Ontario Cup 7 – Provincial Championships – Aug 26, 2018

Kelso will indeed host the Provincial Championships for 2018.  We are ironing out some details as far as who is running the bulk of the event – but be sure it will not disappoint – and the drive home should be quick and easy!


Ontario Cup Overview

Superfly Racing is happy to again be at the helm of this series for 2018!

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 7-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 the spring (April 22nd this year!) and concludes with the Provincial Championships at the end of summer.  Events are typically 2 to 6 weeks apart and again include Canada Cups at both Horseshoe and Hardwood Hills.  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.

**PLEASE NOTE- THE CATEGORIES DEPICTED IN THE ABOVE VIDEO ARE NO LONGER ACCURATE FOR THE 2018 9:00AM YOUTH RACES.  IT’S JUST TOO FUNNY TO TAKE DOWN…

Last year’s New Format for the 9am Races Continues

Last year’s exciting new initiative had both success and failure, we are hoping to improve all kids racing in 2018!  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 O-cup #4 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!
