June 29, 2011 (Oro, ON) – The course for Dukes Summer Epic 8 Hour at Hardwood Ski and Bike is now marked and open for pre-riding! We spent much of the fall rebuilding and redesigning the Summer Epic 8 Hour course to make it more fun, less climbing, and flow much better. There is over 3 km of new singletrack! No excuses not to pre-ride with the course open this early. Check out the virtual course HERE. Way too cool!
The course is open for pre-riding during regular Hardwood hours of operation only, and regular trail fees apply until Friday July 22nd.Course maps available at ticket purchase. Group discounts are available for teams and clubs. See the Hardwood website HERE for hours and trail fees.
Why an Epic 8?? The Epic 8 Hour Relay is all about the camaraderie, sportsmanship and the gritty, hard-core enjoyment of riding with friends. The Epic 8 Hour relay is a personal and team challenge to complete as many laps as possible from 10 am to 6 pm. Many riders prefer the 8 hour format for a solo challenge, but the majority of riders still enjoy the mix of fun, fast riding and the competitive (or not so competitive), social team atmosphere. Whether riding just for fun, or vying for a podium spot in your category, the Epic 8 Hour will be a memorable experience!
