We are expecting the same bike course for the 2019 race.
The hardest sections include "blue" trails such as Rollercoaster and Lumberjacks. It is strongly recommended to pre-ride the course to familiarize yourself with the trails and difficulty level, especially if you are less experienced on Squamish trails. A "blue" trail in Squamish might differ in technical difficulty from blue trails in other locations.
The 12.5KM Sport and 25KM Championship Course follow the same trails, with the Championship Course adding a modified second loop. Both courses have a mix of double track/ access road and flowy single track trails that allow racers to pass and have fun on the faster downhill sections
