Saskatchewan Riders Post up

Just like the title says if you are from or ride in SK post up let us know wher you are from where you ride, and who is your shop. I'll start off.

From Melfort, ride in and around the Melfort Wappiti Valley region, also spend allot of time around Lake Charron. Just recently gave my business to the guys a NE sports, I know they'll take car of me.

I am from Lloydminster. I do some road riding and some trail riding across the border at Vermillion. It is not very challenging though and there is not much for good riding around here. West of Edmonton and in Edmonton itself is pretty good. I try to make it out to the mountains for a week or 2 in the summer. I do not know if I will make it this summer though.

A good shop is better than gold, nothing better than wrecking on a Sunday taking your bike in on a Monday morning, and picking it up at lunch and blowing off work for an afternoon : )

You're welcome.

Early rumors indicate XC racing to return to BP for 2007 courtesy of the M.J. boys! Can't wait, I've dreamt of racing XC out there again for years. Lots of climbing for us little guys to crush the "big power" riders on. XC8 obviously will be back at BP again for 2007, mid September likely.

A Sask Cup race. Mid Sept will be good for XC8, cooler, and saves the club a bunch of dough as we won't have to pay the full park fees.

I'll have to check out the Buffalo Pound area.

One Area I like to ride in is Eb's Ski trails up in the Nisbet Forest, North of Duck lake.
