Fivers

What is a Fiver?

Our Fiver Series is a collection of fun community riding events. For $5 (and a current NSMBA membership) you will enjoy an evening of leisurely racing followed by food and beverages. This is a great community event open to any riding ability and experience level.

Fivers are Typically hosted bi-weekly on Thursday evenings. Registration opens at 5:30 pm at the designated registration point with a rolling start open from 5:45 pm to 6:45 pm. (Please note that some Fiver Events – ex.Youth and Women’s Fivers – may take place on different days and times.)

If the race is at Fromme the registration booth will be found by the main parking lot and if on Seymour it will be found at Parkgate Park, unless it is stated otherwise in the posted race details.

Fiver Courses and Rider Categories

Course details will be released two days before each week’s race at Trailforks.com.

Each Fiver course will consist of 3 timed stages (Enduro style). Riders will follow the course and scan their timing chip at the start and finish of each stage (course marshalls will be present at each stage).

At the registration tent, all riders can choose to be placed in the following categories (unless stated otherwise – ex. Women’s Fiver):

  • Men
  • Women
  • Junior Men (under 18)
  • Junior Women (under 18)
  • Non-Binary

Please note that e-bikes are not permitted by current regulation in our Fiver Events.
