The 2023 provincial championships in Mountain Bike racing are returning to Milton in August.

The title events in mountain biking and mountain biking cross-country will return to Kelso Conservation Area to cap off the end of a summer of racing.

“Kelso Conservation Area provides an ideal framework for mountain bike events. Its unique terrain and spectacular scenery can challenge and inspire riders of all skill levels,” said a spokesperson for the event.

“The park’s trails offer a variety of terrains, including rocky and technical singletrack, fast and flowy descents, and steep and punchy climbs. The area’s diverse landscape also features some of the most stunning vistas in the region, including views of the Niagara Escarpment and the shimmering Kelso Lake.”

Kelso has an extensive network of trails that is open to the public season-long and a wide range of trails for every ability level.

Characterized by its steep climb up the escarpment/ski slopes during the winter and its dusty conditions, it was a war of attrition when provincial championships were last held at Kelso in 2018.

The event is being held Sunday, August 27. For more information or to register, visit the event website.
