The Demonstration Forest Pathway was calling on Sept 21st 2008 for 50 hardcore participants to push and bomb the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. King of the Forest 2008 was a huge success with the largest field ever. $1000 CASH and $1000 in PRIZES where awarded to top athletes. These commuters came to test their legs and lungs in the climbs and descents of Mount Seymour’s river basin. Fastest participants came in at 32 mins for 14.4 km traveled. Highest speeds where clocked at 59km/hr. Participants traveled from Portland, Seattle, Vancouver Island and Alberta to push the limits with their comrades on the North Shore, Mount Seymour.

KOTF is an event for all riding levels, styles and ages. From as young as 10 years and well over 40 these participants showed the true diversity of our audience. Safety was paramount at this event and we want to ensure good standing with the Conservation Authority for years to come. Big thanks to the volunteers and sponsors that made the event possible. Special Thanks to Rayne, Sector 9, Landyachtz, Switchbacklongboards.com and Deep Cove Outdoors. See you next year for KOTF2009.
