The Ontario Cup (OCup) Road Series has finally arrived and will kick into high gear on May 14th. For the 2023 OCup Road Series, Ontario Cycling is partnering with Performance Driven Events for three OCups and the Provincial Championships. Riders will be racing on two new courses in Bradford and Lansdowne and be back to race fan-favorite Northumberland again for 2023.
Registration is opening soon. Make sure to take advantage of the series registration package, which provides a discounted rate for all three events and is available until Tuesday, May 9th, 2023.
Just 25 minutes off Highway 400/401, the new Henderson Classic will feature a 12 km loop of smooth county and rural roads with rolling hills. “This year’s series opener will be a fantastic course for new riders and beginners to get off-screen and race outside. It is well balanced with a reasonable lap distance and approximately 90 meters of elevation for each lap,” said Greg Rawson, Owner of Performance Driven Events. The race will start from the newly built Henderson Memorial Park, just off of Line 9, north/west of Bradford West Gwillimbury. A significant safety component that will be part of the Ontario Cup series will be the support of the South Simcoe Police, which will ensure riders are protected while on the racecourse.
