Courtesy W.O.W.

An amazing time was had on November 19th. Unlike the double digit temperatures of the past 3 years, there was just a touch of snow on the ground. It made it really easy to follow the tracks from the lead moto around the 40km course. Not too cold, but definitely winter. Just as it should be for a Winter W.O.W.

We had a record turnout too, with an additional 50 people registering event day alone. Lots of happy mountain bikers. Thanks to all who attended. There are also many, many more people who deserve thanks:

Epic Ride Bike Shop of Orangeville for sponsoring.
HBCC for helping out.
Kona for prizes.
Hammer Gel and ACS Distributing who keep us all going.
Canadian Cyclist for on-line registration.
Mansfield Outdoor Centre for hosting, the great chili feed apres-ride and the insulin-shock chocolate brownies!
Dufferin County for the use of their trails.
St. John Ambulance for their usual excellent help.
Daryl for running the feed station.
Big Dave for lead moto and endless trail work.
Medium Dave for leading the 20Km Tour.
Slightly smaller Medium Dave for help with score keeping.

Congratulations also to Bruce Passmore who walked away with the grand draw prize of a Kona Explosif frame and Marzocchi fork. The raffle for this prize raised over $400 for the Headwaters Health Care Centre of Orangeville. Special thanks to Epic Ride and the HBCC for taking care of this noble fundraising effort.

Results are below (Note - they don't include tour people, dnf or dns). There are photos posted now and video will be up soon. To view visit

Finally, thanks to everyone who made our year such a memorable and enjoyable one. The joy of riding a bicycle with good friends is something very special.
