September 12/12 17:13 pm - 4th Edition of Crank The Shield This Weekend

Posted by Editoress on 09/12/12

World Cup Racers Kabush and Zandstra Take On All Challengers


Chico Racing is proud to host the 4th edition of Crank The Shield; Eastern Canada’s largest three day mountain bike stage race, September 14th to 16th in Haliburton County, Ontario.

Consisting of three days and over 220 kilometres of rugged singletrack, hydro cut, and cottage access roads, Crank The Shield is a once in a lifetime experience for riders of all abilities. Beginning and ending at the Haliburton Forest Centre, Crank will follow a lollipop format with riders spending both nights at the renowned Camp White Pine.

At White Pine riders will be treated to comfortable beds, warm showers and a spread of food capable of fueling the entire Tour de France! To cap off the weekend, Chico Racing will host the BBQ banquet of your dreams for riders to sit back and reminisce about the great times and new friendships formed at Crank 2012.

Known for attracting some of Canada’s top talent, this year will see Geoff Kabush (Scott-3Rox) do battle with teammate Derek Zandstra and a host of other top riders in their quest for the Crank The Shield victory. Hot off his eighth place at the Olympics in London, Kabush will be bringing his world class form into the event where anything can happen on the rugged Canadian Shield. Zandstra will surely be a force to reckon with after his 23rd at World Championships just one week ago, setting the stage for an epic battle. Not only for North America’s most talented racers, Crank The Shield 2012 will see 220 riders challenge themselves amongst the beauty that is Haliburton cottage country.
