When most people think of the Rockies, they picture beautiful snowcapped mountain peaks, long, sloping ski runs and the slice of powder beneath their snowboards.  With the ski and snowboard season stealing much of the Rockies’ glory, it’s easy to forget that these mountains are also home to some of the best mountain biking trails Alberta and Western Canada have to offer.  Now, if you’re like many of us bike enthusiasts this spring, you couldn’t wait for the days of sunshine to shine down and melt the last of the snow to make way for dirt runs and rugged mountain courses.  That’s right, it’s time to dust off the bike, strap on your helmet and hit the trails.
No cycling enthusiast can afford to miss the 17th annual 24 Hours of Adrenalin™ Race, taking place right here in Canmore.  For over 20 years, 24 Hours of Adrenalin has been the event of the summer for hardcore cyclists as well as those who are only just discovering their passion on two wheels.  First organized in 1994 with the intent of creating a weekend of family-friendly outdoor fun, physical challenges and gathering together like-minded people from all walks of life, the 24 Hours of Adrenalin has grown from a mere 100 participants to over 1,500 entrants each year and upwards of 5,000 spectators.
The race takes place on July 20th, 2013 in the heart of Kananaskis Country, at the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park.  Originally constructed to host the biathlon and cross-country events for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, the Canmore Nordic Centre has since played host to such prestigious mountain biking events as the Canada Cup and the International Cycling Union races, as well as being open to the public for recreational cycling.  A mere 4km from Canmore and an easy half hour drive from Calgary, it’s easy to find your way to the event.  On top of watching teams race to the finish, the 24 Hours of Adrenalin race also features great events within the event, such the 24 Minutes of Adrenalin race for children, live music, beer garden, fun contests, and a world-famous corn-roast.
