One of the best mountain bike stage races out there!
The Quebec Singletrack Experience is one of the best mountain bike stage races out there! Most mountain bike stage races are heavy on the double track and leave you wanting more singletrack, but the QSE is different from the rest. True to its name, It's almost entirely incredible singletrack! The Vallée Bras du Nord- Shannahan Sector stage was one of the best days I've ever had on a bike. I've been racing mountain bikes all over the world for twenty years so that is saying A LOT! I've ridden in some really gorgeous places, and this stage tops most of them. Seriously. I am so excited to come back for the 2023 edition.
The morning after this fantastic event. Sitting having a cup of coffee and relaxing.
Thinking back on all the hard work you folks put into this event. You have a winner.
Keep up the great work. From start to finish, there has been no errors in organization that I have heard of or seen. Just wow.
The trails chosen were perfect and challenging. I will recommend this even to all that will listen. I stayed off site and enjoyed Québec city living with my wife. Not sure what else to say. But thanks to all the event volunteers.
Congratulations to the QSE team.
Everything here is perfectly groomed. The trails are amazing, and the vibe is simply magic. The QSE is the perfect summer camp for adult, in a unique and historical city!
BCBR was fantastic but for many reasons I preferred the QSE.
The QSE trails are as good as BCBR but the variety in Québec is unique. Because of the permanent base camp downtown Québec, there is no packing and unpacking every day. That simple and perfectly tight logistic transfers into huge time and money savings for the riders. The price is less than half of other races. The vibe in Québec is unbelievable both on and off the bike. To me, the opening night ride in Old Québec was a highlight.
Why am I coming back here every year?
First: quality of trails. Second: variety of trails. Third: amazing pricing for what is offered. On top of that, having a permanent base camp where we come back every day, gives you time to visit the oldest and only fortified city in America. It is a major advantage, compared to other races where you are moving every day. It leaves you no time to go around and visit.
