Ontario Provincial Road Championships
The city of Elliot Lake will once again fill its quiet northern Ontario roads with the Province's top road cyclists. The Jewel in the Wilderness will include the Provincial Road Championships. Ontario's fastest and strongest will battle it out on the challenging 22km loop that features a variety of terrain that will select a worthy champion to wear the Provincial jersey.
The City of Elliot Lake is located between Sault St. Marie and Sudbury.
The Jewel in the Wilderness will take place from August 23-24. Saturday kicks off with the leg burning and lung busting 7-9 minute blast up to the fire tower lookout to crown the Provincial Hill Climb champion. On Saturday afternoon riders will rocket through the clean and crisp air of downtown Elliot Lake for a classic urban Criterium. Sunday's race is the Granddaddy of them all, the Provincial Road Race championships.
Please consult the updated technical guide (PDF). More local area accommodations have been listed.
