hey just a heads up to anyone in manitoba interested in doing an endurance mtb. "race". going down on June 9th and 10th, it the first annual Red ASSiniboine 300(miles).
"The route is approximately 480 km (approx. 300 miles) of mainly gravel and singletrack thru southwestern Manitoba. This is prairie country so as you'd expect there is a lot of flat, often windy, terrain, but the route also goes thru the Pembina Valley which offers some significant elevation change - about 325 ft of climbing for each of 7 passes thru the valley, or over 2000 feet in total."
Its going to be a great time ,for anyone interested the link has all the information you'd need. Cap is 50 riders, but its probably not set in stone.
