Passo Apex Hill Climb

Passo Apex Hill Climb Race (Saturday, July 8th | Apex Mountain)

WHEN: Saturday, July 8th, 2017 (9 a.m. start)

WHERE: Apex Mountain (Green Mountain Rd. & Apex Mountain Rd.)

The inaugural Passo Apex Hill Climb Race…presented by Velofix is a timed, 12 km hill climb up Penticton’s Apex Mountain on Saturday, July 8th, as part of Granfondo Weekend. This new, separate race event – happening a day before Sunday’s big ride – challenges the strength and determination of the intermediate and elite cyclists.

Canadian Cycling Magazine recently named Apex Mountain the 2nd best climb in Canada – though we humbly endorse it for top spot! The 12.2 km climb up Apex features 861 m of elevation gain, with an average gradient of 7.9% – with some pitches up to 20% –
making it a climb worthy of the Tour de France

REGISTRATION FOR THE PASSO APEX HILL CLIMB RACE IS NOW OPEN & AVAILABLE ONLY TO REGISTERED PGAMO RIDERS

Prizes will be awarded to the Passo Apex’s top climbers, and all participants will receive special gifts from Apex Mountain & Tree Brewing upon conquering the Passo Apex!

COST: $50 + tax (in addition to PGAMO registration fees)
