OMBA Mini Enduro – Saturday Sept 23, 2017

OMBA is pleased to announce the OMBA MINI ENDURO

WHEN: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2017, 10am Registration, 11am (ish) start. 

WHERE: CAMP FORTUNE – VALLEY SIDE (XC SIDE)
WHAT: ENDURO RACE: a 3 stage race descending the super fun Brian’s, Social Decline and Blackbear trails. Blackbear is currently being refurbished to flow better and an alternate ride-around line is planned for the steep rocky section). Racers will have the option to race each trail twice and pick their best time; or to skip segments they are not up for.

GROUP RIDE: There will also be a group ride for those not interested in racing (no registration fee for that but waivers will need to be filled out). The official group ride will start at 12 pm.

DEMO DAY and SWAP MEET: Rumour has it there will be a demo day and a swap meet going on as well which are being organized by OMBA members Joe and Cate. Details to be provided by them but it will be located on the Skyline side (where the DH happens).

BBQ to follow.

COST: $20 cash only – upon registration on site. Proceeds go to insurance costs and any profit goes to OMBA to fund its goal: trails for you to ride.

WAIVER FORMS: to be filled out on site.

VOLUNTEERS: would be much appreciated. We need a few people for timing as well as ride leaders for the group ride. Contact Brian Wilson if you can help out.

WARNING TO FQSC RACERS:

The OMBA mini-enduro is not a FQSC sanctioned event. FQSC has notified us that they don’t want FQSC licensed racers participating in this event and those who choose to participate anyways could face sanctions from FQSC. If you do not have a racing licence from FQSC, this does not affect you in any way.
