**IMPORTANT INFO RE: 9:00AM YOUTH RACE

Due to difficulty creating a fun, not too hilly 9am youth race at the bottom, we are again running this start at 3:00pm on SATURDAY!  Pre-riding for the main races will shut down from 2:45 to 4pm to accommodate this youth race, at the top of the hill.  The carpet will be open, we encourage everyone to come up and encourage the kids on the 2.5km upper course!

**Keep in mind: many age categories can race at 9 OR 10am – so depending on the TIME you registered, you may be racing Saturday or Sunday – some kids are even going to race both!

The Course and Pre-Riding

The course will be pre-marked roughly for mid-June, and available to ride every day, weather permitting, up to race day. Please use the drop box during the week!  As with every year, expect a fun, dynamic course, just the right amount of climbing, technical, and of course, tremendous views of gorgeous Eagle Lake and the Haliburton Highlands!

Saturday night Banquet!

You wont wanna miss the annual Banquet at 6pm Saturday night!  Email  chris@sirsams.com or call 705-754-2298 to book dinner tickets. Cost is $22.50 each and includes tax.

Accommodations and Camping

If you really want to stay in style, check out Sir Sam’s Inn, just 500 meters from the ski hill! While there are cheaper accommodations nearby, this is the place to do it in style! Haliburton books up quickly – reserve a place soon! Silver Eagle Cottages books up early, as do most places in Haliburton. Consider renting a cottage for a long weekend for for the full week!

On-site camping is available at Sir Sam’s – $10/person per night gets you access to their washrooms, water. Just show up!

Ontario Cup 3, Sunday June 9, Kelso Conservation Area

Ontario’s oldest race venue is back for 2019!  The site of last year’s provincial championships, Kelso’s location within the GTA makes it a great early season venue, with ample time to pre-ride and close to home for the majority of our O-Cup regulars!

The Course

There’s no getting around it – you’re gonna climb the escarpment.  BUT, once up, you’ve got super fast, limestone laden singletrack, and for 2019, we’re gonna make sure to add a few more technical features than were seen in the 2018 Provincials course!  We’ll spare your legs two full climbs per lap, but have a few tricks up our sleeve to shake things up and give you a unique riding experience!

Pre-Riding

As a full-time venue, we are able to design the course early and get a map online – so you can dial in the course up to 2 weeks in advance!  Park fees apply for all pre-riding times!

Ontario Cup 2 – Sunday, May 26, Albion Hills

Albion is back with our fun, Enduro (Long Course) format!  Come race the Endur-O-Cup!

This popular spot on the circuit is also a great early season test of fitness!  Our 25km loop is a nice departure from the standard multi-loop format, and the longer race for some means more early season endurance, while the times are just right for most Sport divisions.  Such iconics sections as “Pinecone Express”, “Handle with Care” and – the dreaded “Green Monster” climb are always highlights on this great race course!

Pre-riding

Pre-riding will be available Friday, May 17 of the long weekend, and remain open every day to the race!  The course will be pre-marked with standard black on white arrows, and will be fully marked and taped for Friday, May 24.

Camping

Albion Hills has phenomenal camping, including over 60 fully serviced sites – bring the RV, and make it a weekend!  The most popular spot where most cyclists congregate is Poplar Circle, with Deer Run also a good location.  The comaraderie of camping nearby really makes this a unique stop on the Ontario Cup circuit.
