WHATCOM WORLD CUP

Whatcom World Cup is a series of fun, community mountain bike races held Wednesday evenings on Galbraith Mountain each spring and summer. The races are open to all, including youth. Enjoy an evening of racing followed by an after party with beverages and food!

Racers are given timing chips to zip tie to their forks and number plates to attach to their handlebars before each race - the timer starts when you cross the starting mat!

Thank you
Pacific Multi-Sports for managing the registration, timing, and coordinating races with us!

DETALLES DE ESTACIONAMIENTO

ESTACIONAMIENTO / ACCESO: Les imploramos a todos que consideren cómo llegar a estos eventos. Si vive cerca y puede montar, ¡hágalo! Si necesita conducir, comparta el automóvil o estacione en la casa de su amigo cerca de la colina. ¡NO obstruya los vecindarios y, por favor, sea muy cortés con nuestros vecinos! Escuché que alguien está construyendo un nuevo estacionamiento y ¡tú también puedes ayudar con ese esfuerzo! Solo los voluntarios y patrocinadores tendrán acceso en vehículos de montaña para cada carrera.

Perros: amas a tu perro y nosotros amamos a nuestros perros, pero deja a tus perros en casa si estás compitiendo. Si planeas ser espectador / interrumpir (¡por favor, hazlo!) Y quieres traer a tu perro, ¡debe estar 100% atado para la seguridad de Fido y de los corredores! Sin excepciones.

Please note that e-bikes are not permitted to race.

START TIME: 

Youth (18 and under) rolling start 5:00 PM, ends 5:30 PM, Adults rolling start 5:30 PM, ends 7:30 PM. Exact timing is subject to sunlight.

CHIP PICK-UP: 4 PM-6 PM at the start of the course (you do not need to wait in the chip line if you have a season pass). Chip timing and results provided by Pacific Multi-Sports. You are responsible for the cost of lost or forgotten timing chips - if you accidentally take one home please return it ASAP to the WMBC office at 770 E Holly St.

SEASON PASS: $200 for  season (includes chip). If you have your chip from 2023, passes are $180. Only 100 passes available. Includes: WWC koozie & custom plate! Season pass registration for 2024 opens on March 25th and closes April 12th.  More details here.

APRÉS: Adult beverages are $2 (cash only), all proceeds benefit WMBC. Most aprés are held on mountain and sponsored by local brewery. Beverages/food for racers first. 21+ please get your stamp during chip pick-up!

ORDER: Racers self-seed. 30 seconds between each racer; if you need more time just ask and we will give you a 'ghost rider.' No official separate start time for women, however there is a pause between youth and adults for women-identifying racers. JoyRiders generally put a group together, as well.

POINTS: Points are accumulated each race based on your time, your top 7 best race scores will contribute to your overall score. You are racing against your age group in the following categories: male, female, or non-binary.

HARDTAIL CLASS: Accumulate points for hardtail standings each time you ride a hardtail, you do not have to commit to a season of hardtail ridin​g. Points count toward the overall age group standing, no matter what you're riding.

SEGURIDAD DEL CONDUCTOR

EMS: Tendremos personal de EMS ubicado en lugares estratégicos a lo largo del curso.

Voluntarios: Necesitaremos aproximadamente 10 voluntarios por carrera (algunas carreras más que otras) y recibirán nuestro mayor agradecimiento (+ comida, comida y bebidas).

Regla de ciclista caído: si un corredor se encuentra con un corredor caído, debe detenerse y ver si el corredor caído está ileso antes de continuar. Si necesita ayuda médica inmediata, llame al 911 o espere a que llegue el próximo corredor. Luego, un corredor irá a informar a un oficial de carrera y un corredor se quedará con el corredor de plumón.
