A thoroughly satisfying test of your mental and physical strength, that you can share with the whole family. Sean and his amazing team of volunteers did an awesome job!!!
Being cheered on by fellow racers and taken aback by the beautiful scenery, made it my favourite race of the year. My teammate Soren Meeuwisse and I found ourselves making so many new friends along the way, who were just as excited as we were to see two twenty-year-old girls taking on this epic event. Crank the Shield will forever be Ontario’s most legendary race, knighting anyone that attempts it as a full-hearted mountain biker.
Crank has been on my list of must-do events for years. Finally the timing was right, and I was in the best shape of my life for Crank the Shield 2019. I’m glad I trained properly to fully enjoy the experience, and finish the days early enough to take in the awesome accommodations at both Stokely Creek and Searchmont. Finishing the event strong, and experiencing the unreal beauty of the Lake Superior region first hand, will have me coming back for more! I feel this event is an incredible value and am suggesting it to all my friends.
