Ontario Cup Overview
Superfly Racing is running 2 of the 4 Ontario Cup events for 2021!The ever-changing climate now sees a 2-event weekend – mass start, non Ontario Cup events on Saturday, with points awarded at Sunday’s individual pursuit. Details on the mass start to follow. 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 (typically) 6 – 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 early May and concludes with the Provincial Championships at or around the end of summer. Events are typically 2 to 6 weeks apart and we try out best to space things out. 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 YOUTH RACES. IT’S JUST TOO FUNNY TO TAKE DOWN… AND – Tyler is now the Canada Cup leader for Senior Men – he’s come a long way from his Mickey Mouse days!! 9am youth only format continues (likely individual pursuit for 2021)! 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?The OCA is allowing all categories to race on a citizen permit for 2021!! This is a huge bonus to new and old participants alike! The OCA has done a great job helping to foster events for 2021!
