When Brodie discontinued with its Test of Metal in 1994, Squamish Off-Road Cycling Association (SORCA) founder and president Cliff Miller and Squamish mountain biking and rock climbing guidebook author and publisher Kevin McLane met in a pub one night and drew out a proposed new Test of Metal race course on the back of a coaster.

Coast Aggregates Presents OreCrusher

Test of Metal Inc. welcomes the newest Presenting Sponsor – Coast Aggregates Ltd.

Coast Aggregates has been a part of the Sea to Sky community since 1996, and are proud supporters of many local events and initiatives. Their key areas of support are local health care, community enhancement, and trail activities.

In 2002 Coast Aggregates purchased lots DL 514 and DL 515 and since many of the mountain bike trails criss-crossed the land, the company wanted to become more involved with the local mountain bike community. They have been long-time sponsors of the Test of Metal Group of Races and this year have stepped up as Presenting Sponsor for the OreCrusher in May. They also sponsor land use for the BC Bike Race and many SORCA Toonie Rides. As well, Coast Aggregates is a sponsor of the Squamish Trails Society, an active group of local volunteers that advise on community and neighbourhood trail connections, assist with trail maintenance, and represent all types of trail users. Coast Aggregates (and Cardinal Concrete) have been very supportive through the donation of materials and equipment to assist in building the growing network of hiking and biking trails in the Squamish area.

Many thanks to Coast Aggregates for their great contributions to Squamish mountain biking  and the trails we all love to ride.
