The sixth stop in the Island Cup XC Series went off very well with about 60 riders attending the 13Km race. Organizer and Owner of Ozzie`s Cycle, Lee Blais said, ``I think the race went really well. We usually get a few more people, but I guess because it was Mother`s Day not as many people wanted to come out. Everyone still had a great time though!``

The course began with a mass start just before a large hill. It then went down the Log Train Trail, and up into some of the other riding trails in the area. Depending on their category (Beginner, Intermediate, or Expert) the riders could do 13Km, 23Km, or 36Km loops. Many riders commented their favourite part of the course was the downhill type section.
