The Nesters Market Squamish Test of Metal cross-country mountain bike race covers a 67 km course with over 1,200 m of climbing and 35 km of single-track. The mass start of 1,000 riders is one of the highlights of this event which brings thousands of people into Squamish, supporting hundreds of riders from all over British Columbia.
But Test of Metal is more than a single event; it's a festival with activities for everyone who's looking for mountain bike-related fun. While waiting for racers to complete the course, spectators at the finish area at the Loggers Sports Grounds can take in the CrossFit Squamish Strength in Stone competition, along with the many vendors, food and beer garden.
