DH Race #2 Results

Conditions were mint, the rain held off and Loggin’ Leftovers was the scene for the second race in RCA DH Toonie Series presented by FLOWT Bikes & Skis.  We had another great turnout with 34 riders showing up to put their cornering skills and powerline mashability to the test.  Kate Devine put down the fastest time of the day for the women crossing the line in a mere 3:49.93.   Stephanie Noel was edged out by just over 3 seconds and with her strong second place finish, she has jumped into the lead in the overall series standings for 2016 and is now the one being chased.  On the men’s side it was Dominique Unterberger laying one down for the second week in a row […]

Bringing Back The Mount Mac Challenge!

The RCA is pleased to announce that we are bringing back the Mt Mac Challenge on June 25th, 2016. The original event was a XC race hosted by the RCA from 1996 to 2003. Initially it was hosted at MacPherson and later at Mt Mackenzie. A lot has changed in the Revelstoke mountain biking landscape since the first race in 1996.

Highlights of that racecourse included the Ridgewalk trail and whole lot of double track. These days we’ve got 50km of purpose built single track available to choose from at MacPherson (and more being built every year). We invite you to check out some of the highlights on the new Mt Mac Challenge course – we know you’ll love the trails!

This season the Mt Mac Challenge will be a “double toonie”. Entry will […]

DH Race #1 Results & DH Race #2 Logging Leftovers

On a scorcher day with primo trail conditions, the TNT Chainless race went in the books.  This was the first race in the RCA DH Toonie Series presented by FLOWT Bikes & Skis and we had a great turnout with over 30 riders showing up to put in a time.  The women’s race was won by Amanda MacIntosh who rocketed down the course finishing with a hot time of 5:22.62.  On the men’s side of things it was Dominique Unterberger who surprised only himself by taking the victory with a steamy time 4:20.03.  Congratulations to all the riders who came out to ride and a massive thanks goes to all our volunteers who did an amazing job out there.  Thanks as well to our prize […]
