Well, the weather guessers got us again. (more…)
Once again, it looks like Mother Nature is going to screw up our racing plans again. At least this time we have some warning. There is a significant snow storm moving through the Ohio Valley Sunday into Monday. Sunday will start with cold temperatures and rain. This will change over to misery and suffering for anyone who may be trying to race their bike. By the afternoon, the roads will most likely be unsafe for traveling.
For everyone’s safety, we feel it is best to make the call now to allow everyone to make other plans and get a good training ride in on Saturday when the weather is expected to be nice. We are still working on a rescheduled reschedule date and hope to have one nailed down early in the work week.
As 2012 wraps up on the calendar, the highly anticipated schedule for 2013 is now available. Keep in mind that some dates or venues may change without notice due to unforeseen circumstances, but this is the schedule we plan to run with.

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.
It is with great regret that we must announce the cancellation of this year’s Midwest Regional Masters Championship. We had high hopes for a big and better set of events this year, but unfortunately time is not on our side. After a very busy Winter and Spring, we are behind on the planning process with very little relief in sight. With less than 2 months until the schedule dates of July 21st and 22nd, there are still many things that need to be, most of which should have been completed months ago. We apologize for any heartache and disappointment this has caused as we know many were looking forward to this year’s events. We, at BigDaveSports strive to put on quality events, and if we can’t make that happen, we’d rather not waste everyone’s time and/or disappoint anyone with a less than satisfactory racing experience.
David “BigDave” Riemenschneider
BigDaveSports is teaming with girl bike love to do a story on women’s racing in the Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana region, specifically the Greater Cincinnati area. We are looking for one or two women to talk about the past, present and future of women’s racing in this area as well as how to improve it. These women should be planning to race several road races and crits through the Spring and Summer INCLUDING the new Women’s & Juniors 12k race that has just been added to this year’s Ault Park Series presented by Queen City Wheels. In the 25+ year history of the Ault Park Series, the women always had to race against the men. After years of requests, the club is going to give it a chance this year.
Some of the topics you can expect to give your opinion on:
- Prize money
- Race distances
- Perception of and from promoters
- Participation from women
- How to get more women involved
- How to grow women’s racing
