Bear Mountain — Home to the Canadian National Mountain Bike Team.

Bear Mountain is committed to helping Canada’s Mountain Bikers Achieve World-Class Performances.

In late January 2015, Cycling Canada proudly announced its partnership with Ecoasis and the designation of Bear Mountain as the Official High Performance Training Centre of the Canadian National Mountain Bike Team.

Canadian Mountain Bike Head Coach and Victoria resident Dan Proulx expressed his excitement over the great opportunities for the National Mountain Bike Team going forward with the new Training Centre at Bear Mountain.

“Bear Mountain will provide the National Team with a great opportunity to build a year­round high-performance centre that supports Canada’s future champions.” Proulx added, “the weather, technical terrain and daily training environment in this region will help our riders fully prepare for international competition. The National Mountain Bike team has a strong history here. Many of the best Canadian mountain bikers have perfected their skills and fitness on these trails.”

The Partnership will run from 2015 to 2020 and is perfectly aligned with Cycling Canada’s vision to become a leading cycling nation by 2020 and beyond.

“We’re excited to host the first National Team Camp at Bear Mountain Resort. We’ve already built a World Class daily training environment here. We’re looking forward to bringing in more National Team riders from across the country ­ helping them acquire work ethic, skills and fitness needed to compete for the top of the podium.” – National Coach Dan Proulx
