Thanks to the 170 people who entered the Funduro event on 29th November. The day started with some rain which made the first stages of the day pretty slippy. There was so much mud, bent derailleurs for some but there were also smiles. The rain eased and the wind picked up enough to start drying out the trails to make for some epic riding conditions.
After the race there was a BBQ cranking, chilled beer from Deep Creek Brewing Company, pizza plus some great yarns about how the day went.
Unfortunately we did have an issue with our timing and that is still being worked on by onetime. We had some pretty solid riders out there so we were super keen to see who took the win … Hopefully Onetime can work out the problem!!
I would like to say a big thank you to the marshals for roughing it out there in the elements and a big thank you to our Sponsors:
MEC for the great prizes,
Deep Creek Brewery for the beer and t-shirts,
Clif bar for the before race treats and
Seat saver for the spot prizes.
All and all it was an epic day and the smiles afterwards said it all!!
What is a Funduro?
The PCBC Funduro is an event for everyone young to old, who loves riding their mountain bikes, cruising up the hills and racing down. That’s right you are only timed on the “down” section. Timing this year will be provided by ONETIME, – proper timing!!!
You will be provided with a map before the race and you select your own route to complete (in any order) the 7 race stages within 4 hours. The race stages selected are a combination of flowing and technical grade 3 and grade 4 single track. If you are considering entering please make sure you can ride grade 4 trails (the ones in the open and in the natives). We also have an e-bike category.
