WHATCOM WORLD CUP
No refunds for missed race days. We are a non-profit working to build community and the time and effort it takes to process refunds or provide our race credits takes away from our work. If an unforeseen event has occurred during a race, such as a crash, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, plate number, race date, and explanation of extenuating circumstances.
EMS: We’ll have EMS staff positioned at strategic locations along the course.
Volunteers: We’ll need roughly 10 volunteers per race (some races more than others) and you will receive our utmost appreciation (+ schwag, food and bevies).
Rider Down Rule: If a racer comes across a downed racer, he/she is required to stop and see if the down racer is uninjured before continuing on. If immediate medical aid is needed, call 911 or wait for the next racer to come by. Then one racer will go to inform a race official and one racer stays with the down racer.
PARKING / ACCESS: We implore you all to consider how you get to these events. If you live close and can ride, then please do so! If you need to drive, then carpool or park at your buddy’s house close to the hill. Do NOT clog up the neighborhoods and, please, be extra courteous to our neighbors!!! The new parking lot is coming this September and you can help with that effort too! Only volunteers and sponsors will have on-mountain vehicle access for each race.
Dogs: You love your dog and we love our dogs, but please leave your dogs at home if you are racing. If you plan to spectate/ heckle (please do!) and want to bring your dog, it 100% needs to be on leash for Fido and racers’ safety! No exceptions.
