August 5, 2004 – The fifth stop on the Bonham & Co. Ontario Cup Mountain Bike Race Series starts Saturday, August 7th in beautiful cottage country at Buckwallow Cycling Center in Bracebridge. With increasing participant numbers this year in the Ontario Cup series, we expect over 500 competitors from across Ontario to participate in the Sunday X-country events. Anyone from a professional rider, to a beginner, will compete over a course that ranges from 6.5 km to 45 km in length. The short track racing on Saturday is exciting, and very fast, with riders bunched together over a 1km circuit.
Buckwallow Cycling Center has some of the most technical, fast-flowing
single track in Ontario. However the trails are relatively flat so
technically superior, fast-paced riders will especially appreciate this
