Riders from across Canada, the US and New Zealand have converged on Hardwood Hills for the 2nd stop on the Canada Cup circuit, and to gain valuable UCI points at the E1 ranked Gears Racing Canada Cup.
The field promises to be much more competitive with confirmed starters such as Seamus McGrath, Ricky Federau, Julian Hine, Max Plaxton (jr), Frederic Bussieres, and of course the top riders from Canada Cup #1 - Jesse Jakomait, Roddi Legga, Greg Reain, Mark Webster, Mike Garrigan and Andrew Watson.

This should make the battle for 1st and even top 10 an extremely exciting race to watch. The course has received very positive reviews.
