The gravel season is wrapping up in Ontario. The autumn edition of the Hell of the North was last weekend and the conditions were ideal as it was wet, cold and windy, making it all the more hellish. Ashlin Barry broke away early with Connor Wilson to win his 4th consecutive HOTN. Ashlin rode a Mariposa with Rene Herse Bon Jon Pass Endurance tires. Thanks to Ed Veal of Real Deal Racing for another fun edition and to Amanda Sarah Cherish for the photos.
