Block May 13 off on your calendar!
This Spring CLASSIC is the “O-G” epic 8 and is a must-do for spring riding enthusiasts! Mansfield is again the backdrop for this perrenial kick-off to Ontario’s summer relay events, with North America’s largest 24 Hour and two more Epic 8 events hot on it’s heels.
Mansfield is the perfect host, with a great location, sandy soils and awesome on-site cabin rentals and camping options! While we say goodbye to Mansfield’s longtime owner, we are excited to work with the new staff and take advantage of team Van-Go’s new trail additions!
With a yearly crowd of over 600 passionate riders, a team atmosphere and a truly fun vibe, the Epic 8 is both a great place to get your 24 hour team together for a training day, and a the perfect place for new riders looking for friendly competition in a relaxed atmosphere!
We are truly thankful to Johnny Y. and his crew for the amazing work they have put into Mansfield’s trail system! While Superfly will be there to help with the spring cleanup, we won’t have to put in the work we used to to re-open every year. The trails will be dialed and flowier than ever – and don’t worry, we won’t make you ascend Mt. Mansfield more than once per lap! At 10km, the target time for fast riders is around 30 minutes, with the course being one of the fastest and flowiest in Ontario!
Mansfield boasts 17 on-site cabins, each with up to 4 beds and ample space for your team or family. These go FAST – book yours ASAP by emailing email@example.com Cabins are $100/cabin to be paid in cash on-site.
Cabins include access to group washrooms/showers and come with mattresses but no bedding.
Mansfield boasts unlimited on-site camping. Whether you have a fancy trailer or just a tent, camping is $10/person per night also cash on-site. No need to book or pre-order a site! Just show up and follow the signs to the group camping area! Pay at registration or wait until one of our staff come knocking!
What’s new for 2023?!
