I’m looking for some teammates for the relay race on Saturday. Looking for one or two folks to join me.

Some updates;

a) Trails are in fantastic shape!
b) The course for Saturdays relay is very, very fun!
c) Goodies are starting to roll in for the welcome kits. Stickers, chain lube, more stickers, coupons from local business, race info and more all tucked in to a sweet little bag from Dakine.
d) This weekends weather is looking good. The trail is down right dusty right now so the little bit of rain were getting tomorrow will be perfect.
e) Having a permeant skills park is rad.
f) The Town of Kentville dropped of six new bike racks to The Gorge for us to help keep your sweet rides happy when their at rest.
g) I love bikes!

The XC race is a go for today (Sunday), but all events have been cancelled for Monday.
