3. PLEASE read the technical guide (see below).

4. The price is $65 per rider for adults; U19 and under are $20.

5. VOLUNTEERS are needed and very much appreciated.  If you have a DEVO racing it would be great if you were to volunteer. (See sign up below-there are many different shifts to accommodate race schedules).

ROLLER COASTER CRIT
JULY 26, 2022

Thanks to everyone who raced the Roller Coaster! What a wild ride it was...see you next year!

THE GOODS:

1. Participants must preregister (registration will close on Monday, July 25 at 11:59PM). Late entry requests will not be accepted.

2. The course is much more technical than Glenlyon or Richmond. All riders must have racing experience or LTR training.

3. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the technical guide (see below).

4. The price is $40 per rider. This event is very expensive for us to host and we barely break even (to be totally honest...we may even lose money). If money is tight see a solution in #6 below. NOTE: This is NOT part of the WTNC Season Pass.

5. U19 and younger race for free.

6. VOLUNTEERS are needed and very much appreciated. If you sign up for a volunteer shift you can race for free. If you have a child racing it would be great if you were to volunteer. (see sign up below-there are many different shifts to accommodate race schedules).

7. Only racers are allowed in the Playland area (and that is during their race). There are loads of great spots to spectate outside of the Playland area. Note: if you are a photographer please email ev-ed@escapevelocity.bc.ca for access.

8. You are gonna wanna book yourself out of work early on this day...see the schedule below!
