Cinco Races

Our bi-weekly races run on Wednesday nights from April through September. At $5 per rider ($2 under age 14), you’ll be timed by Spruce Race Timing, and then head to an after-party for great eats, beverages and plenty of good times sponsored by our fantastic local businesses.

SORCA Cinco Rides are open to SORCA members only, or for a $20 one day ride fee for non-members. Registration starts at 6pm, and the cowbell starts the race at 6:30pm. Riders must be 12 years of age and up.

If you’d like to volunteer to help out with rides, please contact us. We always need trail marshals, flaggers and time keepers.

XC Events:

The original race series. A mass start to finish race on intermediate level trails. These races will get your heart pumping, while you jockey for position. Don’t worry it’s not that serious, unless you bring your spandex.

Spruce Race Timing runs the clock and provides live results. Each week, points go towards your overall XC and KOM/QOM standings. This is a great option to get in shape for longer XC events like the Sp’akw’us, or use it as a motivator to get fit with your friends.

Trail Series:

Our trail series races are similar to 1 stage enduro style races. These races are a shorter course, usually less than 10 minutes of racing time. Don’t let that fool you though, your heart will be pumping, your hands will be sweaty and your legs will be on fire by the time you cross the finish line. The trails chosen are intermediate to advanced levels and pre-rides are encouraged to dial in your line.

Spruce Race Timing runs the clock and provides live results. Each week, points go towards your overall Trail Series and KOM/QOM standing. If you’ve never ridden an enduro race before, this is a great opportunity to see what the hype is about. Alternatively, if you regularly sport the fanny pack and goggles anyway, these races are a great chance to train for the season.

Uphill Challenge:

These are gonna hurt! A timed mass start to finish race on almost entirely uphill course. Expect easy terrain on a 30-90 minute course. It won’t be easy, but at least you know everyone else is suffering with you!

Spruce Race Timing runs the clock and provides live results. Each week, points go towards your overall Uphill Challenge and KOM/QOM standings.

King & Queen of the Mountain (KOM / QOM)

The overall standing, with points totaled from each discipline. This is both a test of your overall riding skill, and your ability to make as many events as possible. At the end of the year we will crown the King & Queen on the Mountains in Squamish!
