Can you feel it...

Rocky Mountain Outlook July 3rdThat's right, can you feel it? Scanning over the list of 200 solo athletes that are going to be descending on Canmore in three weeks removes any misunderstanding that this is just a weekend event. It's not just a race, it's going to be a war.

These four athletes are good examples of why it's going to be a war; this won't be their first time competing aggressively and they will be showing up to win.

There's no mistaking this event for anything less that what it is... a war of wills, a war of attrition, a war of guts and fitness and smart racing. I suspect most of the 200 aren't showing up to attend, they will be looking for personal bests.

15 countries being represented. Some of the best in the 24hr endurance game. Everyone focused on one weekend.

I'm looking forward to it.

How does it get any better? Well throw in approx 1400 team riders, approx 5000 fans and you have a Woodstock of Mountain Bike racing on a very tough course.

Yeah, bring it!
