Many have been waiting all winter for the start of the Cycle Solutions O-Cup DH Race Series Presented by Ventana and Foes. This coming weekend at Kelso Conservation area you will see the best racers in Ontario compete in Canada's largest DH and 4X race series for $15000 in prizes. Kelso's race course will feature a new lower section sure to bring back memories of Canada Cup style high speed adventures!
BMO (Bank of Montreal) has come on board again to contribute a $500 volunteer grant towards the race series, the money was secured by Andrea Zdriluk (mom of Jr Ex ripper Matt Zdriluk), this money will go towards newer and better safety equipment for the first aid stations.
Many thanks to those who showed up for the Kelso Build Day April 29th, this community building activity helped create new sections on the race course as well as clean up some of the MTB trails at Kelso.
For those of you who have never tried a DH race before this is the perfect course and with lots in attendance there are always people willing to give you a hand or advice if you need it, you can get everything you need on race day if you don't want to pre-register online.
Registration is open online until May 3rd at midnight so be sure to register at www.sirbikealotracing.com and save yourself some money, all licences must be purchased at www.ontariocycling.org or buy a 1-event licence at the race.
