CADENCE CYCLE – Twister Race & GEAR SWAP – January 28th

Hello Dog Lovers,

Are you still in the mood?
Our next event is coming soon. Thank you for sponsoring this race, Dean and Cadence Cycle!!

CADENCE CYCLE Twister Race & GEAR SWAP – Sunday, January 28th, 2018

SPECIAL!! Gear Swap –  Everyone has dog-related gear, we don’t need anymore and stuff we are looking for. So bring it to the event, bring a table or display it on your truck, all rather informal! Trade it or sell it!!!

Where: Lorne Mt trails, registration and start in the big parking lot behind the Mt Lorne Community Hall

Most likely we will use the 10-mile loop on the Mary Lake trail this time to keep it interesting. For our Recreational class, we will find a shorter version.

Categories:
10 miles:  6-8 dogs Sleds, 2-4 dogs Skijoring
Recreational 5 km: 2-4 dogs Sled, 1-2 dogs Skijoring, Fat Bikes, Kick sleds, Runners etc welcome!
Kids Dash – free and just for fun!! DPSAY will help with a dog and a sled, if you don’t have any. CHILDREN MUST WEAR A HELMET!!

About the Categories:
The longer distance (10 miles) category is the competitive race, where timing and placing applies. This category is recommended for experienced mushers/skiers and experienced dogs.

The shorter distance (3-5 miles) is the RECREATIONAL category. We will focus on a non-competitive approach. The focus is on trying a new sport with your dog (any breed!!), practicing, meeting new dog lovers and having fun without worrying about competitive dogs and mushers/skiers. (We keep track of times for your personal interest.)

Registration
10 am for the 10 mile category
Musher meeting at 10:30 am, Race Start shortly after

This is NEW: REGISTER at 12:00 pm, when you participate in the Recreational Class and Kids Dash.
Meeting at 12:15 pm, Race Start shortly after

Of course recreational participants are always welcome to come out earlier to socialize, watch, volunteer and cheer!!!

Costs:
$10 – for DPSAY Members, $15 –  for Non-Members per race
(Individual membership fees (annual): $15 – Adults, $10 – 18 years and under)

Temperature Cut-off: -30 Degrees Celsius (at the time of race start)

Looks like we might get some fresh snow until then, wouldn’t that be great!

UPDATE!!! – CARBON HILL Race Day on Sunday, January 14th, 2018

THANK YOU Robert and Katherine for going out today and grooming the trails for the Carbon Hill Race Day!

30 + miles – Alligator Lake loop – groomed beautifully!

6 mile loop – like very year!


We have a another crew going out on Saturday for more grooming and marking of the trails!
OUR VOLUNTEERS ROCK!!!

IMPORTANT!!

  • Any participant under the age of 16 will be asked to wear a helmet.
  • This is a community event! If you have a dog (pet and/or sled dog!), who does not behave well around other dogs and passing teams, please leave the dog at home. We have had incidents in the past, and we would like to avoid them and keep it fun for everyone! Thanks for your understanding!
  • Temperature Cut-Off is -30 at the time of the start… which shouldn’t be an issue on Sunday, if the forecast is correct.
