    Quebec Cup XC Races

    Hey all,

    I plan on racing a couple of the Quebec Cup races for kicks this summer (new terrain, different rider field, great party scene in montreal etc..) So I am curious as to where to find the listing of upcoming races.

    In other words, where can i find the Quebec equivalent of chicoracing.com?


    Help is appreciated!

    Here is the latest listing from the Quebec federation... I will probably do a few ones as well, I live in Montreal and this will be my first year racing though...

    Do Tremblant!

    Highly recommend the Tremblant Quebec/Canada Cup. Insanely technical course with a full-on World Cup vibe. You'll feel like a star racing up through the village at the bottom of the hill! Then you'll feel like a hack as the vastly superior Frenchies blow past you and show you how to ride rocky wet singletrack descents on a hardtail with semi slick tires. Good times!

    Can't really speak for the rest of the series (they're really spread out and I only make it to the few that are near Ottawa) but Tremblant's always a learning experience.

    Exactly the experience i was going for. For some reason, I dont think my superb Albion skills will translate to much there.

    I remember the first time the ontario cup circuit came to the ottawa area in the late 90s and they had to hold the race at Camp Fortune (which is actually in Chelsea, Quebec) and most of the hardwood/albion racers were just so pulverized by not only the quebec-cup regulars, but hell, EVERY local rider. Their comments were like "you guys ride this course for your fun series?!" or "this is insane, I signed up for sport not world cup pro..."

    I like getting pulverized, but Quebec is too far for me.

    Ontario riders need to spend less time looking at their HRMs and more time scaring the sh!t out of themselves.

    Quit drinking beer? No. The legal drinking age is lower, more loosely enforced, and you can even buy beer at the convenience store.

    besides, you are in ontario, not quebec, right? they can defend themselves - you dont need to do that on their behalf... i want to know if anyone from Quebec did the gator pit skinny like our brave brethren did...

    i doubt it...

    they can shave all they want, but when they do the skinny, then we'll talk....

    Um, I am from Ontario, although I do smoke a half pack a day which some might say is a kinda French thing to do.

    And some might say I am pretty fast.......

    Right, I'm in Ontario. I spent about 6 weeks in Quebec a few summers ago, so i have a small idea of what it is like there.

    My buddy Don is probably the finest extensive urban trail network in the province, maybe even the country! I have known him since I was 12, and he pretty much taught me everything I know about mountain biking. In the summertime we hang out almost every day. A lot of Ontario Cup racers don't like Don; they think that he is scary, or doesn't have enough "flow", whatever that means. They'd rather drive an hour to visit tamer friends who don't know how to party like Don does. But I don't have a car, and he lives right around the corner from me, so we are BFFs.

    If you ever want to come meet him, gimme a shout and I would be glad to show you around his place. We could hang with him for 3 or 4 hours and I guarantee he will keep you on your toes the whole time; he's quite the prankster! When we're done maybe we could have a beer with him or something.

    So, that's about the best I can explain Don. If he sounds like an interesting guy now, just wait! He really must be experienced in person.

    well this make me even more confident *insert sarcasm here* to meet this Don guy...

    hell going through a broken leg playing soccer was horrible enough... all my crashes at Durham and Albion and I have been lucky...

    maybe I'll wait to meet this MOFO another time... like next year.... yeah.... unless someone wants to give me a tour, hold my hand...

    any takers? Oooogles?

    I met up with Don today, and he was many things but ridable wasn't one of them.

    BTW sorry for the huge thread jack everybody. But I just got a new laptop 6 months after cooking my Dell, so I am quite anxious to talk some smack on forums. It is such a productive use of time.
