Here are the results from Saturday Seeding and what to expect today.
We will have plenty of copies for you at the event but if you really like to use your own toner, print the appropriate stuff and bring it with.’
Also useful for minors traveling without their guardians.
See the following document for everything you need to know about the upcoming NW Cup/Pro GRT. The schedule MIGHT have some small tweaks, but this is the current prediction.
Dry Hill has never been into better shape going into a race season, ironically, thanks to the heavy snowpack we received. Let’s get this party started!
As most of you know, both of the Pro GRT’s hosted by NW Cup are UCI sanctioned events. So what does that mean?
The main difference between these and standard NW Cups is that anyone racing the Elite (Pro) category, must have an International license. This can be issued by the UCI or USA Cycling but it must be an International license. I said that twice, because it’s important. For those of you who have raced the Pro GRTs over the past few years, you know what I’m talking about.
This is an especially significant opportunity this year as there are two ginormous UCI races happening on North American soil this year; the World Championships in Mt. Sainte Anne, and a World Cup at Snowshoe, WV. The Pro GRT being a UCI event gives you the opportunity to earn points toward qualifying for these events.
If you already have an Int’l license, keep cleaning your bike. If you don’t, your best bet would be to contact USA Cycling and upgrade your license with them. If you don’t get to it, it “should” be possible at the event.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation and we’re looking forward to kicking off the 2019 NW Cup.
It’s official, pre-registration for the 2019 NW Cup is live. Looking forward to a few NW Cup Family Reunions this year.
Stevens Pass Bike Park once again plays host to the finals for the 2018 NW Cup. It’s been a whirlwind tour of the greater PNW with 8 rounds over 4 states. In 2018, many of us got to meet a new park with Round 7 in Whitefish, MT. Will 2019 introduce yet another loca….
Let’s focus on task at hand. About 5 months of racing comes down to one 3-ish minute race, and there are several categories that hang in the balance. Bikes and bodies are battered and bruised, and a good/bad day could shuffle the deck. Oh the stress!
This weekend we will honor a NW Cup champion, Declan Ervin. The PNW lost an inspirational competitor earlier this year, and 2018 will be the genesis of the Declan Ervin Hard Charger Award. This will be presented to the rider that is following in some very big footsteps, and we’re excited to see who can fill them.

See you all soon…one more time for 2018!
