Cycle Solutions Ontario Cup DH #2 Presented By Lapierre Bikes Race Preview
Heights of Horseshoe is a storied location, once the location of the only Canada Cup DH race held in Ontario. This course has turned into a perennial favourite due to its unique loamy and sandy soil. Everyone has an opinion on which tires to use here, so what will you choose!
The Sirbikealot Racing course building crew led by Shane Joachim (Ben, Taylor, Calib, Kyle etc) has yielded an amazing new lower course for Horseshoe in 2009. This new section is full of rock gardens, pump sections, hip jumps and flat turns. This will no doubt put Horseshoe on the map as one of the most challenging course in the 2009 series.

Course Marshalls NEEDED!
As part of our initiative to make Ontario Cup racing as safe as possible SBR will be requiring more race course marshalls. Volunteers and paid positions available. We really need some help from the community here, so mom's, dad's, brothers and sisters if you can help please email me at
The job is quite simple and you still get to see you loved one riding! and a free lunch, I can go over the requirements sat or sun morning.
We can’t thank enough our amazing support staff, Lee Allen, Kris Somers (MC/DJ), Allan Hawley and his timing staff, First Aid Pro Patrol and staff (Kris) and ofcourse the amazing volunteers and sponsors:
