2018 BC Provincial XC Marathon Championships
After a 17year hiatus the Stomp Classic is back. A 60km XC Mountain Bike Marathon with an epic single track section (Stomp) and technical features you will not find elsewhere. The event is located at Stake Lake just outside of Kamloops.
For 2018, our 60km Stomp Classic event is part of the 2018 BC Premier XC Marathon Series and the 2018 Provincial Championships. The event festival is on the July 7th/8th weekend and will feature 5 cycling distances. The 60km “Stomp” race concludes out of two laps of the classic loop. The 20km “Mediator” race features a single loop. And our 12km “Just GO For It” loop features a single loop. All of these events are on July 8th.
We do not forget our Juniors and Kids. Bring your children for our FREE 10km “Junior Trail” race and/or for our 1.5km “Little Bikers” event (all required is a Kamloops Bike Riders Association membership). In addition we host a skills clinic. These events are on July 7th.
