Canadian National Enduro Series ("CNES")
The Canadian National Enduro Series has quickly become the flagship enduro series in Canada and the preeminent enduro series in North America. With events in BC, AB, ON, and QC, the Series represents a solid Canadian competitive stage for athletes focusing on the Enduro discipline to garner serious mileage, while using this series as a stepping stone to the EWS.
For 2019, the focus of the CNES will be once again; expert riders only, technically/physically demanding stages, BIG days, with some new venues thrown into the mix.

About the series:
The Canadian National Enduro Series Championship (CNES) is a subsidiary of the BC Enduro Series Inc. (BCES) and shares the common interest of working in collaboration with host communities to provide an authentic adventure for riders looking to compete, travel and experience mountain biking through Enduro Racing.
The BCES will continue to support the trail networks our races use through the donation of 10% of all race entries back to the local trail club/society. To date, we’ve donated more than $90,000 back to local trail clubs in host communities. Thank you to all of the local clubs/societies that have welcomed us into their communities!
The goal of the CNEC is to foster a more competitive and legitimate Enduro racing culture/venue for Enduro riders in Canada. The CNES will use existing BCES venues and will focus on track difficulty, competitiveness and racing. Ultimately, naming the fastest Enduro Rider in Canada!
The CNES was created throughout the summer of 2015 by Ted Morton. 2016 was the CNES’s first year of operation, however, the CNES is built within the framework and model of the BCES, which is Canada’s largest Enduro Racing Series and the most attended mountain bike race series on the west coast of Canada with more than 2000 competitors per year.
The CNES is the quintessential enduro proving grounds for Canada. It is aimed at highlighting Junior, Grassroots and rising Pro Athletes alike.
BC Enduro Series gives 10% of all participant registrations as a donation back to the local club!
As we all know, we love to ride new trails and also existing trails that are constantly maintained and looked after. As much as we would like to believe so, there are no 'trail fairies' that come by each night and buff up the trails and fix damaged trails while you sleep soundly in your bed ready for the next day of riding! It's the hard work and dedication of all the local clubs and trail societies and endless hours of the volunteers in each of these race locations that keep you riding amazing trails summer after summer.
In return for the unbelievable support that the BC Enduro Series receives from all these wonderful towns, we will be providing a donation back to them to go towards building and maintaining the trails that we will be riding throughout the BC Enduro Series and Canadian Enduro Championship.
Over the past seasons we've given 10% of all racer entries back to the host destination trail club.
To date, we've given back over $90,000 in funding!
