The Great Albion Enduro!

WE ARE BACK FOR 2017!

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 2017 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!

second wedge

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!!

  • The Course and Pre-Riding

    This course has designers Sean Ruppel and Corey Brioschi VERY excited – with the park closed to other riders for the full day – we are able to run many of these great trails IN REVERSE!!  While some ride really well, others not so much, so we’ll have an awesome mix, lots of taped off 2-way sections, and will do a nice 7km of mixed trail in Palgrave, – this will be unlike anything, anybody, has ever seen!  The short road between both destinations makes this a true off-road Enduro, with just enough flats for a break and a chance to look at the beautiful scenery!  While we will be posting a rough course map – we are keeping the trail flow a secret – because, hey, there aren’t enough secrets anymore, and, we don’t want to encourage riding the opposite direction on the one-way trails at Albion. Palgraves trails have been carefully selected, with a liaise with local land users, to ensure minimal crossings and interactions with other users.

    Afterparty, Petting Zoo and Ferris Wheels

    Ok, while there may be a very old Shitzu to pet, there is no petting zoo or ferris wheel, but yes, there is an afterparty.  We encourage everyone to camp out at Albion, and stick around for post race BBQ, a free Beer to those 19+ and more available for sale!  The chalet will stay open well into the evening with full food services,  and maybe, just maybe, someone will bring a karaoke machine.

    PRE-RIDING

    No.  There isn’t.  It’s just that simple.  Don’t try too hard to predict the course – just ride Albion and Palgrave an whole bunch, and you’ll have a good idea!  The Albion portion wont be marked until Friday, September 16.
