For the first time in over a decade, the Canada Cup — a prestigious cycling event– is returning to Nova Scotia. Held in Kentville from August 2nd to the 5th, the Canada Cup is a premiere mountain bike race that challenges amateur riders, but also serves as a venue for Canada’s elite mountain bike riders to earn internationally recognized racing points through the UCI –cycling’s world wide racing authority.


With great local representation by Elite Nova Scotian mountain bike riders the Canada Cup already has competitors registered from Quebec, PEI, California, even as far away as Japan.


In addition to racing, the Town of Kentville along with supporting organizations like Trailflow and Bicycle Nova Scotia will be hosting skill training events, guided rides and concerts in a fun, festive atmosphere.
