 Ya ontario is lame Wink they only produced the fastest rider in the country this year at nationals Kyle Sangers (Perform X) and the national series pro champion Rob Fraser (Primary Trek Poc), both on their way to worlds :-)

 Those who love to ride and race never complain. Those who sit on the sideline or “ride via the web”, are often the most critical. The Canadian DH scene is alive and well and it does not matter where you live or where you ride. If you take the top 10 elite males in the country, they may be separated by geography, but they are all close personal friends who support one another, and THAT is what makes the Canadian DH scene very special.

The East Coast Open is a great event and will only grow. It will continue to attract top racers who not only seek competition but seek a weekend of fun with their fellow riders. I applaud SirBikealot Racing for promoting this event and anyone else who steps up to host a race.

 Dudes. Freedom of Speech, just a comment. I toured Canada from coast to coast this summer, and Ontario has some sick riding areas, ie. Thunder Bay "ruled", and Horseshoe Resort has better riding than Blue. I love to ride, alot.

 Ahahaha Horse Shoe is most defenitaly not better then blue.......Blue used to be terrible due to insurance policys...Now they are rebuilding the trails bigger and better with more features and technical sections and its awesome.

 How can you say Blue has any good features. I rode there about 10 yrs ago, and it rocked, ie. Highway, Scorpion Thunder, Autobahn, the jump park with the 40 ft spine, and table lines, big drops for Ontario. But, this summer when I was there, no drops, no tables, no spine jump, no HIGHWAY, Blue blows......

 Was there all weekend. Didn't compete, but managed a few practice lines down the DH course yesterday PM, very fun fun fun run. Squeeker is already a fun course, but to have the option .....Please please Blue MTN staff if you catch up on here PLEASE keep the bowling alley line open...PLEASE!! hehehehe.....my vote is to roll out the bottom jumps but keep the line open, super fun.

Was watching the finals today just under the bridge at the bowling alley, great view, loved the spirit of the course today. NO RAIN, was a great event!

Was a Jozo's last night for the video premier, tough on the sound, but again, fun times, good to see the participation. XCourse was crazy, so much climbing, but I'm sure the racers enjoyed the course. Watched at the top of the exchange at Raisin/Grab Bag for a bit on Sat. while taking some fun runs, lots of spectators, good job!

Blue Mtn is a great spot for all ages and rider levels. Plus, there's no reason to go to Mt. St. Anne, they already have the bike festival as part of the World Cup event. Nothing wrong with spreading out the events nationally.

 Ontario isn't even remotely close to the east coast. Quebec would be more eastern, but NB does have a chair serviced DH park built by Gravity Logic...

 Canada is part of Eastern Canada. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Canada

 ontario is as east coast as it gets! Unless you're talking scotia nova or newfoundland. Or nb or pei. Or quebec. Really though anything right of manitoba is east coast enough to me.
