After a brief one year hiatus, Crank The Shield is back and it's better than ever! Course deisgners Sean Ruppel and Matt Douglas have cooked up an all new "lollipop" course design that has riders spending both Friday and Saturday night at the super comfortable Camp White Pine. Starting and finishing in the Haliburton Forest Centre, the 2012 edition will include some familiar trails to years past, such as the uber-fun bermed downhill at Sir Sam's, and 20 kilometres of new singletrack two years in the making.
Crank The Shield has always attracted a diverse range of riders, including some of Canada's most talented racers and past Crank champions Peter Glassford (Trek Canada) and Matt Hadley (Xprezo Borsao). For 2012, World Cup superstars Geoff Kabush and Derek Zandstra (Scott-3Rox) will be on hand to wage their own battle against the rugged terrain and stiff competition.
With lots of options for participation, Crank The Shield is now more accessible than ever. Register today and don't miss out on a truly unique and breath taking weekend of riding in Haliburton cottage country.
