Pre-Test approaches quickly

Those looking to cram before the Test of Metal might consider tackling on June 9 the Pre-Test XC race, which benefits the Don Ross Secondary School Outdoor Leadership program while also providing winners a chance to win an entry into the Test of Metal.

"We're proud to be able to help a valuable curricular program at Don Ross that helps kids learn many valuable leadership qualities that will benefit them for the rest of their lives," said Pre-Test race director Jim Douglas. "It's a program that reflects the value of life-long recreational pursuit."

Since getting an entry into the Test of Metal has become so competitive, organizers are offering each adult category winner an entry into next weekend's Test of Metal. Second place in the adult categories will earn a spot in the 2007 Gearjammer and third place gets an entry to the new Grass Roots Mountain Bike Association (GRMBA) championship to be held in Squamish this September.

The classic-style multi-lap event XC event takes place in Brackendale at 11AM. For more information, visit
