So…lets kick it off with Stage 1: Kananaskis!
Date: July 26th, 2014
Overview: Kick off your morning with a short drive to the start line in West Bragg Creek SW of Calgary. Ride classic Kananaskis Country trails built and maintained by groups like the Moose Mountain Bike Trail Society, Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association and the Calgary Mountain Bike Alliance.
Combining Kananaskis Country’s classic front-range singletrack with newer purpose-built mountain bike singletrack, Stage 1 will start outside of the hamlet of Bragg Creek at the West Bragg Creek trailhead.
Highlights include descents on Ridgeback, Race of Spades and Strange Brew with some challenging climbs and great views mixed in. Race of Spades will be the first of four timed descents for the week.
All routes are subject to change at any time to allow for permit approval, quality control and safety of the riders.
