DIRT EVENTS

Grind QOM / KOM
It’s finally time to settle that score with your friends. Who can climb to the top of Blue Mountain the fastest! Challenge your friends, try it on different bikes and be a part of the crowning of the King and Queen of the iconic GRIND climb.
Riders in this event self-seed within their respective age category, the fastest and fittest start first.

Dual Slalom
A Sea Otter staple, this is head-to-head down a custom-built fast track of jumps, roller and berm, the course is designed with all riding abilities in mind, so be sure to give it a shot! We’ll be running this event Canadian style, keeping it relaxed and about the fun. What does that mean? Riders will be able to race against whomever they want, each rider gets two laps and your time will rank you against your age category. Riders registered in the Pro categories will race ‘old-school’, battling head-to-head in heats, to crown the first ever Sea Otter Canada Dual Slalom Champion.

XC Short Track Elite
Presented by:

XCC is the newest addition to the cross-country discipline, often referred to as the “20-Minute Sufferfest”, this event is a 1-1.5km long course that sweeps through the lower mountain and village. It’s a mass-start, action-packed, spectator friendly event and has a whole lot of sprinting. The XCC Elite event is meant for competitive racers only and for good reason, this course is gruelling. For riders looking for more of a multi-lap, relay race, check out the XC Short Track 3hr.

XC Short Track 3hr – Single, 2-man/4-man Relay
Presented by:

Looking for an event for the whole family, want to wear silly costumes and socialize? This is the event for you. Utilizing the same course as the XC Short Track Elite event, you can guarantee you’ll be dizzy after seeing how many laps you can do around this fun, non-intimidating course. You can compete in this category solo (one person), or in a team of 2 or a team of 4. The team portion sees riders in a relay style of event, where the winning team is the one that completes the most amount of laps in 3 hours. But that’s not what this event is all about, it’s about getting out with your friends, riding your bike and glueing a permanent smile to your face!

Air Downhill
Call it what you want, but we’re staking a claim that this event should just be titled ‘FUN’. It doesn’t really matter what your time is in this race, it’s more about how hard you ‘send it’! Racing down Blue Mountain Resort’s premier jump trail will certainly have its eyebrow-raising moments, what’s not to love!? Jumps, downhill and speed, this is an event for the whole squad. Open to any age category, be sure you meet the equipment requirements.

Enduro
This event defines what mountain biking is all about. Adventure. Untimed uphills and timed descents, this event will tour you all across the mountain, riding some of the hardest trails, back-to-back, and linking in trails that are normally closed to the general public.
This enduro adventure is the only Enduro World Series Qualifier event in Eastern Canada and is also a part of the Norco Canadian Enduro Series. By racing in this event you can qualify for the Enduro World Series.
