Riders take on Bear Mountain in Mission

The third race of the Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association is this Saturday

The Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association’s third race in the Trailblazer series happens this Saturday at Bear Mountain.

Riders from across the Pacific Northwest are coming out for the races, which are technically challenging, take place in a cheerful, friendly atmosphere, and feature prizes from Mission Springs Brewing Co.

There are kids and beginner level races, rider development lessons and categories from recreational to elite riders. The competitions are classified as enduro races, which means participants are only timed on the downhill section of the course, and can pedal or push up at their own pace.

This differs from traditional downhill races in that the course is longer and comprised of more than one segment, with expected combined times for the fastest riders being just over 20 minutes.
