This exciting annual mountain bike event involves relay teams or solo riders competing to ride as many laps as possible in a 24 hour period. This year’s event takes place on July 23 2011 at the Canmore Nordic Centre, where you can see western Canada’s top mountain bike riders race against some of the best in the world.
The most gruelling way to compete in this race is as a solo rider, which involves up to 24 hours of riding. There are also 2, 4 or 5 person teams who would split the riding between them, meaning that each member of a 2 person team would ride for up to 12 hours, members of a 4 person team could expect to ride for up to 6 hours and each member of a 5 person team would be riding for 4 to 5 hours. The 2 and 4 person teams can be any combination of men and women, and within the 5 person category there are co-ed, female only, and age related sub-categories.
It is also possible to enter a corporate team of 6 to 10 people which could allow some team members to ride for just 1.5 hours, thus opening the event to all skill levels.
24 Hours of Adrenalin has been a big hit in Canmore in recent years, and it’s well worth coming as a spectator to view the race and experience the buzz around town. As the race takes place in the middle of summer, Canmore hotels are likely to be busy during this time, so early reservations are recommended.
