"The weekly races are one of the reasons I decided to move to Bellingham, and I’m looking forward to next year." 2022 WWC racer

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

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!


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.

START TIME: Youth (18 and under) rolling start 5 PM, ends 5:30 PM, Adults rolling start 5:30 PM, ends 7:30 PM. Exact timing is subject to sunlight, racers earlier in the year need to start promptly and end by 7 PM. Later racers will be able to end later in the evening.

CHIP PICK-UP: 4 PM-6 PM (you do 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 to the WMBC office at 770 E Holly St. ASAP.

REGISTRATION: Register ahead of time online for each race (even if you have a season pass), each race is capped at 200 racers.

COST: $20 per race, plus one-time $5 plate (must be WMBC member). No refunds for missed race days.


SEASON PASS: $220 (includes chip) per season, only 100 passes available. Includes: WWC tech-t & custom plate! Pass registration opens Monday, March 27th through April 14th.

APRES: First beer is a part of ticket price! Each subsequent beer is $3 or two for $5 (cash only), all proceeds benefit WMBC. Most apres held on mountain and sponsored by local brewery. Beverages/food for racers first. 21+ please get your stamp during chip check-in.

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 separate start time for women though we usually leave room between youth and adults for a JoyRiders group to race together.

POINTS: Points are accumulated each race based on your time, your top 8 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.

NEW 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 your riding.

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


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.
