Revelstoke! How good!? We’re unbelievably stoked to be back here racing and the trails have not disappointed! 7 stages, 60km, and over 2500m of climbing under the scorching sun awaited this weekend's racers as we kicked off round 3 of the Norco Canadian Enduro Series Presented By Leatt.

This weekend's race included the classic Revy race laps - Frisby Ridge and Boondocker - as well as a couple of trails not normally raced like Bike Club and Cash Advance. They were certainly a talking point and would keep everyone on their toes, but we were stoked to hear these fresh additions were many riders' favorite stages.

Tori Wood maintained her stronghold of the Pro Women's top step, taking the overall win by just over a minute. In the Pro Men's, Nick McLeod went back and forth with David Joneau all day but eventually took the win by just over 20 seconds. Chloe McKenzie finished atop the U21 Women's podium with a time that would have seen her finish second in the Pro Women, while in the U21 Men, Colby Pringle won all but one stage to claim the title with a time that also would have put him in second place in the Pro category. The kids are coming!

The series now moves to Cumberland and Mt Washington for round #4 and the halfway point of this year's series. With another big weekend in-store for riders, we cannot wait to get things underway.

A huge thank you goes out to the Revelstoke Cycling Association for their support this weekend. They do an incredible job not only maintaining the trails but also petitioning for new trails. Legends! We also want to say a massive thanks to Revelstoke Mountain Resort for putting on one of the best rider meals so far. Killer meals, live music, and plenty of drinks. Cheers guys! But our biggest thank you has to go out to the racers and volunteers! This series wouldn’t be what it is without you all, whether you are out there tackling the race or helping to make sure everything runs smoothly, thank you!

Roll out. Let's get this show on the road.

The climb up Frisby Ridge was the most grueling of the weekend. With little shade, this was made even tougher in the heat.

There was no way we could visit Revy and not race Frisby Ridge!

 Most certainly the best selection of trails I've ever raced. Hats off to the organizers for that and thanks to the builders in Revy for letting us race these trails.

 Better coverage than the EWS, and that isn't including the horrific music the EWS uses (p.s. Germany called and wants their 1980's mixed tape back).
