2017 marks the fifth season for the Dunbar Summer Series and this year's series will include stops at Panorama Mountain Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Big White Ski Resort, and Mount Washington Bike Park. We are proud to announce that we've added $5000 to the cash and prizes, bringing the total to $15,000 at each round - while at the same time, we won't be raising entry fees for the fourth consecutive year.

Why should you attend a Dunbar Summer Series event?

Because they are so much more than just a race on Sunday!

These events run on time, on some of the best courses BC Bike Parks has to offer and create experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. The Summer Series has Brett Tippie on the MIC all day long telling jokes and giving out buckets of swag to racers and fans alike. We have fun competitions such as whip offs, long jump, tire changing, frozen t-shirt and we've even hosted a dance-off. You can expect to find a multitude of small details that will add up to one of your best weekends of the year at the Dunbar Summer Series; free tools and tubes at the start or within the rock garden sections, ample pit space so every team can set up their tent, best-attended riders meetings, prizes for seeding, custom billeted awards, event photographers and videographers, oversized podium checks, equal elite payouts, podium champagne (or ginger-ale for Jr Ex classes). FOX Suspension will be on-hand at Panorama and Mount Washington providing suspension service and advice and Troy Lee Designs Canada will be at all four stops supporting women in the sport with a free pit space, women specific prizing, rider support, course walks and even guest coaches.

Steve Smith Memorial BC Cup Finals

September 17th - Mount Washington Bike Park and the Dunbar Summer Series are honoured to host the first ever Steve Smith Memorial BC Cup Finals. This event, set the weekend before Interbike and supported by Red Bull Canada, is going to be one of a kind for a Cycling BC, BC Cup Final. Hosted by Brett Tippie, and with many of Stevie's friends and competitors already confirmed, look for this event to be one of the best-attended races in recent memory. A portion of entry fees and 100% of all raffle tickets and #longlivechainsaw gear will go towards the Steve Smith Legacy Fund and Steve Smith Bike Park. Our great sponsors have donated everything from a full Specialized Demo 8 to #longlivechainsaw handlebars and mud guards, so be sure to keep some room open for the trip home.

Whether you are a racer, parent, or a spectator, you will have a great weekend from start to finish! Please visit my social media pages for the latest news, photos, registration details, discount codes and more.
