It’s going to be a fun weekend here in Bellingham with the combination of both the North American Enduro Tour coming to town and the 5 Point Film Festival! We want to provide a brief summary of the events and hope to see you out there as a spectator or racer.
First off, enduro racers have a chance to practice the marked, opened but unsanctioned course in the Chuckanuts starting at noon, Friday the 26th. Here’s a link to the course maps: http://www.cascadiadirtcup.org/chuckanut_course Also on Friday is the packet pickup/rider’s meeting at Fanatik Bike Co, from 5-7pm with fun contests (bring your bike!), door prizes and 1 free beer for those 21 & over. Racers must still check in on race day to get your timing chip. The 5 Point Film festival will be showing their first series of crazy, wild outdoor films at the Mt. Baker Theater from 7pm- 10pm
Satuday the 26th is the big day! If you’re coming out to heckle and cheer please consider carpooling, riding your bike, and/or parking at the Fragrance Lake/Clayton Beach parking lot. Bring your Discover Pass.
Here’s the schedule:
8am-9:30am is the packet/timing chip pickup, 8:50am racer call ups start, 9am beginner’s load shuttles
9am is the first wave off , 3:00pm is the racer cutoff and finally, the awards ceremony takes place at 3:30pm.
But we’re not done yet!
The 5 Point Film Festival has offered to provide a free shuttle from Larabee State Park to the Mt. Baker Theater for the second showing of some radical, adventurous outdoor films. So if you’re camping out at Larabee you can continue to celebrate in down town Bellingham. The shuttle van will be departing from the parking lot closest to the amphitheater at 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm and will be returning to Larabee at 10:30pm and midnight.

Baker Theater ticket office a list of all of our wonderful volunteers so if you are a volunteer and decide to go to film festival, give them your name and they’ll take $3 off you ticket. If you’re a racer, show the ticket office your number plate and you also get the $3 discount.
