Big Pig Mountain Biking Festival has been rescheduled for September 26, 27 and 28th.


More information will follow shortly on this new scheduled date, but you can expect events to unfold as planned. We will also be opening the Zone 4 registration once again, and will post that link once it is active.

We would like to thank everyone in the community for their support in the difficult decision to cancel the Big Pig original date of Aug 15-17th.

 

Here's the reasoning behind the reschedule:

Due to Wildfire activity and evacuation alerts just west of Burns Lake, Big Pig Bike Festival 2014 has been cancelled for the weekend of Aug 15-17th.

 

The Big Pig Mountain Biking Festival is locked in for September 26-28, 2014

Come one, come all!!! It really doesn't matter how old you are, what your style of riding, or how serious you are about mountain biking, the Big Pig is a friendly fun weekend of fat tire festivities.

ZONE 4 REGISTRATION NOW ONLINE HERE

Fun for the whole family starts with registration friday night, kids races, along with shuttle rides and an early look at the courses.

What is "Dante's Inferno"?
This is a cross-country endurance race 80 km in length. The length of the race has increased by 10 km per year, culminating in a 100 km race in 2016. The course is 10 km in length, with a check-in at the Kager Lake parking lot. Riders are required to dismount, have their punch-card updated, and ride on! For most riders, the race will last 4-7 hours to complete the full 80 km. Riders can complete one lap, multiple laps or try for all 8!
 

What is the "Burnt Bike Challenge (BBC)"?

BLMBA is adding a cross-country "taste-tester" for mountain bikers with a "discriminating palette" this year. But be forewarned: the BBC is not for the faint of heart. This "ultimate 30 km loop" begins by climbing up Razorback, an 18 km all-mountain trail, before "rewarding" you with thrilling descents and even more climbs. Guaranteed to satisfy!

What is "Dante's Enduro"

For the truly masochistic, this event if for you! Combining the inferno loops and the BBC, you begin at 8:00 a.m. and do however many laps of the 10 km loop as you can before 11:00 a.m AND THEN race the BBC! Finish off any remaining laps to complete the full 80 km. Strangely, a mental health assessment is NOT necessary before registration!

What is the “WILBUR’S WHEELAY”?
This is a cross-country race, with an emphasis on fun! Teams of all ages are encouraged to participate. There is no limit to the number of team members that ride the 5 km race course. The winning team rides the most loops (in the shortest time) in the 3 hour time limit wins!
