This exciting venue and race course showcases some of Ontario’s best mountain bike trails. The singletrack flows with elements of roots, Canadian Shield outcroppings and some technical challenges. The event will feature 3 courses for riders of all ability levels. The 1:30pm Expert/Elite course will feature a never before raced section called West D’Nile. This 500m singletrack rides almost entirely on exposed Canadian Shield outcroppings and is one of Ontario’s most unique, and challenging singletracks. “The course is not very hilly, but it’s rocky technical elements offer something unique to the Plastiglas Ontario Cup Series” explains Chico Racing’s course designer, Sean Ruppel.
