Welcome to the Fernie Mountain Bike Club

Welcome to the Fernie Mountain Bike Club (FMBC) website! The FMBC is a member-based, non-profit organization who’s mandate is to build, maintain and ride the Fernie trails. 

Collaborating with other groups such as the Fernie Trails Alliance, the FMBC encourages recreational and competitive cycling for all ages and abilities and promotes responsible mountain biking practices and land use. The FMBC is an integral part of advocating for access of trails, management and maintenance of recreational mountain bike trail use.

  • Kootenay Rockies Enduro -Fernie

    Kootenay Rockies Enduro -Fernie

    Date: 
    Sunday, July 12, 2015 - 07:00

    The Kootenay Rockies Enduro Series provides the opportunity for avid mountain bike riders and racers to travel to some the best riding locations around BC/AB with friends while still getting to race amongst one another.

    Our goal is to cater to every style of rider throughout the series: this means stages that include fast flowy single track, steep technical terrain, some stages that have more climbing and some stages that are pure descents. It will be about finding that fine line that showcases the true 'all mountain' rider!

    Expect each race to have 2-5hrs of total riding time with 2-5 timed stages within the course that are anywhere from 1 min 30 seconds to 30mins in length.

    A total of $1000 cash prizing for each race. Series winners receive a free race entry for 2016.

    Detailed course descriptions will be kept secret until a few days before the race. More specific details of event location and exact times will be released soon.

    Categories:

    • Pro/Elite Men (prize money category - the fastest category - you don't need a pro/elite license to enter this category)
    • Open Men (any age)
    • Open Women (any age)
    • Master Men (40+)
    • Junior Men (U19 - and if there are sufficient entries we will open up a U17)
