Nimby Fifty Returns to Pemberton May Long Weekend
The Nimby Fifty is set to return to Pemberton this May 20th, just late enough in the spring for the trails to be prime for riding.
The Nimby Fifty has become one of British Columbia's premier mountain bike races. This technical cross-country mountain bike marathon requires all the tools from the bikers tool belt. This race is meant for the serious mountain biker with tons of switchback and trail riding experience.
Nimby Fifty has hit maximum capacity every year after the it’s first year. Only 450 participants may sign-up and compete every year.
Red Bull Downtime
The epic, crowd appealing free-ride style downhills of the Nimby Fifty have helped them earn a partnership with Red Bull. A section of the race called Red Bull Downtime sounds like a resting point in the race, but of course, Nimby Fifty style, it’s the exact opposite.
This year, the Red Bull Downtime just got even longer! Downtime will now be at the Top of Fifty and taking it all the way over to Overnight Sensation. This is a real test of not only downhill skills but cross-country and enduro strength and fitness. The new bridge on Fifty is also a fair bit longer than the previous one.
