2017 Vedder Mountain Classic
Race Details:

Nestled in the hills surrounding the fertile farmlands of the Fraser Valley lies a growing labyrinth of some of the most amazing single track found in British Columbia. The local trail builders have been slowly cultivating a very unique, must-ride destination, that is becoming the next mountain bike mecca in British Columbia.

The Vedder Mountain Classic will showcase some of the best trails that Vedder has to offer: epic single track climbs, technical sections, long loam filled descents, smooth rolling contours, rocks, roots, and did we mention loam This race will have something for everyone.

Once one of the oldest continuously running mountain bike events in Canada, the Vedder Mountain Classic has a rich history. The race was originally started by local Vancouver legend Jacob Helibro, who went on to become one of the founders of Rocky Mountain Bicycles and Kona Bikes. He is better known as "Jake the Snake" – that’s right, the guy that Kona named their bike after. There is certainly a nostalgic sentiment with the resurrection of the Classic, and there has been a lot of buzz about the revival of this iconic race.

We are also offering a shortened course, for racers keen to take on some of the epic single track that Vedder has to offer in a more condensed format. Riders looking for something less committing can enter the "Short Course", providing an opportunity to experience Vedder’s highlights in a less grueling manner.
