Sweet Julien, I’ll be there.
Bring all your folks from Ottawa. We need people!
I wish I could go but i’m traveling back from Nova Scotia and will only be able to reach Montreal by noon on sunday at the earliest.
I want to go there! But I’m leaving for Cedar Point(Ohio) on the 9:( I hope it’s gonna be fun for all of you.
I would love to come for Saturday and Sunday. I’ll have to ask my parents
Can you(everyone there) make a video or take some pictures. It would be cool to see how cool it’s gonna be.
If you can’t ask them if you can come in Ottawa then, we could have a 2 person, maybe three, Trials/street/flatland competition…

YAY! I’ll be there for friday and saturday! I would enter in the street comp but I can only do 180 unispins and crankflips:( anyway, I’ll be “trial-ing” :D:D:D:D

Less than two weeks!
For saturday morning is it going to cost anything to enter the skatepark and observe the competition. I will not participate only watch.
6 DAYS FROM NOW!!! I’m so happy:) And now there a ride at 2PM on friday at the Olympique Stadium.
you have to pay only if you use the trials and street setups. If you just come to watch you dont have to pay.
I highly suggest you to compete because there will be trial lines for all levels of riders and also, it is so much fun ! If you want to become better, you will eventually need to ride so come and try !
I’ll be there If only I could stay for sunday too, but I can’t because I’m leaving for Cedar Point(ohio)!!
That sounds great, Julien!
I haven’t been on the forums lately so I just found out about this event this morning. I’ll have to see if I can pull some strings and find a way to Montreal from Nova Scotia for this.
We need more event like this in Canada:) Is there a place where I can see pictures of the TAZ? for both trials and street area?
Im gonna be so rusty for this, I havnt unicycled in almost three weeks
Only 4 days left!!! I’m ready to ride now! Exept that my both legs hurts because of DH riding:(
at least you can ride, i still have to find myself an ankle brace before i can do some serious riding again !
