PRESS RELEASE: Dunbar Summer Series

July 18th || Fernie Alpine Resort || Canada Cup || BC Cup
July 21st || Panorama Resort || Canada Cup || BC Cup
July 25th || Kicking Horse Mountain Resort || Canadian National DH Championships

2021 marks the ninth season for the Dunbar Summer Series and this year's series will include stops in Fernie, Golden and Invermere BC and will feature two Canada Cups and the Canadian DH Nationals.

Why should you attend? Because they are so much more than just a race on Sunday!

These events run on time, on some of the best courses BC Bike Parks has to offer and create experiences and friends that will last a lifetime. The Summer Series has Brett Tippie on the mic all day long telling jokes and giving out a ton of swag to racers and fans alike. We have fun competitions such as whip offs, long jump, tire changing, rim toss and we've even hosted a pretty epic dance-off. You can expect to find a multitude of small details that will add up to one of your best weeks of the year at the Dunbar Summer Series such as:
• free tools and tubes at the start or within the rock garden sections,
• ample pit space so every team can set up their tent,
• best-attended riders’ meetings,
• prizes for seeding,
• custom billeted awards,
• event photographers and videographers,
• oversized podium checks,
• equal elite payouts,
• podium champagne (or ginger-ale for Jr Ex classes).
• Fox Racing will be at all three stops supporting women in the sport with a free pit space, women specific prizing, rider support, course walks and even guest coaches.

Shimano Kids Race: First started by Tara Llanes and Elladee Brown at the 2011 Western Open, the Shimano Kids’ Race has fast become a staple of the Dunbar Summer Series introducing our youngest fans to the addiction of racing. The kids’ race is open to all children between the ages 2 and 12. Registration is open from noon to 2:00pm on the day of the event at Guest Services and is FREE. All kids participating will receive a number plate for their bike and an award for racing from Shimano.

Dunbar MT7 Group Ride: To kick off Nationals weekend and to remember where it all began, Dunbar Cycles hosts an unorganized - organized group ride from the top of MT7 on Thursday, July 22nd and all parents, siblings and racers are welcome to join in! The plan is to meet at the lower lot by the rodeo grounds for 5:00pm sharp. From there we consolidate into as few trucks as needed and make our way to the top. Once on the summit, we will have a group photo taken and break into two groups. The first group led by some of Dunbar's fastest racers will drop into Dead Dog and make their way through one of the gnarliest sections of trail anywhere. The second group will take Red Wine down avoiding the steepest parts of Dead Dog, but still getting to ride the rest of the original Psychosis course to the bottom where ice cold pops are waiting.

Whether you are a racer, parent, or spectator, you will have a great week from start to finish!

Information, schedules, and lodging recommendations are available through registration.

Kootenay Adaptive Sport Association (KASA) is excited to announce that Adaptive MTB (aMTB) is coming to the Dunbar Summer Series this year! There will be two categories for aMTB riders: E-Assist and Non-E-Assist. This will be full-on DH racing, sharing as much of the main event racecourse as possible, while allowing for a wide range of rider skill level and equipment. Heartfelt thanks to our sponsors: High Fives Foundation, Clif Bar.

 Tried to register but didn't see any day-license/sandbagger categories on the CCN site?
  • 2 0
 Day licenses are fully available, but open categories or citizen categories were discontinued at the end of 2019. "Sport" is the new "Open" in 2021.

 A little birdie told me Fernie will not be opening Timber chair this year, huge bummer if that's the case, love seeing people shred the BC cup track!

 Yeah it being closed all last summer was not great for the season pass bike park holders. Hopefully they open it this summer. But with Covid I bet they cancel the weddings they usually have up there which is a big part of their revenue I bet they decide to not open it.

 The Timber chair will be open for the Canada Cup / BC Cup event weekend in July allowing for access to the steeps of Fernie Resort.
