Out of the Maritimes and into La Belle Provence, the Road Hockey Rumble motorhome sets its heading to the most contentious hot spot in all of Canadian history, Québec City! It was here in 1759 where the English triumphed over the French in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, leading to the British rule of New France. But after 248 years of animosity (and since the English beat the French a year ago in Season 1), it’s time for our inaugural RHR rematch: Calum’s Francophones versus Mark’s Anglophones! For the Winner, bragging rights and beer… for the Loser, ‘The RHR Casualty of War!’ This episode features guest appearances by hockey pros Éric Bélanger and Eric Chouinard.

The punishment for Quebec City was a paintballer’s wet dream. A half naked Mark stood in front of a firing squad of trigger happy paintballers whose only goal was to make him hurt.

“This was the only time in my life where I had tears of blood expelling from my chest and trickling down my stomach. Now I can officially check ‘bloody torso crying’ off my lifelong ‘to do’ list.” – Mark
