The Individual Time Trial starts Saturday at 10 a.m. and courses up the North Fork to Brown Creek and back.

The Road Race starts at 10 a.m. on Sunday and races up the North Fork across the bridge to kilometre 38 and returns down the Granby side to end at the landfill site.

The course will be flagged and vehicle drivers are asked to use caution on these roads during the race.  Please come out and cheer the yellow and black.
