The road and gravel season came to end last weekend with the autumn edition of the Hell of the North, a long running gravel event northeast of Toronto. A huge thank you to Ed Veal & Real Deal Racing for organizing another great edition. Mariposa had a good day out: Ashlin won the event, while Hudson Lubbers and Michael finished in the top ten. They all rode Rene Herse Bon Jon Pass Endurance Tires, as the conditions were smooth, dry and fast. Ashlin and Michael had theirs mounted on Princeton Carbonworks, Grit wheels, and both rode their Mariposa all-road bikes with Shimano Dura Ace equipment. Photography by Ivan Rupes
