Crud 2 Mud Downhill Mountain Bike Race This Weekend on Whistler Mountain

Downhill Mountain Bike

The 2013 season up on Whistler Blackcomb was amazing as always, why not celebrate the changing of the seasons by entering the Crud 2 Mud downhill race presented by Budlight this Sunday, May 26. The event is a transitional race where individuals or teams of two start at the top of Whistler Mountain, ski down to the snowline, then hop onto their mountain bike to finish the race down to the village.

Single participants do both sections of the race as quick as possible, where the team format allows one person to do the skiing or snowboarding, while the 2nd person gets tagged to complete the remaining mountain biking section of the race. There are multiple categories for participants of the Crud 2 Mud event, ranging in age categories and formats. Pre-registration is mandatory, with a deadline of Saturday, May 25th and 2PM. Entry to the event is $55 for singles and $80 for teams of two, however this does not include the Whistler mountain lift ticket ($31 for adults $28 for youths/seniors).

Registration can be completed at Whistler Blackcomb guest reservations or 1-800-766-0449. The race has a recommended skill level for both skiing/snowboarding and mountain biking as intermediate to expert. All Crud 2 Mud registered athletes are required to attend the mandatory meeting at the Garibaldi Lift Company (GLC) on Saturday, May 25 at 6PM to discuss the format of the race as well as the final course route.

After the race, everyone is welcome to attend the celebrations and awards at the GLC at the base of Whistler mountain, in the village.
