Video: Fishing with Kabush and Zandstra Crank the Shield preview

This preview of the fourth edition of Crank the Shield is totally fitting of the mood of the race, and is Singletrack.com’s favorite we’ve seen yet.

This year’s course is a lollipop format with riders spending Night 1 and Night 2 at Camp White Pine. Catering will include a pastry chef from France, so no complaints. The race caters a ribs and chicken BBQ for all participants the final day with local microbrew.

Each day, riders will spend more than 30% of their day on singletrack and rarely see any pavement

Check out the 2010 edition.
