As the Canadian National Championships for downhill and endurance mountain biking crossed the finish line, a number of Squamish athletes landed a spot on the podium.
Squamish’s Remi Gauvin became the first official Canadian Enduro National Champion when he won the enduro with a time of 33:33:16. He later came in 11th place in Elite Men in his category’s downhill race.
Miranda Miller found herself celebrating on the podium twice during the championships, which were on July 28 at Panorama Mountain Resort. The Squamish biker took third place for Elite Women with a time of 3:36.85 +11.14. Miller earned her spot on the podium for a second time during the championships after her enduro race at 41:48.88, putting her in second place for Elite Women.
Finished 2nd at Enduro National Champs yesterday after losing 40secs on Stage 1 😬. I managed to claw back time to only miss out by 2secs after a massive day. Stoked with how I rode in the race! The course was very hard and definitely not my favorite as I felt it lacked variety in terrain. It was, of course, still a fun day ripping around the woods with the homies. DH finals about to go down. What’s 1 more lap!?! #longlivechainsaw #konabikes PC:Sebastian Schiek
