Are you ready for a little suffering? You’d better be! There’s enough vertical gain built into this mountain bike race that you’ll think you’re on your way to heaven. But what goes up will surely come down—fast! So prepare yourself for a kick-in-the-pants race that’s sure to ruin a few britches as well.
The venue for the bike race is the Canmore Nordic Centre, known for hosting regional, national, and World Cup caliber mountain biking events. You might remember the Canmore Nordic Centre as home to the 1988 Olympic alpine skiing and cross-country events. But where there’s great skiing in winter, there’s great mountain biking in summer. The Canmore Nordic Centre has over 100km of single and double-track mountain biking trails that will make even the most persistent but loveable pessimist smile!
Solo bike racers can choose either 50km or 100km.
If you’re up for the team relay, it’s a grueling—oh but it’s fun—10-hour event. But remember, team size is limited to 2-5 members.
