O Cup #3 at Mansfield (June 25-27)
(courtesy the organizer)
After a break of a few weeks, the Ontario Cup Series continues at Mansfield next weekend. The big news is that there are new courses for the cross country, the downhill and the dual slalom. Construction at both the Mansfield Ski Club and the Mansfield Outdoor Centre has given us the opportunity to improve all the courses.
The schedule for next weekend starts with Dual Slalom Qualifiers on Friday Night, along with XC and DH practice. Saturday has the chairlift open for the DH practice at 9am with racing at 1pm. The day continues with the DS at 4pm and the Canadian Ghost Bike Championships at 9pm (Bring yer own sacrificial bike!). Sunday is XC day, with the usual 9am, 11am and 2pm starts.
We are especially pleased with the new XC race course. It's a real challenge, with lots of beautiful singletrack. Can anyone defeat Paul Spadaccini? Paul has owned this course the past 2 years. Can he 3-peat? Don't forget that as usual for Mansfield the Elite Men's purse goes 10 deep. The course map has been posted on our web site.
Pre-registration closes today at 6pm, but if you need one last chance to get in at the pre-reg discount price, come to Sport Swap, 2045 Yonge St., between 6 and 9 pm and we'll be happy to take your registration. Pick up all of your racing needs at Sport Swap while you're there. For complete event info go to http://www.wowmtb.com.
