Ok, so today I got a "I don't see any real problem with it, but I have sent the request out to the field office"

So, we're gonna go with it plan on running 'Powderface Trail' ... 34 km of Mountain Road west of Calgary on Friday afternoon, before the Motorcycle Park spectator stage.

I have updated the website with the schedules etc, should have the supplementary regs up late tonight (and in the mail tomorrow).

More info as it happens - website will be updated weekly or more.

ps. Oh and Northern Metalic Sales Cgy have come on as a sponsor again this year - with support for the Volunteer recognition activities!!!!:7

To be fair, the photo is really misleading.

Powderface is a regular stage for Kananaskis, and a former Rocky stage. (Shawn has a video of Tom McGeer in his legacy from on een to the other, some helicopter footage)

the only things that make the road impassible are a couple of steepish climbs that can be tough when they are icy.

most of it is 2 cars wide and smooth. it is a beautiful stage!

Just to be clear - the Powderface stages(s) are for National competitors only - Correct?
Regional starts at Blackfoot park - Correct?

(Just trying to plan days off)
