The Fernie Mountain Bike Club with Cycling BC are proud to announce we will be hosting a weekend of cross-country racing here in beautiful Fernie, BC.

Two days of XCO/XCM action! Both XCO and XCM races are sanctioned by Cycling BC, both races will also include Alberta Cup points.

Saturday's XCO (Cross Country Olympic) Race will take in the fast and flowy Ridgemont trail network with an approximate 3.5km loop. Fast pace, shoulder to shoulder racing. Learn more about XCO races.

Sunday's XCM (Cross Country Marathon) Race will tackle the more technical Mt Fernie Provincial Park trail network with an approximate 11km loop.  Duration is expected to be 5 hours. How many laps can you do? With rooty trails and long climbs it's sure going to test every part of your riding. Blog: 5 Things to Know about XCM Racing
