On May 1, Canyon will host the Pure Cycling VIP party from 3:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and on May 2, the Lost Abbey hosted BWR Expo runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday, 5 a.m. until the end of the event’s ceremonies after dark. Riders must pick-up their entry packets during expo hours Saturday, where they are invited to enjoy the massive fête hosted by the Lost Abbey (VIP ticket holders may pick up their packets at the VIP event at Canyon Friday). Race day events kick-off at the Lost Abbey at 5 a.m. on Sunday, May 3, with catered breakfast for participants, replete with HTFU portions of authentically prepared Belgian waffles. Pain and suffering will commence at 7 a.m. featuring four waves predicated on riders’ USAC categories. The expo will remain open on Sunday throughout the duration of the event until the beers, jeers and awards are distributed for all the day’s heroic efforts.

Returning sponsors include Canyon, 100% Eyewear, Castelli, Monster Hydro, IRC Tires, Lost Abbey, Wend Wax Works, Wahoo Fitness, ENVE, Blast Radius Coffee, Science in Sport, VeloFix, the Law Office of Seth Davidson, Source Endurance and GoPro.

This year we will have the King of the Canyon competition again part to the event with the other categories—General Classification, King/Queen of the Mountain, King/Queen of the Dirt, King/Queen of the Sprints, Hardman/Hardwoman and the most spirited kUDOs award in honor of Udo Heinz. There will also be a regular team competition for the Waffle, where there will be three categories: male, female and co-ed. Teams of four or more will compete with the top-four riders of each team combining their times for one finishing time.

Registration will open 12:00 p.m. PST November 15, 2019 and is expected to reach its limit quickly. Initial entry fee is $175 for the full Waffle Ride, $150 for the 74-mile Wafer and $125 for the 36-mile Wanna Ride, but prices go up December 1 if spots are still available! Proceeds from registration fees will help support the San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA), a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and improving sustainable trail access for biking in San Diego County.
