August 31/09 11:26 am - Ontario Marathon Mountain Bike Championships
Posted by Editoress on 08/31/09
There is one week to go until the inaugural Ontario Marathon Mountain Bike Championships and Half-Marathon Championships. There is still time to pre-register for this exciting and fun new racing format. Using one big lap for each length, riders will fly through Mansfield Outdoor Center and its iconic trails, the long flowing single track and double track of the Dufferin County Forest and the rugged terrain of the Simcoe County Forest.
Come test your skill and fitness against some of Ontario's best cyclists on a new course in one of the provinces most venerable venues.
The Marathon course will feature some of the long revered climbs of M.O.C, along with the fast flowing descents. While anyone will be able to ride the single track, only those with the technical skills will ride fast.
The Half-Marathon course will omit the big climbs and test riders skills and endurance with long rolling single track.
