Crank The Shield
3-Day Mountain Bike Stage Race
September 19 Ë† 21, 2008
Multi-day mountain bike events are increasing in popularity and Chico Racing is excited to present Ontario's first 3-day point-to-point race. Crank The Shield is destined to become a classic attracting endurance riders from across North America to experience Ontario's wilderness.
From it's regal beginnings in Muskoka's cottage country to it's incredible finish in Haliburton Forest, Crank The Shield will wind you through some of the most breathtaking scenery Ontario's near north has to offer.
Secondary roadways, backroads, ATV, and mountain bike specific trails are combined to create this 240 km journey over the three days. Don't worry about bringing your bag or tent, as everything is taken care of for the duration of the event. We will be utilizing the fantastic Camp Kandalore and White Pine as our stopovers so participants will be sleeping in cabins! Competitors have the choice of riding this on a two-person team, or participating as an individual.
Registration just opened for this event and we are limiting it to 350 competitors. Visit www.chicoracing.com for more information, and registration for Crank The Shield.
