New for 2018: Feel free to come earlier to get changed and your bike unloaded from the car etc, but registration will not open until 6:20pm.

Since 2003, racers have come to Mountainview to enjoy the varied courses and laid-back atmosphere.

There are 4 courses to choose from, so there is something for everyone. The courses change throughout the season, to keep things fresh. A year end Barbeque and prizes…it doesn’t get much better than this!

Categories:

Unlimited – The longest, most technically challenging course, lung busting climbs and technical downhills that keep even seasoned veterans on their toes.

Super Sport – Not quite as technical as Unlimited, but enough climbing and fast-double track to get a serious workout.

Sport – mostly singletrack, without anything too outrageous, this is a fun chance to test your skills, and work on that buttery-smooth flow.

Just for Fun – Low key, flat trails, and our shortest race. Perfect for kids and new riders to get used to riding singletrack!

Categories: Elementary School Boys, High School Men, Open Men, 40+ Men, Open Women

Prices:

$10 / week…Each additional family member is 8$ / week.

$150 – Season Pass…Each additional family member is $130.

Insurance:

Each rider must be a member of the Ontario Cycling Association, and/or hold a valid UCI licence. Riders can purchase a 2016 OCA Citizen Permit, which will insure them for most Ontario events, including the Mountainview 9 Lives Enduro. – All OCA Citizen Permits are to be sold online. Please visit this website to purchase your license.

Year End Festivities:

A barbeque held after the last race of the season is both the awards ceremony for the race series, as well as the wrap-up party for Mountainview MTB. Come out for some inexpensive ‘que, a chance at some draw prizes, and a few laughs with friends. Prizes will be awarded for the series champions.

 

TNTT – Thursday Night Time Trials @ Kennedy Road
Jun 28 all-day

For nearly 10 years now we have run a weekly time trial series called the TNTT. (Thursday Night Time Trial) There was a TT held on what is now the TNTT course for many years before we arrived. It started with a few friends taking turns timing each other. We enjoyed that style for a few seasons then we partnered up with Bob Haufler and the Midweek Cycling club to try and build the series into what it is today.  Two dreamers hoping to grow and share our enjoyment of the sport with others each and every Thursday night. What was once 6-8 riders self timing each other is now the biggest and best weekly TT series in the GTA.

 

Our COURSE

Start line – Kennedy Rd and Elgin Mills  Finish line – Kennedy Rd just North of 19th Side Road

Event Information:

  • First rider off at 7pm.
  • Please have a light on your bike
  • Make time to pre-ride the course
  • Shoulder check when passing.
