The cy­cling sea­son is back with a bang at Mont-Tremblant, Que. this year, as a new road and mountain-bike fes­ti­val, Cross­roads Tremblant, is launch­ing

May 25-27.

In fact, the new fes­ti­val, an­chored by the sixth an­nual Gran Fondo Mont-Tremblant and Canada MTB Cup, is much more, now with a Sun­set ride, the women’s-only Pep­per­mint Bike­fest event, a time trial, a high-speed Cri­terium, big-air shows, a bike-in­dus­try expo and more.

“The aim of the event is to cel­e­brate all types of cy­cling and to show­case the Mont-Tremblant re­gion as the top cy­cling des­ti­na­tion it has be­come,” said Si­mon St-Ar­naud, founder of the fes­ti­val. “Ev­ery­one who rides a bike – road, mountain, fa­nat­ics, new­com­ers or recre­ational cy­clists, adults and chil­dren alike – will find some­thing to en­joy.”

The cen­ter­piece of the week­end for road­ies is the Gran Fondo Mont-Tremblant, which hosts close to 2,000 rid­ers each year. Cross­roads Tremblant will also feature the Que­bec/Canada Cup mountain-bike events, as well as guided trail tours and the op­por­tu­nity to test mountain e-bikes.

Top­ping off the fes­tiv­i­ties is a race to the sum­mit of Mont-Tremblant, one of

the best-known climbs on Strava, when a King and Queen of road and mountain will be named.
