On May 14th Ontario Cycling & Performance Driven Events kicked off the Road Cycling Season with the first race in the Ontario Cup Road Race Series. Some great early season racing took place and riders, coaches, spectators & sponsors were lucky enough to enjoy a day of sunshine!
The event brought out riders from around the province and gave riders the opportunity to race a brand-new course which featured a 12km loop of smooth county and rural roads. Despite the winds that continued to pick up as the day progressed, made for some competitive racing across all categories.
Ontario Cycling would like to thank the sponsors and vendors who were involved in supporting the event. Thank you to Sram, Clif Bar, Ontario by Bike, The Biking Lawyer, Hoj, Canadian Sport Massage Therapists Association. Thank you as well to Zehrs Bradford for providing post-race nutrition to all riders. Finally, a big shout out to Tunes on Wheels, our Road Ontario Cup official neutral mechanics, for being available throughout the day to provide mechanical support to all riders who may have needed it.
Overall, the Henderson Classic Road Race was a great start to our Road Race Series. We want to acknowledge that this event would not have been possible without the support & partnership of Greg Rawson from Performance Driven Events. Ontario Cycling invites all riders, spectators and cycling enthusiasts to join us at the second Ontario Cup, taking place in Baltimore Ontario on June 10th.
