Registration is open for the 47km cross country point to point fifth annual GearJammer race on July 15 in Squamish, British Columbia. Participation this year is limited to 500 racers. No licenses are required as the race is sanctioned by the Grass Roots Mountain Bike Association of BC, a society formed to encourage and enable fun, grass roots oriented mountain biking clubs and events.
The race course covers some of the best singletrack in Squamish. The course features 70% singletrack. Winning times are around the 2.5 hour mark, but many take an average of four to five hours to finish.
For the second year, the GearJammer is part of the "Hell of a Series" which also includes the Brodie Rat Race in Roberts Creek (May 5) and the Test of Metal in Squamish (June 16).
