CROSSROADS TREMBLANT ROAD AND MTB FESTIVAL
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
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.
