Race 3 in the Cannondale Ontario Fat Bike Series p/b 45NRTH
It is all new! We are excited to work with the gang at Devil’s Glen to bring you a new race with a new vibe. Starting and finishing by the chalet the course will wind down a pleasant valley before tackling a long gradual climb up to the top of the hill. Some parts will be familiar if you did the Eager Beaver 100…
The registration will be inside the chalet along with post race food and podiuming. (yeah, it’s a verb, deal with it) We have over $1000 in draw prizes lined up so stick around, you might win some sweet fat bike schwag!
The Devil’s Glen Country Club is the host for Registration and Start/Finish and provides the most picturesque setting we have ever raced in. Devil’s Glen is nestled within the Niagara Escarpment on nearly 600 acres of spectacular countryside, just 1 ½ hours north of Toronto and 20 minutes south of Collingwood. It has something for everyone in your family; from beginner slopes to some of the most challenging runs in Ontario, including an advanced Terrain Park. And we are going to ride bikes there!
Where: 1793 County Road 124 Glen Huron, ON L0M 1L0
When: February 11, 2018. Registration is 10-11 am. Race starts at High Noon!
Late registration pricing starts February 7! Don’t wait until the last minute!!! (online registration closes 7pm February 9, but there will be day-of registration, cash only)
How Long: The course is approximately 10k long. Long course will be 4 laps, short course will be 2 laps. Course map shortly.
Permitted Tire Sizes: 3.5″ or wider (Fat bikes and 27+ bikes). If the trails are free of snow, we may have a Skinny-Cat category* (though Skinny-Cat riders do not gain series points). There is a strict NO WHINING policy regarding tire width. We have to keep all the groomers happy or they will roll over us with their equipment.
Who is it for: Everyone who likes to ride bikes and wants to get out to a fun event at a new location. Don’t have a fat bike? Well guess what, there are lots of places to buy a saweeeeeet new Fat Caad. There are also shops who will rent one to you for the day.
Food: There will be our usual finish chili and a licensed ski chalet to keep you well fed after the race.
*Final decision on availability of the Skinny-Cat category to be made the week of the race, based on conditions and forecast.
