Community Outreach
By involving previously disadvantaged individuals we ensure participation in our events for those who would never have such an opportunity. Our development rider program as well as bicycle give away at each event means that the Big 5 inspires everyone involved in the event to see that they can effect positive change in their community by simply participating.

Family, family, family
More than anything family is the driving motivation behind the Big 5 series. Mountain biking is unique in its appeal to all ages and each event ensures that it places as much emphasis on catering for the leisure rider as it does for the competitive racer.

The Big Five Mountain Bike Series has come a long way since 2006. Cyclists compete for honors by racing the full series where their best four times count. Growth in all distances the 10km, 25km and 50km has been phenomenal with a 30% growth in the last year.
