Posted by Editoress on 09/27/11
The Hillbilly Hustle returns this Sunday, October 2nd, the fifth year for this popular event that offers one of the best Cross courses on the circuit.
Situated on the site of Ontario Provincial Mountain Bike Championships in Duntroon, Ontario, just south of Collingwood, the Hillbilly Hustle is the only Ontario Cross race to feature an Over-Under bridge and several other unique features. Electronic timing with lap times, M1/Elite Primes and great prizes for all categories provided by The Epic Ride, HB Cycling Club, Smart Athlete Training, Digica and Sound Solutions.
The big competition will be for the Hillbilly Jacket (Elite Men) and Hillbilly Skirt (Elite Women). The Jacket has been won by Andrew Watson (Norco) every year since the race's inception but with a stacked Elite field, including confirmed challengers Peter Glassford (Trek Canada) and Jared Stafford (Norco) the race will be very tight. The women's Skirt is currently held by Leigh Hobson (The Hub), but 2009 winner Amanda Sin (3 Rox). the reining Provincial MTB champ and a local will be looking to reclaim it ! Come and watch or race this great fall event !
