The Course

Some changes will occur the week leading up to the event, so for the most accurate course try and ride Thursday to Saturday of race weekend. As usual, there is a fee of approx. $10 on-site. The course will be preliminarily marked the weekend prior to the event.

The Horseshoe Canada Cup course has an old school feel! The singletrack is fast and fun and this course has plenty of options for skilled riders, it is also a very different type of course than you will see at Hardwood Hills the following weekend!  We have worked on making this year’s course faster, and flowier, with a few less climbs – don’t want to kill you before National Championships one week later!  We will also be striving for a 1:30 winning time for the Elite Men, and keep the times on the short side for most disciplines.

Ontario Cup Overview

Superfly Racing is happy to partner up with our friends at Multisport Canada for the bulk of 2019’s Ontario Cup races!

The Ontario Cup (O-Cup) is one of Canada’s premier XC Mountain Bike racing series. For riders who enjoy challenging courses and competing against riders from across the province, this race series is for you. The now 8-event series attracts both full-season racers, as well as riders who simply want to enjoy the challenge of individual races.

The O-Cup season kicks off in early May and concludes with the Provincial Championships at or around the end of summer.  Events are typically 2 to 6 weeks apart and again include Canada Cups at both Horseshoe and Hardwood Ski and Bike..  Only the best venues in the province are chosen to host O-Cups with each venue adding its own twist for riders. It might be a highly technical hilly course, a high speed flat course or a combination of the two. Whichever type of course it is, it will be fun and challenging to all abilities.

O-Cup riders are categorized based, first by age, then by ability. Riders earn upgrade points to upgrade to the next higher ability category. Ontario Cup points are awarded to all categories.



New Format for the 9am Races Continues

Last year’s exciting new initiative had both success and failure, we are hoping to further improve kids racing in 2019!  This year’s 9:00am timeslot features more user-friendly courses for youngsters and beginners.  In addition to being more spectator friendly, these courses will be less hilly, and feature more beginner friendly technical trails for the Squirt/Citizen levels.  *Keep in mind, for Sir Sam’s Provincial Championships, the 9:00am race happens Saturday at 3:00pm!

Who can Participate?

Anyone with a sense of adventure!  Riders who are at least 9 years of age (“Squirt” division) can participate in the O-Cup XC Series, and with the new, less hilly and technical 9:00am courses, it’s a perfect series to introduce youth to the exhilaration and comaraderie of racing!

What Type of Membership is Required?

In order to participate in an O-Cup you must be a racing member of the OCA.  However different categories have different restrictions.  There are, however, 1-day licenses available for all but Expert/Elite level categories.    Click Here for more general Racing information from the OCA, Insurance requirements, and more!


Registration is available individually on each event page.  Pre-registration closes prior to each event at Thursday at midnight.

Register here for the full series, save $ and time by signing up for all 8 events!  (Sorry, this has expired)
