The Tripleshot CrossFondo fun and mud continue on Sunday October 17, 2021!!!! Victoria's first mass participation off-road cycling event, appropriate for cyclocross or mountain bikes, winds through flowing pine-needle trails and hairpin turns, over hills, roots and rocks, and churns through mud, creeks and deep puddles. There may be a few hike-a-bike sections to keep it legit and 60+ property owners are opening up access to their land for race day and they have their own surprises - remember the banjo player? The old truck? The driveway up, or down, depending on our course designer's whim...
This event is a fund raiser for the Tripleshot Cycling Club Youth Program and a portion of the funds raised will support the development and maintenance of our region's amazing trail systems. So far you have helped us donate $13,000 to the South Vancouver Island Nature Trails Society and South Island Mountain Bike Society.
NEW FOR 2021: Long course only. Wave starts based on your predicted average speed for this event. Purchase one-day event licence (mandatory) directly through Cycling BC.
This year, we are running ONLY the long course which is approximately 45km. Please be aware that this distance is APPROXIMATE!! The development of the course takes months of communication with local governments, businesses and private landowners. Until the course is finalized in September 2021, we won't know the EXACT distance. And remember, on-course nutrition and mechanical support, yummy food & bevvies are included with your entry fee!
Got a lot of friends? Form a team of 4 riders! (Note: a cycling club does not qualify as a 'team'!). You MUST register all participants at the same time; simply fill out Rider #1 information and then click "add participant" for each subsequent rider. (this means you need all subsequent riders' date of birth, Cycling BC Licence # if they have one, address, phone #, emergency contact name and phone number when you register). You'll save 10% on your total entry fee.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration deadline: Friday, October 8, 2021 - a full 9 days before the event. This enables us to get the best pricing for everything we need to make this your favourite event! There will be no registration on Race Day and if you don't have a CBC licence, you will be asked to purchase a one-day licence from Cycling BC.
RACE PKG PICKUP: One day only! Saturday Oct 16 at Russ Hay's the Bicycle Shop 650 Hillside Ave from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Note: ONLY if you are riding over from the mainland on event day will you be able to pick up your race number onsite.
RE COVID-19: For 2020 we worked with the amazing staff at the Island Health (VIHA) Environmental Health Office to take the appropriate modifications due to Covid-19. We sincerely hope that the modifications that we developed for 2020 will be a distant memory in the Fall 2021. However, if need be, we will adjust our event accordingly like we did in 2020. These could include:
- Individual Time Trial format
- Volunteers will be masked and practicing physical distancing
- Hand washing stations at access points and port-a-potty sites
- Sanitized surfaces and physical distancing throughout the start/finish area and at nutrition/water stations. No-touch bottle filling.
- Distanced parking
- Musette lunch to enjoy away from the start/finish area (a ‘musette’ is a sling bag full of goodies that is given to pro riders while they’re racing)
- Participant cap TBD
The Tripleshot course is the maximum loop, taking you through public and private property.
