The Fernie Enduro virtual event stopped abruptly due to a angry grizzly on Project 9 – never mess with a feeding bear! Island Lake’s grizzly closure ended today, Monday July 26th, and we’re good to resume racing!

To reignite the “Ride Fast…Win Prizes” spirit were reopening the Enduro for a final week of racing.

Island Lake Lodge requests that all trail users be sure to:
– Use EXTREME caution
– Make lots of noise
– Leave dogs at home for the time being

From July 26th to August 1st the QOM and KOM for Project 9 is up for grabs, and the overall Fernie Enduro QOM and KOM. You can race Project 9 and better your times on Hyper Extension and Today’s Special for the overall, or haven’t raced – enter the race today and ride all three.

Race 3 starts June 29 on Project 9!

The signs are posted and the course is the same as last years. Race from the top to the road and be aware of riders on Lazy Lizard.
