Island Cup - Vancouver Island Mountain Bike Race Series
Island Cup - Vancouver Island Mountain Bike Race Series2 days ago
Our first race of the year is rapidly approaching. The Rocky Mountain Enduro at Bear Mountain is April 1st.
We are looking for volunteers to help with course marking and timing. Message us if you can help out!
The course will be improved from last year.
Stage #1 This will be a new trail that was just approved for racing by Bear Mountain. It runs off Skirt Mountain. Wade Simmons and the Martys Crew are working hard to get the stage together for race weekend. Please do not try and ride this trail at this point as it is currently not ready. We promise it will be way better than the Canada Cup Trail that we raced last year.
Stage #2 Flow trail, same as last year, is riding very well right now.
Stage #3 Chainsaw, we will turn left at the middle of the Chainsaw trail like last year and run down the Canada Cup climbing trail. Then bomb down the fire road and past the jump park to the rhythm section on the right of the fire road. There is also a new less extreme line at the top of Chainsaw that will make things less intimidating for beginners but not as fast as taking the jumps.

There have been a few changes to the Enduro Calendar over the past couple of weeks. Notably, Forbidden Enduro has changed to May 20th and we have added Bear Mountain April 1st and Mt Tzouhalem June 24th! The series has also changed to a best 7 of 9 races. 9 Races is a lot of racing but we wanted to be inclusive to all clubs willing to host an enduro this year.
The website has been updated with all the new dates and you should expect to see more details on all of the races in early March.
