Dear Sponsors, Racers, Community Partners and Volunteers,

As you are likely aware, the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic have recently intensified. The Province has issued a public statement directing event organizers to cancel all events over 50 people. Since the Vedder Mountain Classic is still 7 weeks away, the 2020 race has not yet incurred significant expenses (merchandise, race plates, facility rental fees, food and beverage, etc.). Therefore, the organizing committee is currently in a position where we can cancel the event and provide refunds, without taking a significant financial hit. This is important because the profits from this event go to the Fraser Valley Mountain Bikers Association (FVMBA) and help fund local trails.

Given the current pandemic and associated government direction, and also how the situation has unfolded globally, the Vedder Mountain Classic Organizing Committee has decided to cancel this year’s event until further notice. If the situation improves, we may consider holding a smaller, no-frills grassroots event, but for now, the May 9th event will not go ahead.

While we are sad to see the event cancelled despite our efforts to date, we feel we must do our part to ensure the health and safety of our community is protected. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all of you for your continued support of the Vedder Mountain Classic — without you, the event would not be possible.

Please note that due to the cancellation, all racer entry fees and sponsorships will be refunded. As we are volunteers, we kindly ask for your patience while we work through this process. We will connect with you in the future should the situation change.

In the meantime, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
