Hello, it seems at this point everything is canceled except maybe Gore so its hard to get a feel for the current state of the race scene in NS.
When I first purchased my bike (2008) I immediately started attending the XC and Endurance races (despite lack of skill and fitness) and enjoyed competing. Was just wondering if outside of covid if there still are quite a few races usually in NS and NB during a normal summer.
I can’t remember all the races I did (but I think I did the majority of the calendar), some that stood out were my first Vic Park in the rain, 8 hours of Gore, 5 hour Hillsborough (Funds park area), Upper Clements (the only one I was able to find results for still while googling), another XC race in the valley somewhere (remember driving up a long gravel road up a mountain and there being a radio station car there from the station The Hawk I think which I believe is a valley station… maybe that was around Kentville), a race in PEI that was at some sort of sports park and another XC race in the rain in NB that started in the parking lot of a school or some other large brick building.
I have been approaching my return to riding with the intention of still planning to race so have been focused on XC related gear however while out riding it seems the majority of people I see are out on Enduro style bikes that compared to my little 90mm travel fork HT, look like they are made for jumping out of an airplane. Since I haven’t encountered any racy types on the trails and the calendars have been wiped clean I was curious if there still was a healthy race scene in the region.
