Fall Epic 8

Hardwood Hills, Barrie ON

 What better way to wrap up the Fall Epic 8 and the end of the MTB Race season than with a brewery tour at Barnstormer Brewery. 

What better way to wrap up the Fall Epic 8 and the end of the MTB Race season than with a brewery tour at Barnstormer Brewery. 

The Fall Epic 8, an 8-hour mountainbike relay, is one of the last races in the mountainbike race calendar, and the Lapdogs were out in force.  Members of the Pack spend the day racing one another around a fast, flowy 10km race circuit at Hardwood Hills Mountainbike Centre on a number of different teams.   Podiums were stood on and a good time was had by all, but more importantly there were several riders competing in their first mountainbike race ever.   It won’t be their last!
