Youth Racing (Age 6-9)


In 2012, USA Cycling made it possible for riders as young as 6 years old to obtain a race license.  Previously, riders had to have a racing age of 10 years old by December 31st to be able to obtain a racing license.  So what does this mean?  I will try to break it down for you.

Ohio State Master & Junior Road Championship

Queen City Wheels






The juniors and masters of Ohio will converge in the southwestern most corner of Ohio for the 2012 Road Race Championship.  The Harrison’s Tomb course made popular by the 2011 Regional Masters Championship and the 2012 Ohio Spring Race Series will be the course in use.  The main difference will be that the riders will start from the Cleves Time Trial start to give them 10 miles of flat to rolling terrain to get settled in before hitting the climb.  The 10-12 year old juniors will only have to do the 10.2 miles with no significant climbs.


Registration and results are being managed by BigDaveSports.

Winter MTB XC Series Race #1 RESCHEDULED… AGAIN!

Really?  Again?  Did somebody forget to order us a winter?  The forecast for this Sunday’s RESCHEDULED Winter MTB XC Series race is a high of 50 degrees.  We are actually closer to having dry trails than frozen trails, but neither is expected for this weekend.  Therefore, we are going to attempt another rescheduling of the first race of this series to Saturday, February 11, 2012 to make a double header weekend of it.  For those trying to keep track, here is the current list of dates for the series:

  • Saturday, February 11, 2012
  • Sunday, February 12, 2012
  • Sunday, February 26, 2012
The long term forecast for next weekend does look a little better than this weekend but still may not be cold enough.  Maybe the trail will dry up enough to race.  Hopefully, we can get these races in before the Spring “thaw”.

We have extended online series registration to Friday, February 3, 2012 at noon.

Winter MTB XC Series Race #1 RESCHEDULED

Due to the non-wintery winter weather we have been having, we have decided to reschedule the first installment of the Winter MTB XC Series from this Sunday, January 29th to next Sunday, February 5th.  We have had excessive amounts of rain with temperatures at or above freezing leaving the trails in less than adequate condition to prevent any damage to the trails.  The Cincinnati Off Road Alliance spends many volunteer hours building and maintaining these trails, and it is up to us to follow their guidelines and request for trail use as to not cause long term damage or permanent damage to the trails.


We scheduled these races in late January and February in anticipation of sub-freezing temperatures which would mean the trails would be frozen.  This is also why we have the start times for these races set at 8:00 am so that we could be done racing before the trails had any chance of thawing.  We did not expect to have such a mild winter and hope that things change soon.


We do hope to get all three races of the series in and have extended online series registration to Friday, February 3, 2012 at noon.
