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.
The second new race course this season will be the Lansdowne Road Race. The 14-kilometre lolly-pop-style course is located just 30 minutes east of Kingston, ON and features only 20m elevation with a 4 km out and back section from the start/finish at the Thousand Islands Elementary School. “Same as the first OCup, the Lansdowne Road Race is a great race for beginners and new riders who are interested in racing as this is by far the flattest road race of the year,” Rawson continues. This road race will also be a perfect opportunity for all sprinters in the province to find the provincial’s, unofficial green jersey owner.
