Race 5 in the 45NRTH Ontario Fat Bike Series p/b Cycle Solutions
Head north to Bracebridge to the home trails of Fat-Bikes Canada, our event host. The race will start with a 2.5km ITT on somewhat technical trails, in which riders will go out individually at 30-second intervals. Then, after warming up and grabbing a bite, everyone will head out at High Noon for a mass-start 20k or 40k race.
After the race is over, stick around for the post-race food, killer draw prizes and there are even some rooms available at the Quality Inn right next to the trails!
