The Entire Team will be heading East to the Canadian National championships at Hardwood Hills just outside Barrie Ontario next week. They will be lining up alongside the best in Canada for a chance at the National Championship title on Saturday July 20th. Hardwood is one of the longest standing venues on the Canadian circuit and will produce tight and exciting races.
Emily Unterberger is back to racing
The team is really excited to have Emily Unterberger back for her first mtb event since sustaining a concussion in May at the second Canada Cup. Emily U’s training has been going well and she will get to put her fitness to the test this weekend at Climbduro in Bragg Creek, Alberta. The ClimbDuro
is an endurance event with two timed climbs. The event crosses several different surface types and athletes can choose to race a road, cross or mountain bike. Emily is looking forward to testing out the new race format and her fitness before Nationals.
Horseshoe Canada Cup
Holden Jones will also be racing this weekend. He has travelled to Ontario early to line up at the Horseshoe Canada Cup
near Hardwood Hills. This race will be an excellent opportunity for Holden to gain more points and elite race experience. He is currently sitting in 2nd overall in the series, 11 points behind the lead.
