Before the festivities, we will innovate on Saturday evening with the first ever relay format 'cross race. This event will be held on a short course where riders will be in teams of two. Riders will perform two laps each (one lap at a time) for a total of 4 laps.
On Sunday, at 11:00 am, a traditional cross race will bring the best riders from the region to battle it out over a 45 minutes event around St-Anselme's beautiful and technical course.
