Building on last years success, we are holding the second SPUN Mountain Bike Festival at Blue Mountain Resorts in Collingwood,ON.
On July 15-16, the weekend before the mountain bike nationals, Blue Mountain will be host to a full weekend of events. Some of the events will include a XC and DH points race, Dual Slalom Race, Big Air competition, something we call SPUNCROSS with four people down the dual course at once, and many more events.
If you aren't into racing than come out and check out the vendor area, the trials expo, or the bands on saturday night while the racing is going on under the lights.
All in all it looks like it is going to be another great weekend to get SPUN. Watch for more info at this years races.
