Fernie Dunbar Summer Series Canada Cup / BC Cup Downhill Mountain Bike Race

 

 

 

 

Fernie Alpine Resort is proud to partner with SE Racing, Cycling Canada, and Cycling BC to host the Fernie Legendary Summer Canada Cup / BC Cup Downhill Race!   Competitors can expect a newly designed fun, technical racecourse complete with the infamous “steeps”.  This Canada Cup / BC Cup DH race is part of the Dunbar Summer Series.

NEW THIS YEAR – We are excited to work with KASA (Kootenay Adaptive Sports Association) to offer an adaptive bike category in this year’s race.

Online registration is now closed. Registration is available in-person – cash only – at the Daylodge in the Plaza on Friday between 5-7 pm, and Saturday, 9-1 am.

To keep informed on all the Dunbar Summer Series Races, visit their Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/dunbarsummerseries.

Schedule:

A printable version of the schedule is available: Click here.

 

NOTE: The Timber Chair is open to racers only.  The Elk Chairlift is open 10:30 am – 4:30 pm all weekend for lift-accessed biking, hiking and sightseeing for racers, family and friends.

Lift Tickets:
Competitor 2 Day (Saturday & Sunday) Race Lift Ticket for the event will be $61.95+gst (Ages 18+) and $45.95+gst (Ages 13-17).

Competitors will pay and pick up their lift tickets at race check-in.

Friday & Monday – Competitors receive a 20% discount on their lift ticket.  To get the discount Friday, competitors must be pre-registered by Thursday.  Competitors, please head into Guest Services and let them know you are with the race. They will confirm with our registration list, and you will receive the discount.

Waiver:

All competitors must fill out RCR Event Waiver(s) prior to the event.   Any competitor 16 years of age and older (as of Day 1 of competition) must fill out an EVENT WAIVER.  You can fill the Event Waiver out yourself.  Any competitor 15 years of age and younger (as of Day 1 of competition) must fill out both the EVENT WAIVER and PARENTAL CONSENT WAIVER.  Your parent or legal guardian must complete these waivers.  You will receive an email with a copy of the completed waiver to confirm you have finished the process (you will receive one email per waiver, so competitors 15yrs and younger should receive 2 emails – one email with a copy of the Event Waiver and one with the copy of the Parental Consent Waiver).  Click on the online waiver button below to fill out the waiver.

Course:

The top half of the course starts with the infamous technical “Canadian Section” steeps.  The course then connects with the fast and loamy “Bicycle Thief” trail through the woods.  The trail then exits onto a wallride feature before a high-speed section to the Rockstar Tree Island and the final finish ramp.

Adaptive Riders will re-route from the start and race down the access road to connect with Bicycle Thief.

Racers can access the top of the course by riding down the access road from the top of the Timber Chair – follow the signs.  Please note: Access road is gravel, and there are loose sections, so please ride with care when heading to the start area.
