2 knee race series

2 knee race series

Body: 

A fun weekly race/ride series for all mountain bikers.

Mark your calendars and start NOT training (those caught training are disqualified...kidding...but training is highly frowned upon). Go hard and compete for the bragging rights or just come and enjoy the fun with like minded bikers. These are typically more enduro style and the emphasis is on having fun. Prizes and titles up for grabs!

Participants must be a member of the Fernie Mountain Bike Club, anyone can join - only $25 to join for the year, $50 for families! Sign up online beforehand! Participants under 19 years of age must be in attendance at the first race or make arrangements to sign a minor waiver in advance.

$2 entry fee per race goes towards beer for all participants - join your fellow riders for a post-race beverage & nachos at the Pub at Park Place Lodge and see the king and queen of the valley crowned after the last race.

Tuesday Race Schedule, meet at trailhead by 6.45pm, race starts at 7pm:

July 4: Red Sonja (sponsored by Give'r and Fernie Brewing Company)
July 11: Slunt (sponsored by Straightline)
July 18: Kid's Stuff/Splitting Bears (sponsored by The Guide's Hut)

BC Trans Enduro

BC Trans Enduro

Body: 

Coming through Fernie on July 10th!

This will be a 6 day enduro event, where climbs are untimed and descents are timed.  Expect a range of 4-6hrs on your bike per day with several timed sections throughout each day.  Times will be added together over the span of the 6 days to get your overall result at the end of the event.  Progressive daily times will be announced during dinner and briefing each evening. This is NOT an XC race ;)
