    Epic 8 hour at Mansfield

    With weather looking a little rainy for Saturday I'm wondering if mud tires would be recommended. I know Mansfield drains well and really hoping to get away with regular dry tires.

    If your that concerned about your time and placing, no, mud will not be a factor.

    This race day was kind of funny. A buddy and myself rolled into the Dufferin Forest parking lot, not realizing beforehand that there was a race that day (until we saw the Mansfield area filled with tents and flags).

    We almost aborted and went elsewhere, not knowing where the race course would go. But, we were literally the only people in the entire forest. Not a single other car in the upper parking lot.

    And the dirt was magical that day.

    Will repeat again.

    definitely a magical place.
    the race was all kept down at the outdoor center property.
    separate from the forest up top.
    even had a couple of celebrities doing laps at the race.
    Adam van koeverden (one of canadas top rowers) and Emily Batty.
