Vedder Mountain Revival Race, May 30th

Vedder Mountain Revival Race, Chilliwak BC - May 30th

The third stop of EMP's Gary Fisher Race for the Trails series was the oldest mountain bike race in British Columbia. The Vedder Mountain Bike Race started two decades ago and has been one of the most popular events. This event is more than just a race, it's a family event that brings out riders of all ages. Unlike the Ridge classic, organizers and racers were blessed by dry, yet overcast weather. It was the perfect day for racing.
