Wet conditions could not dampen the fun of the 2016 Rockwood Challenge. Under dark skies racers from around the province gathered for the annual event in Saint John. This event was hosted by the Saint John Cycling Club, and The Bike Guyz @ Alternatives, with support from Bike Works, the SJCC Trail Miners, Real Food Connections Saint John, . Without these awesome organizations, events around the province wouldn’t happen.
The Adrenaline Festival at the Sugarloaf Provincial Park was the hot spot this past weekend as Velo NB crowned provincial champions in XCO and DH. The festival brought racers from across the province, Nova Scotia and Quebec to the northern community for a two day event to celebrate mountain biking.
Grey sky and rain didn’t dampen the mood of racers in Hillsborough, as the 2016 Velo NB Mountain Bike season kicked off at the White Rock Recreation Area. The Codiac Cycling Trails Club organized the event at the infamous Albert County trail network. Many racers were looking forward to the event, one that returned to the calendar after a long hiatus.
