PRESS RELEASE: Norco Canadian Enduro Series

2018 was an awesome year for us, with more riders, gnarlier trails, and seven great events. In 2019, we're looking forward to 8 races, including two EWS Qualifiers, the EWS North American Continental Series in Revelstoke, and the Norco Canadian Enduro Championship at Panorama! Our Fraser Valley event is already sold out, and Revelstoke and Panorama are filling up fast! Please email admin@bcenduro.com if you want to get on the waitlist for Fraser Valley.

2019 is sure to be as epic as 2018 (although I'm not sure we could ask for a repeat of 2018's almost perfect weather!). Check out our full event calendar on our website.



2018 kicked off with our Fraser Valley Event. With perfect dirt and a deep field of racers, it set the tone for the season. We partnered with the Fraser Valley Mountain Bike Association to deliver a weekend of stoke. Georgia Astle and Max Leyen took the top spots.


Next up was rider favourite, Harper Mountain in Kamloops. The close-knit atmosphere at Harper is hard to beat. The riders were so stoked to be there that many of them took the opportunity to kiss the ground during the race. Jennifer McHugh took the top spot for the women, while Remi Gauvin walked away with the men's win. Big thanks to Kamloops Performance Cycling Centre for keeping these trails in top shape.


The Canadian Enduro Champs went down in Panorama. 3700 metres of descending ensured that our riders were challenged, exhausted, and stoked at the end of the day. Panorama is a dream to ride, and the local trails brought to you by the Columbia Valley Cycling Society offer further depth to the area. Remi Gauvin took the men's field, while Emily Slaco claimed the women's title.


It's hard to pick just what makes Crowsnest Pass so special - is it the amazing scenery, the incredible trails, or the dedicated mountain bike community? Likely it's the perfect combination of all three. Being able to put together an event like this in such a small town is an absolute treat. The United Riders of Crowsnest have put together a truly world-class network of trails. Paul Kerfoot and Katie Spittlehouse walked away with the men's and women's top spots.


It was appropriate that on Canada Day we raced at Camp Fortune, just a stone's throw from the nation's capital. Riders were challenged with humidity and insane heat, not to mention trails that demanded focus and quick reflexes! Franck Kirscher and Sena Odyakmaz took the big W.


Round 6 took place at Ontario's Blue Mountain. Nearly 160 riders came out and found out why Blue Mountain Bike Park is the enduro capital of the east! Lucy Schick and Milton McConville carried the day.


Our final race was at Bromont, Quebec. Maaxx events put together a challenging and insanely fun race! 4 different summits, 25 km, a 1,490 m of elevation challenged a hard-working group of sweaty riders. Connor Fearon and Genevieve Baril pulled ahead of the pack for the win.


Revelstoke is the host venue for the EWS North American Continental Series' only Canadian stop, and is sure to be rowdy! We're looking at a route that's long, sustained, and will showcase all of what Revelstoke has to offer.

Our Blue Mountain Enduro this year is part of the Sea Otter Canada festivities. Come on out for four days of biking festivities, including dual slalom, XC races, an uphill challenge, Air DH, and a huge expo. There's something for everyone, even you spandex clad roadies!

We're bringing back fan favourites, Kamloops and Crowsnest Pass. If your scene is a family reunion rather than a full-on race, these are the races for you.
