Canada Cup Course Open for Pre-Ride

The Canada Cup/Ontario Cup Course is preliminarily marked and open for pre-riding! Course is NOW OPEN for Pre-Ride only during regular Hardwood Ski & Bike hours and trail fees apply.

The Course this year is a big change with a throwback to more of an old school course. The course will pass the feedzone twice per lap and use some favorites like BoneShaker, Deena’s JoyRide, MBX, but also adds in some rarely used Radical trails in the far end of the system. There is also a Youth specific course for the 8:30 am start.
See  https://pulseracing.ca/events/canada-cup/ for updated course maps, schedule and registration. Start times can be different from Ontario Cup. Be sure to carefully check the schedule for race times, and your appropriate course.
