Ontario Cup #7

Horseshoe Resort

Ontario Cup #7

Event Description

Following last years’ success as host to the Ontario Cup Provincial Championships, Horseshoe Resort welcomes the Ontario Cup back to the same great venue and even more course improvements this season!  While the Provincials will remain physically challenging, some of the steep climbs will be re-worked and courses for all races will be more established. The amazing accommodations and incredible spectating, food services and all the amenities you come to expect at a world class resort finish off another spectacular season of riding!

 

Registration Details

Event day registrations are available on site Saturday and Sunday. (You must have cash or cheque for late/Day of entries Saturday/Sunday – sorry, no VISA.) Online registration typically closes at midnight on the Wednesday prior to race weekend. Only ONE Ontario Cup at a time (the next one) will be available for registration online AFTER the full series registration is closed previous to Ontario Cup #1.  If we opened every event for the season, we have too many people forgetting which events for which they registered, providing many registration problems!  Another great reason to take advantage of the Full Series registration savings!

We will be able to update your OCA license number automatically once you receive it.

Note: NO refunds on race entries

 

 

  • The Course and Pre-Riding

    The Course

    While many Elite riders and some Sport riders considered Horseshoe 2013 amongst the best courses they’ve ever ridden, the challenge of a fresh course and mountainous topography were a bit much for some racers. The 10:00am and 11:45am races will feature softened climbs and more established singletrack, while all races will contain a variety of Hard / Easy options, and that spectacular 1.3km downhill to cap off each lap!  Be ready for a truly amazing course for 2014!

     

    Pre-Riding

    Stay tuned for pre-ride updates as each event approaches! 

    Pre-ride fees will apply.
