Crank The Shield 2012 Trail Previews
We've received a lot of requests for course maps and elevation profiles for each stage of Crank The Shield 2012. However, due to a heavy reliance on private lands and our desire to make Crank a true adventure, we've decided not to post course maps until last minute before the event.
However, course designer Sean Ruppel has decided to share the trails in Haliburton Forest that will be featured in CTS 2012. This trail network is accesible to the riding public for a very reasonable fee. Additionally, Sir Sam's Ski and Bike is also open for riders to preview even more of the awesome trails featued in CTS 2012. Check out the Haliburton Forest trails on Sean's map below and head to www.sirsams.com.

"Thanks for a great experience. All the effort you all put in showed in the fact that everything ran so smooth. The bar has been set pretty high for other Mtb Stage Races. I am sure as word gets out there will be line ups to sign on for next year."Jim Brogden - Participant
"Everything was absolutely perfect and spot on from the rider's perspective! From the bags and drop bags to the cabins, food, course markings, volunteers, course, etc - well it was one of the best ever."Laurie Woodbury - Participant
