P:S Discounts for those attending multiple events! Adults can do both evens for $50 or $30 for youth.

Thanks for posting this info, particularly the location of the venues. I’m new to the province, so the “Gorge in Kentville” doesn’t tell me much.
When is the Enduro course marked and available for pre riding?
Any suggestion for family friendly accommodations?

Does the Burgular have parking? Wonder how packed it will be.

There is a small bit of parking at Burgher hill. Kentville will be packed all day since it’s Apple Blossom weekend. My advice would be to come early and make a big day out of it.

I will be there with bells on! Best riding in the province and the four track course looks SSSSSIIIICCKKK!

Hey Yanner, we plan to have the Enduro raked and prepped this weekend or early next week. I’d like to have it all marked before next weekend. I’ll post up here when the tape is up. Thanks for your interest in these events!

As for accommodations, you might try the Slumber Inn in New Minas http://www.slumberinn.ca or The Old orchard in in Greenwich http://www.oldorchardinn.com . They would be the largest hotels in the area. The Allens Motel right in Kentville http://www.allensmotel.ns.ca/allensmotel2.html

If camping is more you style you could try Sheerwood Forest in Coldbrook http://www.sherwoodforestcampingpark.com/Contactus.html or The South Mountain Park http://www.southmountainparkcampground.com or even Blomidon Provincial Park novascotiaparks.ca/parks/blomidon.asp

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Ryan

Speaking of Enduro…

Here is the tentative layout for this years race, basically the same as last season with the mian change being a plan to use a longer portion of the upper road segment on the first course. Lap 1 is shown in pink. Lap 2 in blue will remain basically the same as last season, thou with a few bits of trail upgrades here and there to keep things fresh!

Anyone else on here racing the Enduro on Sunday? Both courses are fassst.

I’m racing the four cross, and possibly the enduro. Will have to see what kind of shape i’m in on Sunday. This weekend is going to be a blast!

The course is super fast and fun! Come to the valley and have a time!

BOTH!
