The sprint course is perfect for beginner mountain bikers, with little or moderate experience, but good aerobic endurance. It is also very good for the more experienced mountain biker, but who does not want a longer endurance test. Empire 47 has developed a dream trail network for an XTERRA, through multi-million dollar investments in the last 2 years alone. We offer you a perfectly balanced course. A mixture of challenges and "flow", 100% freshly built or mechanically restored trails. Climbs: You face the 2 longest climbs of 2 kilometers each at km 4 (Apex) and km 9 (Huron). You will love the Apex, the latest addition, a smooth singletrack type climb. The other climbs are very easy, being located in the Family or very short distances. A total of 350m of elevation gain over the 15.5 km. Descents: The Kamasutrail (km 6), a classic and a must at Empire 47; the Huron (km 11.5), a nice easy descent that brings us back to the transition zone before starting the run. Other points of interest: Since the 2021 edition, the transition zone has been moved to the lake side, on the grounds of the magnificent Manoir du Lac Delage. Several bridges will be erected on the 2022 route to allow for a more balanced route, signage and a very simple path for participants to follow, as well as a safe crossing of the bike and running routes in certain places. Refueling: It will be possible to refuel at a few places on the bike course. Supply distribution: KM 0: refueling in the transition zone KM 1: passage to the central mega ravito KM 7.5: access to extra supplies KM 14.5: access to extra supplies Difficulty level: For reference, the difficulty level of the XTERRA Québec sprint bike course is between that of Bromont, which is the most difficult, and that of Tremblant, which is the easiest. We recommend a level of skill initiated to mountain biking to choose to participate in this format. If you have no experience in mountain biking or in case of doubts about your level of endurance, we suggest starting with a participation in the discovery format. In short, a dream course for those who have a minimum of experience and like groomed trails and work for more “flow”. Note that we have course options in case of bad weather or poor trail conditions. The idea is to preserve the more fragile trails in rainy conditions, mainly the climbs, and offer you the best experience depending on the situation on the day of the event.

A course completely renewed this year. The first 2.5 km will be relatively easy, except for a few small technical passages, which will allow you to put your legs in place after the bike test. There will be some more technical sections between km 2.5 and 3.25 and a moderately technical descent with superb beautiful passages over about 500m). The final kilometer will be around the main site. Refueling: It will be possible to refuel at many places on the race course. Another of the big improvements this year will be the creation of a central and lively mega ravito. A focal point for the running and cycling routes as well as a meeting point near the main site, to see the participants pass regularly. A perfect distribution of supplies: Booster supply at KM 0: transition zone Ravito 1 at KM 1: passage to the central mega ravito Ravito 2 at KM 2.5: return from the Arène trail Ravito 3 at KM 4: passage to the central mega ravito Arrival ravito at KM 5: main site Level of difficulty: As a reference, the level of difficulty of the sprint course of the XTERRA Quebec 2022 will be less difficult than those of Bromont, Tremblant and Gaspesia. The fact remains that a few more technical sections scattered on the course will add a good challenge to the 5 km event with a total of 125m of elevation gain.
