2. Esplanade Epic

Canada (British Columbia)

Organizer: Golden Alpine Holidays
Place: Northern Selkirks, British Columbia

Description: This year, only 50 racers will get a chance to compete in this human powered event. Just like last year the Epic will feature 3 race categories; Gnarly, Uber and Elite. The Gnarly event will be 1000 vertical feet longer than last season promising great racing for all abilities. The Uber race course will also be expanded to include more vertical and new terrain. The Elite course is expected to be at least 6500\' vertical designed to seriously challenge the stamina of those currently on the circuit.
The first day will be spent going over safety procedures and equipment checks. After a hearty dinner and good night\'s sleep the Epic will commence @ 9AM Sunday April 17th. Immediately after the race all competitors will be flown back to a flight facility and parking staging area alongside the Trans Canada Highway 50 kilometers west of Golden BC.
Alpine Helicopter\'s in Golden is the first official sponsor of this year\'s event.

Registration fee: 250 CAD per racer
