What is the XC8?
The XC8 is an 8 hour endurance mountain bike race. Participants compete against each other in Teams of 2, Teams of 4, or Solo. The event transcends both recreational and serious athletes. There are racers who want to win and push themselves to the limit, and there are riders who just want to enjoy the day and finish the race. It is the ONLY event of its kind in Saskatchewan.
What is the Offroad Syndicate (ORS)
The ORS is a volunteer-based club and provincial-level events organization. Our goal is to provide everyone with the opportunity to participate in active and healthy cycling events. We operate like a non-profit organization. We strive not to make a profit, but to grow our events and the sport by providing participants the absolute best experience during our events. All the financial support and product samples we receive from sponsoring companies go directly into the event and supporing the sport of cycling in Saskatchewan.
Why Sponsor the Offroad Syndicate and XC8?
The XC8 is one of the best biking events in Western Canada. Since the inception of the XC8 event in 2005, attendance has grown by 73%. This is due to our "athletes first" strategy that is growing this event each season. In return for your support, your company will receive the benefits of the various sponsorship levels the ORS has to offer (see below under "Sponsorship Levels"). Your company will greatly benefit from sponsorship of our events because we take care of our sponsors needs and take the partnership seriously. Sponsorship is a tw-way street to us -- we want to make our event better, and you want promotion for your business.
In the end, your sponsorship ensures that youth will have the chance to participate in cycling events, which builds character, positive attitudes, personal fitness and most of all, self-esteem. Your support ensures that our community has a resource where we can all have fun, and enjoy cycling. Sponsorship of the ORS is an investment in our community and all of Saskatchewan.
