Extremely disappointed to have missed the first 2 races of the Off-road Ontario calendar, I was super excited to head to Cloyne, Ontario for Chloe’s Kingdom XC Race.
2021 is the second year this awesome event was held and this time it brought us TWO awesome days of racing!
Chloe’s Kingdom XC is organized by Quinn Davidson and his daughter Chloe around their vacation home property just outside Cloyne, roughly the same area made popular by the Rockhound Rally organized by RallyConnex. The 12km track snakes around a lake and a few hills, featuring a mix of moderately challenging and rocky single track interconnected by double-track where the pro racers can probably top out a lower-displacement bike. This is a great race on a solid course, put on by an awesome family and a team of volunteers.
Below is my account of the Saturday’s race, with a full POV of the first lap:
