To enter the country, it is only necessary to have a Canadian e-Travel Pass and we will be able to travel to one of the best destinations in the world for MTB enthusiasts. It is a country that has distinguished our sport in many aspects. Since its Freeride days, it has become the center of global attention for what may be the most famous bike park on the planet, Whistler. But we’re not just talking about gravitational systems. Canadian riders have been riding bikes that are now the latest trend, Down Country bikes for years. Races like the BC Bike Race have become an example of what is made for MTBs, halfway between the XC and the track.
