Ontario Cup #1 Dagmar Ski Resort
The mountain bike racing season kicks off with a beautiful weekend of racing at one of Ontario's classic venues.The x-country course won't be a walk in the park, but you can expect a fast hammer-fest typical of the classic season-openers.
Saturday is fun-filled with short track racing and pre-riding with all the x-country events taking place on Sunday (event day registration is available).
Sugoi Under 17 Program Encouraging Racing
