This preview of the fourth edition of Crank the Shield is totally fitting of the mood of the race, and is Singletrack.com’s favorite we’ve seen yet.
This year’s course is a lollipop format with riders spending Night 1 and Night 2 at Camp White Pine. Catering will include a pastry chef from France, so no complaints. The race caters a ribs and chicken BBQ for all participants the final day with local microbrew.
Each day, riders will spend more than 30% of their day on singletrack and rarely see any pavement
Check out the 2010 edition.
