February 9/10 9:05 am - New Ontario Provincial MTB Championship Venue Announced
Posted by Editoress on 02/9/10
The Plastiglas Ontario Cup Series is pleased to announce a new venue to host the Ontario MTB Championships on August 22, 2010. Woodnewton is a private 200 acre parcel of land just south of the Town of Uxbridge featuring amazing rolling hills, forests and terrain that will be a mainstay of mountain bike race venues for years to come.
Chico Racing began working with the land owner last summer to create a myriad of singletrack utilizing the unique topography to create a fantastic site for the Ontario Championships. "One of Chico Racing's goals has been to keep the Plastiglas Ontario Cup Series fresh and exciting by developing new courses and venues," says Chico Racing President Adam Ruppel. The chief course designer Sean Ruppel adds,"Our company began in Uxbridge, recently named the trail capital of Canada, and it is fitting that we host the 2010 Ontario Championships here."
Woodnewton won't be open for regular riding, however the venue will offer select pre-riding opportunities and a few weekly races prior to the Ontario Championships so riders will have plenty of opportunity to inspect the course. The course has been designed from scratch as a proper mountain bike race course with technical features, and elements that will make it a racer favourite.
