Is this the sickest Enduro Stage ever!? Stay tuned midweek for our new video series chronicling the local communities that we visit, in partnership with Mountain Biking BC.Race Recap: Round #1 Fraser Valley // Norco Canadian Enduro Series presented by LTP Sports
There's something unique about the Fraser Valley that I just can't put my finger on. This past weekend in Chilliwack, BC, we achieved brilliance. Maybe it was the beer, the seemingly endless supply of sunshine, the hospitality of the Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association, the strength of the community, or maybe it was as simple as riding some of the best trails in the world. Regardless of the factors, I think everyone would agree that it was perfect.
The weekend started off with the Vedder Mountain XC, BC's premier XC event, and finished off on Sunday with the Enduro. The enduro featured more than 2000m of elevation and was more than 30km's long, challenging racers on 5 stages with an average race time pushing north of 30 minutes.
Our winner in the Pro Men category was Carson Eiswald, matched by Jill Kintner for the Pro Women. For full results you can click here.
This year we are switching our race recaps up a bit; we'll be posting a brief recap after the event, so stay tuned midweek for our new video series chronicling the local communities that we visit, in partnership with Mountain Biking BC.TRAIL LOVE
Our favourite thing about this weekend is the community support and love. With amazing brands, community members, and riders coming together, we were breaking records all over the place. A massive thanks to all the trail builders who showed us a good time - these guys were even out on Friday night, finalizing a few corners and revamping a couple lines for your enjoyment and in true lifer fashion, this was all post-shuttling for the day!
For those who didn't know, at every stop of the Norco Canadian Enduro Series, we donate 10% of racer registrations towards the local club's trail maintenance. For this race, racers contributed $3000+! A special thanks to Fraser Valley Mountain Bike Association!
