After a one year hiatus, we're dusting off the Fromme Cup and getting back to business: Wade's Excellent Adventure(WEA) is back Saturday, May 24th 2014. New this year, WEA is now part of the Sea to Sky Enduro Series. Looking back on WEA 2012, the event was Enduro before the hype machine caught onto Enduro. Does this mean we've gone hard core racer? No. The intent of WEA and the Sea To Sky Enduro series is a fun day of timed riding while raising money for the trails. We've got five stages lined up which will showcase Fromme throughout 21 kms of trails with 1200m of ascending. Being this is Wade's, we've got a few tricks up our sleeve with a couple courses surprises.

Course details will be released Thursday May 22nd in time for some pre-riding, stages start/finish will be marked on Friday in prep for Saturday's event. On one of the stages we'll have a speed gun set up to record your highest speed.

We've got a great list of prizing from our sponsors, Sram Reverb, Chromag gear, 100% goggles, OneUp, Marx Conditioning, Suspension Werx, Suspension Therapy, Bell Helmets, 2x Marzocchi forks, RaceFace gear, Oakley eyewear. Custom medals engraved by North Shore Billet, and each category winner will get their name on the Fromme Cup. Cash Purse for Pro category sponsored by MTB Trails Guide Books $250 for men and women.

Race categories: Pro Men, Pro Women, Masters Men (35+), Masters Women (35+), Open Men (under 35), Open Women (under 35).

Race Packet pickup starts at 09:00AM at the Water Towers on the top of Mountain Hwy Fromme.
Race starts at 10:30AM. Riders will leave in waves based on categories.

Cost for NSMBA members is $40, cost for non members is $50.


Trails for all, trails forever.

Hey GMAN84, you can always check out the NSMBA Toonies too, which will be running every second Thursday until July 31st. Also a great way to check out the Shore trails on Fromme [HTML_REMOVED] Seymour:

Got your membership yet? JOIN HERE

Pre-reg for all 8 events in the series HERE and save the hassle of remembering to bring a Toonie each week. Yes we'll have regular onsite night of registration.

We've got a great list of sponsors this year, support then for supporting the Toonies.

you can always make more money but you can never make more time.

I think it's called work for a reason. Or else they probably would have called it fun-time at the fun factory.

Basically ride UP every trail on Fromme and then down to the water towers on the road. Rinse, recycle, repeat.

Oh wait, i have that backwards.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.
