. The racecourse utilizes some public backcountry/fire roads. The roads are unpaved and very lightly used (you could go the whole day without seeing a vehicle), however, it is the racers responsibility to follow traffic laws while on course.
The use of drop bars or aero bars is prohibited. Flat bar style mountain bikes are allowed, this is a mountain bike race.
Racers will be lightly supported during the event, so should be prepared for self-sufficiency. While there will be two aid stations, racers should come prepared to handle hydration, nutrition, mechanical issues and general first-aid on their own. It’s a long course with long distances between aid stations, and it travels into the backcountry!
