Kicking off on June 7th and running every Thursday evening through July 26th, the series will offer Calgary area mountain bikers a convenient and affordable opportunity to test their legs and hone their technical skills on a weekly basis.

Also available will be a free mountain bike skills clinic a half hour before the racing kicks off each Thursday night. Cost to racers will be $60 for the 8 weeks. Weekly drop-in registrations are also available for $10 per race.
