PRESS RELEASE: Canadian National Enduro Series

Welcome to Round #4, Sea Otter Canada at Blue Mountain Resort, Ontario.

We are stoked to be bringing back the Norco Canadian Enduro Series presented by Live to Play Sports to the epicentre of riding in Ontario and this year it's bigger and better! This year the enduro is a part of the first ever Sea Otter Canada Bike Festival, a four day festival with from July 4th-7th. There will be something for the entire family, so make sure you get out to Blue Mountain July 4th-7th! We've been riding the trails over the last couple of days and things are looking dialed; the atmosphere is lively and the trails are looking mint!

Don't forget, this is also the only EWS Qualifier in Canada East of the Rockies, so if you're looking to qualify for the EWS in 2020 this is the stop you really need to hit!


The wall is one of the most notorious features at Blue Mountain! Pick your line and send it!

The Enduro is just one of six dirt events and three road events happening at Sea Otter Canada. While you're out for the Enduro, why not race the Air DH or the Dual Slalom? The festival will offer something for everyone to enjoy, including a large Expo area featuring more than 100 cycling brands, bike demos, activities for kids, entertainment, local craft breweries and food vendors.

Sea Otter Canada is a celebration of all things Cycling. It’s a festival for anybody who enjoys or appreciates the bike, no matter what their age or skill level.
