The Tournament Capital Games is NOT a BC Enduro Series event, however it is run by the same team, and it is a grassroots event, focused on newer riders and women.  The idea behind the event is to provide a fun and relaxing environment for ALL AGES, to compete in an enduro and xc event.

GIVING BACK TO THE TRAIL:

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 National Enduro Series

 

The BCES and CNEC give 10% of all racer entries back to the host destination trail club, giving away more than $50,000 in the past three years!
