The summer stop for the Epic 8 Hour Series takes place at Hardwood Ski and Bike on Saturday July 26th. Although the weather looks a bit wet for this week, the forecast for the weekend is perfect for riding, and the trails are in fantastic shape!
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!
