Also back is the 2nd annual “unofficial” Canadian National Gravel Championships on Saturday September 19th at McGregors Orchard in the Ottawa Valley township of McNab/Braeside. All categories, Elite, U23, Junior, & Masters are on the table for their own championship jerseys and podium (men/women). This year the event is on a 34km spectator friendly loop that includes stone-dust rail trail, double track rail trail, a summer maintained farm road, treed gravel, open gravel & a short 1km unmaintained section. A one lap “sport” non-championship route is available for anyone who just wants to go for a ride & be part of the event. The festivities will be enhanced by coverage via a live-stream feed available anywhere & broadcast at the event. Last years event was won by former National Road Champ Bruno Langlois & top Canadian cyclocross rider, Natasha Elliot.
