We can’t wait to hit the trails and have some fun with hundreds of like-minded women on July 21st.
Read on to learn more about this year’s course, pre-ride clinic and all the amazing prizing that’s up for grabs.
HOYH Pre-Ride Clinic
To get riders ready for the race, Ride Hub in collaboration with Norco Bicycles organized an official Hot On Your Heels Pre-Ride Clinic for Saturday, June 23rd. Over the course of this free clinic, riders will get helpful advice from certified mountain bike coaches and will have the chance to pre-ride two of the five stages from the HOYH Enduro race.
HOYH Course Details
The official 2018 HOYH course has been announced, with a few minor changes to the race course and time stages still to come. Held on the renowned trails of Squamish, the course brings back a few old classics, a few new stages and new this year, a timed (non-mandatory) climbing stage. Find the detailed course information here or on Trailforks.com.
“Each year the course brings a few changes and a few new challenges. The trails are chosen with the intent of pushing some of you out of your comfort zones but still keeping it super fun for the more advanced riders. The format of the ‘race’ is enduro, but forget all of that nonsense you may have heard about cut off times and fanny packs. ‘Enduro’ is really just some new fancy word for timed segments, giving you ample time to stop and catch your breath along the way, chit chat with the handsome volunteers, and cheer on your fellow riders.” – Melissa Sheridan, HOYH organizer
Norco Bicycles, in partnership with local Squamish bike shop Republic Bicycles, has been a supporter of Hot On Your Heels since day one. We’re proud to support the event once more and are thrilled to give away a Norco Sight C2 Women’s along with plenty of other amazing prizes from our parent company Live to Play Sports. Each rider will receive one free raffle ticket but if you really want to increase your chances, plenty of extra raffle tickets will be available for purchase with all proceeds going to “Go Girls! Healthy Bodies Healthy Minds”, a division of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Hot On Your Heels is so much more than just a race. Get ready for the highlight of your summer!
