ELITE & CYCLOSPORTIVE STAGE RACE
Less than 3 hours from Calgary, the leg-busting 3 Stage Kicking Horse Cup offers a Prologue ITT, the mass-start Kicking Horse Hill Climb and a Circuit Road Race totaling 102km of racing, while climbing 1,775m elevation. The dual sanctioned, ELITE category, is a provincial level, licensed category for racers chasing series points and looking for a more traditional race event. The well-received, low-key “Sportive” category runs the same as years past with participants grouped in 10 yr age increments, the finale culminating at the age-handicapped, Australian Pursuit Circuit Road Race; a true age-neutralized BATTLE OF THE AGES. Choose to challenge the accumulated-time overall G.C. in your respective license category (Elite Open) or by age (Sportive), or pick and choose individual events of your liking and race your comfort level.
Experienced racers will be thumped by the tough, twisting/turning, climbing/descending courses, while the Sportive category is the perfect set-up for your first intro race test-drive. Organizers are focused on a participation and draw prizing oriented casual ambiance (leave the attitude at home). Come experience hard road racing in a low-key ambiance with great draw prizes. The Kicking Horse Cup is authentic Shut-Up-Legs racing; you’ll never know if you never go!
