NIMBY Fifty 2014 - Winter Newsletter

Posted on February 15, 2014

Hello NIMBY Fifty Fans,

We hope this email finds you happy and healthy. What a wild winter it's been, especially now that the snow has finally arrived!

It's hard to believe race season is almost here. Online registration for the fifth annual NIMBY Fifty Saturday May 31st, 2014 in Pemberton, BC., opens this Saturday, February 15th!

A few new and fun things to tell you about:

Introducing the NIMBY Platinum Club

Train hard, ride fast. Those who finish the race under 2:45:00 (MEN) and 3:15:00 (WOMEN), will gain NIMBY Platinum Status. Platinum Club members will then be allowed to start in a special cordoned off area right behind the pro/elite riders in the starting corral, and you will also receive a special commemorative prize to recognize your achievement. For 2014, we're going to take the results of 2013 and those riders who finished in under 2:45:00 (MEN) and 3:15:00 (WOMEN) will gain access to the Platinum starting corral starting this year.

Early Bird Trip Giveaway

Register before April 1st, and you will have a chance to win an all inclusive 3-day Yukon mountain bike trip with Boréale Biking (airfare not included) for you and a friend, a value of over $1500 ($750/person). Checkout our blog for full details.

Red Bull Downtime is back!

Red Bull will once again be supporting a downhill stage of the event – a race within a race. The male and female competitors with the fastest Red Bull Downtime will each win $250. The overall fastest Red Bull Downtime will also win a team entry to Red Bull Divide and Conquer on Vancouver’s North Shore. For more info, check it out.
