The Atomic Seymour Challenge 2016!! Mount Seymour
On June 26th we dig deep into Vancouver’s cycling history to 1966 when men stopped cutting their hair and woman stopped shaving their pits. It’s a whole different spandex clad Strava scene out there now but, when the race is done, the strongest riders will be hoisting the same trophies that were hoisted by Olympians many years before. It’s the 50th anniversary, the 36th running, the comeback, the most fun anyone can have climbing the the toughest mountain in Vancouver. This race will be an epic restart to a signature event.
