Whistler Bike Park Trails: Multi-stage race throughout the Whistler Valley and Whistler Mountain Bike Park

Staying the course and laying it all out on the dirt alongside friends and legends is the order of the day in enduro racing, and though the course changes every year, this event lives up to its notoriety every year. The trails selected for this multi-stage race will reward the generalist over the specialist, while showcasing the best of Whistler’s rooty, coastal rainforest and the challenging scree steeps of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. The Camelbak Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized is Round 6 of the Enduro World Series for 2019.
