Series Pass


How it works:

  • Riders will pay $40 upfront to race the all 8 races.
  • There are only 150 series passes to be purchased. First come, first served.
  • All racers must be 2017 WORCA members – ***New for 2017! - WORCA has moved to online waivers.  All Phat Weds racers MUST buy their membership online BEFORE the first day of racing and not on the day: www.worca.com. This should reduce line-ups and also benefit minors whose parents cannot be in Whistler in person.
  • You will NOT get a race plate for the season There will be a designated line at the weekly registration for season pass holders
  • You will then be given a plate each night.
  • If you do NOT pick up your plate before 5:45pm then those plates not assigned will go into the mix for the rest of the field.
  • At the end of the race, you must hand in your plate to get your beer ticket.
  • Only racers who race will be entered into the draw for prizes – even if you have paid for the season.
  • If you don't race – there is no refund.
  • You can pick up a friend's plate – only if they are a season's pass holder.
  • Someone else cannot use your plate to race. They must register themselves in the drop in line. This is to ensure that they have a WORCA membership as well as keeping the results accurate.
  • These races are a series. You do not need to race all of the them but if you do then we keep track of points using the UCI point system. At the end of the 8 races we will crown series champions in each category. We will be taking the top 7 of 8 races for each competitor.

Where can I get one?

  • Passes are on sale May 1, 2017: Online, at Guest Relations or Res Centre.

  • You must register in person. Sorry no picking up plates for friends.
