While we didn't race the Berm-A-Grin trail, it sure is a must ride spot! Follow along as Jake Paddon chases race organizer Ted Morton Race Recap: Round #5 Crowsnest Pass, AB // Norco Canadian Enduro Series presented by LTP Sports
In 1920 the last train robbery ever in Alberta took place in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. This area in the late 1800s and early 1900s was surrounded with some of the most badass rum runners, thieves and downright fun people! While the rum runnners and thieves have left, this little town has grown into a booming outdoor paradise. Riding here is an absolute treat; there are high Alpine hike-a-bikes, flow trails that will blow your mind with natural on-off features, singletrack for days and some crazy scenic views. Throw in a bite to eat at any one of the local restaurants (Captain’s Pizza and Stones Throw are a few of our favourites) and you’ve got yourself a vacation to remember.
The weekend was highlighted by Norco Canadian Enduro Team members Evan Wall (U21) and Jacob Tooke (U21) taking the two fastest times of the day for the men. Katie Spittlehouse walked away with the fastest time for the women, taking the overall and the pro win. Daniel Shaw won the pro-men after riding most of the course blind! For the Open Women it was Clara Bown (who is U21!) who stole the top spot after an incredible race! For full results you can click here. Trail Love
The United Riders of Crowsnest have a club like no other. It’s run by a very tight-knit community that makes time for the little things like making mugs, applying for grants, helping riders find food and accommodation in their houses. This dedication to making good times on bikes really shows by the big things they’ve been able to create – new trails, including my favourite flow trail and some truly unique features littered throughout untouched hero dirt!
This event is also a part of the Rumhead Bikefest, a weekend full of camping, kids rides, beer and community goodness!
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 $2557!

Smith Thrills AND Spills - Timed Descent
At every event, we pick a stage that is full of wild thrills and tremendous spills. For this event, we switched it up and invited the whole entire race to participate in a game of foot-down. We gave $75.00 to the male and female winners who kept their feet up the longest!
These events are more than just racing; they're about having an adventure with your crew and in some cases, winning some sweet, sweet, prizing! If you're looking for results, you can find them here
