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.

2021 UPDATE:

All riders must preregister at CCN. REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 12:00 PM (LUNCH TIME) ON FRIDAY AUG 20. 

***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.

 

EMERGENCY RESPONSE TO ANY SITUATION IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE RIDER AND THEIR EMERGENCY CONTACT PERSON. SKI PATROL WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE FOR THE RACE RIDERS. THEY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR THE "START AT YOUR OWN TIME" RIDERS. 

 

CARRYING A CELL PHONE OR TRACKER DEVICE IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.

The routings will be mostly the same as 2020 and 2019 on Grey Mtn (aka Canyon Mtn) with minor modifications.

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

Start time for racers is 10:00am on Saturday, August 21, 2021 from the painted start line at Schwatka Lake boat launch on the Chadburn Lake Road. Start time for any timed non racers is anytime after 1100am. Your ride must finish before 5:00pm on Sunday, August 22, 2021.

Aug 20, 2021 UPDATE:
 

Hey all!

25km riders will follow orange flags till sweet dreams (gates trail) and follow the arrow. Sweet dream is flagged in blue for the remainder of your ride.

50km riders will follow orange flags and the orange arrow for all of their first 25 km loop until they come back to sweet dreams (gates trail). Then they will follow blue for the remainder

Follow the flags only especially if you don't know the names of the trails.
****Ignore the Yukon Athletics pink pins in the ground and any orange with white flags in some trees****. They aren't for us.

It will all make sense when you are out there.

Enjoy the ride.
