Gorge XC Post Race Report


For once we ended up having a dry race! It seems like forever ago the last time we raced in Kentville on fast dry trails. The course was the in the best shape I have ever seen it in, and the racers loved the course.

The times were smoking fast! The elite riders were smashing out lap times well under 20 minutes. I guess next year we're going to need to use a little longer track if it's going to be dry!

41 racers braved the course and they all left smiling. Big thanks to every on who helped put this even together, raced, cheered on the riders, we couldn't do it with out you.

We'll be back again for 2012 and have some big plans for the winter. So book next labour day weekend off, your going to want to spend it at the Gorge!

We should have more photos from the race up in the next few days but for now I'll leave you with some podium shots.
