Crank the Shield breaks the 2-year cycle with a return in 2015!
On the heels of an unusually cold 3-day September Crank the Shield, organizer Superfly Racing is taking a fresh look at Ontario’s ONLY Mountain Bike stage race. Though the amenities with the 3-day Crank were unparalleled, the often cold September days and need for participants to take time off work – not to mention the costs – have made that format increasingly difficult.
A new 2-Day format!!
Looking forward to 2015, Superfly is re-working the concept, and is re-introducing CRANK as a MUCH more affordable, 2-day event set for the weekend of August 15/16. Warm days, less bugs, the BEST trails and 2/3 the CRANK for half the price are what riders can expect for CRANK 2015.
This version will feature modified versions of days 1 and 3, using the best of what Haliburton Forest and Sir Sam’s Ski and Bike have to offer! The lone overnight stay features camping for the rugged at heart, or you can drop off an RV, stay at regal Sir Sam’s INN or one of the nearby cottages! Options abound, and the latter options mean your family can join in on the fun!
As always, great food and fully supported rides await, and Long and short course options mean now, more than ever, there really is something for EVERYONE at Crank the Shield!!
