This work produces results that are profound, visible and unprecedented.”

Perry Stone and Douglas Hoffman both agree that by offering more racing opportunities in more locations, at reasonable costs, more riders will join the ranks of ultra-cycling and the sport will benefit from the growth in its popularity and participation.

Mr. Hoffman states: “I see Ultracycling as a sport in its infancy. Though we do have a long history, in my opinion the world hasn’t really been ready for this until now. The evolution of social media, the new ways that sporting events are recorded and communicated globally and the International fascination with extreme sports make this an ideal time for this sport to take its place on the world wide landscape. Huge numbers are interested and many are deeply studying the and challenges that people undertake to expand the limits of what is possible for human beings  I see the emergence of the Rider’s Race Series, the Tour of British Columbia, the BC Explorer and the BC Contender as a great opportunity for us to introduce the sport to  wider reaching demographics including younger riders and make ultra-cycling a sport that more and more people recognize”.
