Dunbar Summer Series is back for another exciting year of downhill racing in B.C., including hosting Canadian downhill national championships.

New for 2020 is a more compact race schedule. The three stop series will be made up of back-to-back race weekends, with a mid-week stop at Panorama between. Book your time off now, Dunbar Summer Series 2020 will be mountain bike summer camp for adults!

The series will be book-ended by national calendar events, while the mid-week Panorama event will be a purely Dunbar Summer Series event.

Fernie kicks the series off with a Canada Cup / BC Cup event at Fernie Alpine Resort. After a year off the calendar while the resort upgraded its chairlift infrastructure, the long-standing venue returns for 2020. Dates are 17-19 July.

Next up is the Panorama BC Open, on Tuesday July 21 and Wednesday July 22. The site of 2019 Canadian DH nationals will serve as an excellent tune-up for riders chasing the maple leaf later that week in Golden, B.C.

This big week of racing will conclude with the return of Canadian downhill national championships to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, B.C. The classic Canadian DH venue will host nationals on July 24-26, 2020.

As usual, Canadian freeride legend-turned event host Brett Tippie will be on the mic all week, keeping the crowd entertained and the stoke level sky high.
