Coming up this August 16th is another great enduro event in British Columbia. Norco presents the Burney Ridge Enduro at Silver Star Bike Park. The Burney Ridge Enduro is centered around a simple and fun concept. Silver Star is known its fast and flowy trails for all ages and abilities and this race is no different. If you have been interested in enduro racing but haven't had a go at it yet, this is the race for you, think of it as "Fun-Duro". The three stage race will include some of Silver Stars new XC trails and some of your favorite bike park trails and will feature two climbing sections and one lift assisted ride, the route for the race will be released on August 14.
According to Devin Knopf, Silver Star's Events Manager, enduro races take many forms all over the world. "Some are crazy long Super-D races, like the Downieville Classic or the Megavalanche. Others, like races in the Enduro World Series, include multiple timed downhill stages that are held over a single day (Like the Burney Ridge Enduro), or over multiple days and are linked by non-timed climbs. “They’re basically pedally downhill races where fitness is just as important as skill, but for this Silver Star race it's more about fun.” Knopf says. "Bring the whole family!"
In keeping with the simple theme, the event will have Men's and Womens categories in Jr (13-17), Open and Masters (30+). Register before August 1st and receive a free event shirt. You can register today with CCN

Silver Star’s bike park features more than 300 dirt jumps and 600 berms. Trails range from green (easy) to double-black (expert), from gently winding through wildflower meadows to adrenalin pumping runs packed with berms, table tops and features that challenge the hardcore rider. A four-bike carrier lift, Comet Express, allows access to 18 trails and 1,600 vertical feet of riding in under seven minutes. It runs daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., while the Summit chair runs from noon until 4 p.m. on Fridays to Sundays
