XC#6 Pursuit: Shuniah TT Stage 1 — Tuesday August 8

XC#6 Pursuit: Shuniah TT Stage 1 — Tuesday August 8

Happy August-long weekend!

For the month of August, we have decided to pursue an idea; XC#6 & XC#7 will be a pursuit-style stage race. XC#6 will be raced as a regular Time Trial event. XC#7, the starting order will be determined by the faster rider of XC#6. Everyone else will follow by their time gap behind the XC#6 winner. Everyone outside of a 5 minute gap will start in a mass start. Lambateurs will race with 10 second time gaps behind the preceeding riders with the winner of XC#6 starting first.

Here is everything you need to know for XC#6!

XC#6 will happen on Tuesday August 8 in Shuniah Mines. Registration starts at 6pm, with the Lambateurs and Mini-Lambs leaving the starting line in a mass start at 7pm sharp! Registration will close at 6:45pm to allow our volunteers to set the starting order for registered riders.

Note: All registered Lambateurs must participate in a course preride before the race. The preride will begin at 6:40pm.

You must be a Blacksheep member to participate in this event.

Volunteers Needed:

Our membership is growing, and so is our need for volunteers! We need people to help out with the following tasks:

Parking Attendant: 1 person to direct traffic to ensure there is enough space for people to park.

Course Marshalls: 3-4 people spread out on course to help direct riders in the right direction.

If you are able to volunteer your time or have any questions about the jobs listed, either send us a message on Facebook or send us an email at info@blacksheepmtb.com.
