HBCC Six Shooter June 16, 2013
HBCC and Mountainview Racing Development
Collaborate on 6- and 9-hour Relay Events
The HBCC and Mountainview Racing Development have collaborated to organize the “Georgian Bay MTB Challenge Series”. Each club will host a relay event at their home course with the goal of having an event that is fun and challenging for all levels of riders, in an atmosphere that is relaxed and festive.
Both events will include a free tee-shirt for all participants that pre-register, medals for top finishers, and medals for overall series finishers. Categories include solo, tag team, 4-person for both events, and specific to the 9-hour event, a 5 – 10 person team.
HBCC event organizer Scott Holmes says, “HBCC has organized cyclocross and mountain bike events in the past and we felt it was time to utilize the facilities at Highlands Nordic in a longer event. This, in coordination with Thomas Wood’s (of Mountainview Racing Development) 9-hour race, we think is ideal.” Thomas Wood has been running his 9-hour relay event for a number of years in Midland. Thomas Wood states, “By adding in the HBCC Six Shooter event we will be making available two of the finest mountain bike trail systems on private property not readily accessible to weekend warriors, and combining them into a series serves to solidify the vision for a fun day on the bikes that both events share.”
