    Hi all!

    I'm proud to invite everyone to CUMON at Québec 2004(Challenges
    Universels de MONocycle), happening at Québec city(Canada), on June
    25th-27th 2004.

    In conjunction with the Vélirium, holding again this year the mtb World
    Cup, the unicycling events are going to take place at the wonderful Mont
    Ste Anne site.

    We are organizing a Trials competition, a UMX on the 4-X track, long and
    high jumps competitions, and several demos through the Vélirium festival
    (which is going to be from June 19th to 27th).

    The Trials course is gonna be CRAZY!! So far we've collected two cars, a
    big tire, a stairset, a picnic table, a lot of skinny things, etc. But
    there is something for everyone, the beginners too!

    I will keep you all up to date soon for additionnal informations, such
    as cost, map to the site, places to stay, exact day of competitions,
    etc. The official web site is going to be available next week, including
    every details.

    CUMON, I know you can't forget about a weekend of unicycling fun! Don't
    miss it!

    I hope all of you can join us, so see you soon!

    Vincent

    Great!

    I'm glad to hear that, Owen!

    For the film, we do edit the footage, but I only have a VHS version. And
    it's pretty long. Do you know how I could upload it?

    Sounds excellent! I might be able to make it, need more details
    though....

    I really want to go to one of these MUni/Trials things, but they're
    always during the school year so I never can. And in the summer there
    are only freestyle events, or events in Japan. And I don't like
    freestyle, and Japan is far away.

    Mt Ste Anne? Have you thought about having an uphill race?


    You're welcome here!

    At first, we really wanted do hold a DownHill race, since the trails are
    technically awesome, and that's what we like riding anyways. But because
    of the mtb world cup, the organizer found some conflict with the two
    path, wherever we planned to have it. So we're forgetting about it.

    But an UpHill race! That's a good idea! There is the service road that
    goes all the way to the top. If I remember well, we rode that one in 30
    minutes or so on mtb. The only problem is to find enought riders to
    participate!!! For now, there's you Sofa and me!

    Also, I must remember that they hold a 12 hours of riding, the thursday
    I think. We're gonna participate Simon Thémens and me in a team (yeah,
    we're lazy...). They must hold it on a cross-country track, but I'm
    gonna get more informations on that one.

    So it sound like a tough weekend!

    Later

    Vincent

    I hadn't realised there was so many canadian riders in that area. I'm
    not sure but I think by dumb luck we (family) may be driving through
    there to Kingston around that time for my Grandmothers birthday. That
    would be amazing! I'll start talking to my parents.

    Keep us posted.

    Will we be able to do any lift rides up the mountain and ride any of the
    trails down during the event?.

    if so there is a good chance myself and maybe one or both the other
    memebrs of team thedan.com would make it up for cumon.

    I went boarding at mount saint anne a couple years ago and i am shur
    there is alot of good muning there as well, and i would love to have a
    day to check out some of the trails but i dont know if i can justify the
    long trip up if i will only be riding in the shadow of the mountian the
    whole trip and never getting the ride the lift up.

    Hi all!

    To answer unicyclejoe.

    Mont Ste Anne is a really cool mountain. Technical trails, a little
    north shore, steep dh. Unfortunatly, the best trail is the world cup
    one, and as you understand we sure can't ride that one during the bike
    races. I'm gonna ask them, but one thing is sure: we can ride all the
    week before the events, and last year we did ride other trails during
    the weekend.


    Bad news, they can't let us ride the 4-X track due to the festival's
    insurances.

    Instead, we'll have a ride in Quebec city, sunday the 27th. Free fun,
    you'll discorver beautiful places to ride and/or film! We can do muni or
    urban trials, depends on people's choice.

    Feel free to give suggestions for the events while it's still time.:)

    Vincent
