Obsession: Bikes presents the Return of the Ripper
in conjunction with MECâ€™s 2011 Bikefest
June 3, 4 & 5, 2011 will be the â€˜weekend of the bikeâ€™ as we gather at Inter River Park in North Vancouver and celebrate the world we live inâ€”the world of mountain biking. Obsession: Bikes is, as the name implies, obsessed with bikes, and we will be bringing it all together for an action packed weekend of racing and biking that the whole family can enjoy.
This year we are putting together a series of events that are more like the Rippers of a few years ago. Three â€˜ridesâ€™ that celebrate the trail, bikes and friends that make up the great sport that we love. At the end of the weekend a Ripper King, Queen and Team will be crownedâ€”determined by the best results in all 3 events. Plus, the King and Queen will have to compete on the same bike in each eventâ€”including the same wheels. The Ripper Team will be the team that performs best in the Specialized Super D.
The North Shore BikeFest weekend is nearly upon us. Thanks for registering online. So far our numbersÂ do allow for some on-site day-of registration, however, tell your friends to register online and save $20 per race!
