Crossroads Tremblant, Eastern Canada's new road and mountain biking festival, is back for a second year after a highly successful inaugural event in 2018. From May 24th to 26th, 2019, a multitude of cycling events, competitions and activities will once again take over the Laurentian resort. New additions for kids, women and adventure seekers are set to grow the event into an even larger celebration in 2019.
Some 7,000 cycling enthusiasts from all disciplines gathered last spring for the ultimate kickoff to the season. The new event format offered a rare opportunity for roadies and mountain bikers to meet up and share their passion for the sport during an action-packed weekend.
"Tremblant's reputation as a prime cycling destination is growing for both road and mountain biking with its smooth roads and wide shoulders, trail network development, recreational bike paths and pump tracks for kids and families to enjoy," said Crossroads Tremblant organizer Simon St-Arnaud.
The Festival's flagship road ride, Gran Fondo Mont-Tremblant, has opened 2019 registration at granfondotremblant.ca. On Saturday, May 25, 2019, close to 2,000 road cyclists split in 12 different pelotons are expected take the challenge in their favourite distances to discover the breathtaking landscapes of the Upper Laurentians. A secure environment, riding in a group and camaraderie amongst cyclists are at the heart of this event.
A long-held tradition continues with Crossroads serving as host of the MTB Canada/Quebec Cup Series, now in its 25th year at Tremblant. Cross-country and downhill mountain bikers will be treated to redesigned and improved courses on the Mont-Tremblant resort mountain. An exhilarating road criterium, freestyle jump shows and the Crossroads skills park will provide entertainment for the whole community. Cyclists will also be able to shop for new gear and talk to experts from some of the biggest brands at the bike industry expo.
