What are you doing on Easter long weekend?
What about a little trip to the Burnt Bridge International Classic in Shawnigan Lake (Victoria) BC. This is the season opener of the National calendar. If you are counting your UCI points - this is the place to add to your total since Burnt Bridge is an international E event. If you are looking for BC Cup points - Burnt Bridge is the place to go, as it is the first BC Cup of the season. If you are racing in the pee-wee, minime, cadet and junior category - this Island Cup Series event is waiting for you. You're not a cyclist but a runner? Burnt Bridge has a cross-country race for you. The program - cross-country mountain biking and running race, downhill (best run out of two), kids' race and Easter egg hunt. Check our website at http://www.pro-competition.com for additional information, registration form, start time, map, etc. So what are you doing on Easter long weekend?

The RAGE web page is under construction! The site will enable mountain bikers near Quebec City to subscribe to a distribution list to announce group rides. The groups will be separated as Sport (riders who usually race), Weekend warrior (riders who do not race but are in excellent shape) and Social (riders who are beginners or would enjoy riding while meeting new people).
This site will be available in the next few months. Everybody is welcome. Take a look at our Boston RAGE web site for a preview: http://www.rageMTB.com/
