July 24th, 2010. Be there!
Besides our fantastic mountain biking, Sault Ste. Marie is a great place to visit!
Join us on July 24th, 2010 for the 3rd Annual 8 Hours of Superior Singletrack!
The 2010 edition of 8 Hours of Superior Singletrack is now behind us. The weather didn't cooperate for the middle part of the race, but the sun finally broke through to dry everyone off for the final laps. There were some great battles out on the course, and lots of smiles. It was another great year!
The highlight of the event was the amazing job done by all the fundraisers. Despite a smaller number of participants, riders managed to raise an incredible $10,534!
The top five fundraisers were as follows:
1. Jordy Catterick: $1,867
2. Joe Ruscio: $950
3. Mike Richer: $910
4. Richard Poirier: $720
5. Rhona Dunlop: $502
Of note is that Jordy's employer, Cross Country Automotive, has agreed to match
We'd like to especially thank the over 40 volunteers who helped us run another
smooth event, and the Sault Search and Rescue for being at the ready to deal
with any injuries (nothing to report).
And a huge thanks to our generous sponsors who allowed us to provide everyone
with some great gear and piles of prizes. It's safe to say that no one went home
without a prize.
