CANADIAN ENDURO CHAMPIONSHIP
Only pro (Elite) level categories are sanctioned by Cycling Canada. These are the only categories requiring a UCI or any type of licensing.
Age categories DO NOT need any type of license.
Competing at these races will give you points that you can put towards becoming an athlete on the EWS Reserved list. Once on the list, you'll no longer have to apply to the EWS Lottery to get an entry to ANY EWS Race. Additionally, the winner in each official EWS category at every Qualifier Series will also be automatically added to the Reserved List.
This is really important as a stepping stone for serious enduro racers, as your participation in these races not only puts you in contention for the Canadian Title but allows further opportunities to make that next jump onto to the world stage without having to break the bank!
EWSQ Categories are: Men, Women, Master Women 35+, Master Men 40+, U21 Men and U21 Women
EMBA MEMBERSHIP: Riders wishing to accumulate points or be entered into the Reserved List must purchase an Enduro Mountain Bike Association membership. You can do that here.
POINTS:: Riders will also get MEC Canadian National Enduro Series Points
Getting Here: Use Trailforks or Google Maps to find your way to Panorama Mountain Resort.
Accommodation: We will post any special rates from preferred partners here. Check back for updates!
Series Info: All riders must read the entire series Info page AND sign a waiver prior to registration.

GIVING BACK TO THE TRAIL:
As we all know, we love to ride new trails and also existing trails that are constantly maintained and looked after. As much as we would like to believe so, there are no 'trail fairies' that come by each night and buff up the trails and fix damaged trails while you sleep soundly in your bed ready for the next day of riding! It's the hard work and dedication of all the local clubs and trail societies and endless hours of the volunteers in each of these race locations that keep you riding amazing trails summer after summer.
In return for the unbelievable support that the BC Enduro Series receives from all these wonderful towns, we will be providing a donation back to them to go towards building and maintaining the trails that we will be riding throughout the BC Enduro Series and Canadian National Enduro Series
The BCES and CNEC give 10% of all racer entries back to the host destination trail club, giving away more than $50,000 in the past three years!
