Spring Series 2020

The long-standing Spring Classics return to the Lower Mainland on February 29, 2020. Consisting of 9 road races, the Spring Classics offer some of the hardest fought competition all year, featuring Master-friendly categories and some of our biggest, bestest courses. These races are run rain or shine, so dress accordingly and remember Rule #5. The one exception to the weather rule is snow. We do not race if there is snow on the road.
