ROYALTY OF

THE CANYON

2020 Event Details:

It’s time again for the Royalty of the Canyon (ROC) Unofficial Yukon Mountain Biking Championships for 2020 (A Special Covid-19 Edition) 

As you may have suspected, we are going to do something a little different due to COVID-19

ROC 2020 will be a self timed event. Strava, or the like, is highly encouraged. I will spool up the results at the end of the day. 

Royalty of the Canyon / Yukon Mountain Bike Championships
 

Join us on Grey Mountain for the annual Yukon Mountain Bike Championship - Royalty of the Canyon (Formerly called King of the Canyon)!

What is Royalty of the Canyon?
It is a friendly Yukon mountain bike race on Grey Mountain!
Everyone is welcome to either participate in a 25km ride (approx 2h-3h) or for the most tenacious a 50km ride (approx 3h-5h) depending on your hardcore-ness).

We are looking for participants ready to finish, or not!
Be part of the party and the event. It will be a great day to bike, as much as you can.

2020 UPDATE:

All riders must preregister at CCN. REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 12:00 PM (LUNCH TIME) ON FRIDAY AUG 21. 

***THERE WILL BE NO SUPPORT FOR RIDERS (WHICH MEANS, NO AID STATION, NO SNACKS, NO WATER, NO CHEERING...AND UNFORTUNATELY, NO COW BELL!!!).

 

EACH RIDER IS EXPECTED TO BE FULLY PREPARED FOR THE DISTANCES AND SKILL REQUIREMENT THEY HAVE SIGNED UP FOR.

The routings will be the same as 2019 on Grey Mtn (aka Canyon Mtn) with minor modifications. I will create Strava segments of the 25km and the 50km loops and send out textual details of the course once flagged on the Thursday before the race.

The course will be preflagged and preswept for hazards with most whippers removed for maximum visual experience
