Sun Peaks Resort is stoked to be hosting the 2016 Canadian National Downhill Championships this summer for the third year in a row in our legendary Bike Park! Building on the success of our 2012 BC Cup, 2013 Canada Cup, and last two summer's Canadian Championships, our infamous DH track will be receiving some extra love this spring to prepare for an influx of some of Canada's best riders. This race will have citizen classes, so everyone can get in on the action.

On-site registration will cost $10 more per entry (no exceptions). Please register online! Elite and Junior Expert categories must register a minimum of 48 hours before the event (Friday deadline). Late registration for Elite and Junior Expert will result in a $50 fine.
