Thank you for your support - let’s see if we can beat that for 2018. Rumour has it the new t-shirts are gonna be dope!

With the opening of mountain bike tour companies like Boréale Explorers and the founding of the esteemed trail building project, Singletrack to Success, both instrumental in the growth of mountain biking for the area, we knew we wouldn’t have to wait long.
