Experience the huge variety of trails around South-eastern BC, including big mountain, forest floor, gnarly rootsy up-and-down and everything in between. Challenge yourself alongside like-minded enduro race fans with unlimited high fives and beers at the end of the day. 

This is no alps, no Trans Provence, no super high elevation riding - but on the side of pure traditional famous BC singletrack of loam, forest, roots, and alpine, and everything in between. BC has its own truly unique style and this race will showcase a little bit of everything.
