The mountain bike scene in Manitoba is slowly growing bigger, and better, more events are popping up all around this flat province, and it's about time an event came along like this. The event will consist of a pump-track race and dirt jump competition. Our main goal is to push the sport in Manitoba and get the province recognized for biking rather than the large amount of mosquitoes. Get Pumped For The Pump Challenge!
This is the first event of its kind in Manitoba and we are hoping for a turnout of about 60 riders. The Pump Challenge is held in Steinbach, Manitoba, which is less than an hour away from Winnipeg. Anyone who wants to enter can, there are no age limitations at all. We are hoping to get lots of people coming out from both Steinbach and the surrounding area, everyone is welcome. Also we will have a sound system set up for announcements and to listen to some awesome music. Prizes will be given out to the winners of the events. This is our first year holding this event and we are hoping to get a good turnout. We hope to have this event continue into the future as well. More About the Event: Date
