This is a fun racing event for all abilities, with both recreational and age division categories. Your entry fee includes video and an after-party with prizes.

The next race on the calendar is a Kokanee Valley Race Series super G on Thursday, March 11 on the Upper Dave Murray. Helmets are required for this event.

You can register at any of the above locations, or until 10 a.m. on race day at the Dave Murray Video Centre at the top of the Garbanzo Express.
