Take one of Southern Ontario’s most popular riding centres, switch directions on half the trails, add some unique unmarked trails, AND add a chunk of pure singletrack in the Palgrave tract and several kms of rail trail, and what do you get? The GREAT Albion Enduro, of course!
You know an event is meant to be when everyone you mention it to says they’ve been dreaming of such an event for years! Superfly Racing has, for years, pictured a long, fun, amalgamation of these nearby riding centers, and 2016 is THE year! With long running fall events, Crank the Shield and Paul’s Dirty Enduro, both on hiatus, September has a huge need for an epic event, and Superfly Racing in conjunction with the boys at CHRONOS/GIRO are working together to keep the EPIC in September!

We are excited to have this bike friendly brewery, The Second Wedge, on tap for the day! Enjoy one free beer after the event, then grab a few more for a great price and enjoy the evening, the band, and all the fun!! Check them out at www.thesecondwedge.ca – stop in their amazing brewery after a ride in Durham Forest!!!
With a shorter, Albion-only course of 25km, AND a 40km loop including portions of Palgrave, there is something for everyone! Add a 2-lap, 80+ km race, and you have a truly epic, 3.5 – 7 hour romp through some of the funnest – yes, funnest, trails in the GTA!
See a rough Course Map below. Note: we are keeping much of the trail direction a secret!! at 40kms, who has time to pre-ride anyways!!!
BONUS! Our friends at 3Rox Racing will be on hand with their annual fall sale! great prices on bikes and schwag from Canada’s only Pro trade team!!
Get involved and sponsor this awesome event!
We are still looking for both title and more presenting sponsors for this event, but have already garnered support from the Chronos/GIRO team, Staran Cycles, and as always, Havy and the team from NORCO, and 3ROX racing Albion Hills and the TRCA are really excited about this event – as are the litany of riders that call Albion/Palgrave home.
Thanks to our sponsors!
