Bear Mountain Enduro March 31st 2019 (Series Points Race #1)
Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Enduro p/b Marty’s Mountain Cycle. The event will serve as the kick-off event for the Island Cup Mountain Bike Enduro Series and feature the pristine trails of the Bear Mountain Bike Park with up to five timed technical descents. Riders will be timed individually with the completion of each section. The riders with the lowest accumulated time for the sections will be called the winners. The Rocky Mountain Enduro will offer a fun and fast Enduro experience for riders of all abilities. The route will feature up to four runs of four epic Bear Mountain sections: Flow Trail, Chainsaw Trail, Skirt Mountain Trail, and the New Bears Back trail.
**IMPORTANT** – Chainsaw and Flow Trail will be open and available for pre-ride on any day leading into the event weekend.

Notes about the course:
There is a new section of lower chainsaw that we will be using for Intermediate/Expert and Elite racers “Little Bones”.
The reason for Martys 1/2 is to have a separate timeout for each run to help with the accuracy of timing. Riders will turn LEFT for their first run and RIGHT for their second. There will be signage on course to help with directions.
Location: Victoria. Bear Mountain.
This enduro is a great “warmup” race for the season. The past 2 years the organizers and sponsors brought more swag and prizes than any other race on the Island .
