The Test of Metal is a 67-kilometre cross-country mountain bike race held annually in and around Squamish, British Columbia. The demanding course, with over 1,200 metres of climbing and 35 kilometres of singletrack, takes just under three hours for the fastest riders and between four and five hours for the majority of competitors. The number of entries allowed is limited (in 2006 to 800). The race is part of the Test of Metal Mountain Bike Festival, a weekend of mountain biking, trials, and related events.
