July 8/10 10:23 am - Kingston MTB Marathon Ready for Riders with New Trails
Posted by Editoress on 07/8/10
substance projects has designed and built new single-track for Kingston's first ever Mountain Bike Marathon, set to race on Sunday, July 18th.
A mix of new single-track and the diverse trails already at the J&J Cycles trails is what competitors be riding at the Kingston Mountain Bike Marathon. "It's a great course," says designer and substance projects founder, Dan Marshall. "Long bridges, rocks, flowing berms and a couple of surprises are in store for racers."
A short-track Saturday night race for early arrivals, free weekend camping (Saturday night through Monday morning) and a Sunday post-event BBQ (and event T-Shirt for those registered by Monday, July 12th) are included in registration for this first ever Ontario Mountain Bike Marathon in Kingston. Riders who only want to race on Saturday night's short track pay $10.
"Eastern Ontario doesn't offer as many mountain bike events as Western Ontario, and when J&J Cycle invited me out, I was happy to come and create one," says Marshall.
