Harbin Park Short Track MTB Race

Since many people in the area are “new” to MTB Racing through USA Cycling, here is an article I wrote in February 2012 explaining the licensing involved with USAC-MTB Events.

Race Course

The course is a good variety of double tracks and single tracks which are all rideable.  The opening section is a wide open rolling field that turns you into the first double track section.  These two sections should determine the pecking order before dumping the riders into the single section consisting of twists, turns and rolling terrain.  Upon exiting the single track, you’ll enter the second double track section which is very rough.  The initial part is slightly downhill before giving your a couple of small climbs.  The final section of the course brings you back into open fields where you will be faced with the wall up to the finish.  Luckily, we are being nice and setting it up as an Alp d’Huez climb instead of straight up to the finish line.  This will help you save your lungs for the next 5 attempts you may need to make around the course.


For those who are familiar with the trails at Harbin Park, here is the course that we plan to use:

From the sled hill shelter, head east.  Head north on the double track and turn (left) into the start of the Orange Trail single track.  When the single track dumps you into the open field near the pavilion, make the 180 left onto the other double track section to return to the sled hill.  Continue across the small field and across the dip through the trees before starting up the climb.  Instead of making everyone go straight up the hill, we will most likely have you crisscross your way up to keep the racing close.  (Remember, you will have to do that climb multiple times during your 20/30 minute race.)  Once at the top, turn left and repeat until you are told you are done.

Here is a link to the MapMyRide of the course.  We will also work on putting together a PDF of the regular trail map outlining the actually race course we will use.

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.

The Newmark Center Cycling Classic

International Pro Bike Shop


This is a great low-key event on a simple, 2 turn, 1-mile flat loop in an office park.  If you are looking to get your feet wet in crit racing or just want to fine tune your skills early in the season, this race is a must do.




Since online registration is not being offered for this event, we at BigDaveSports have put together this standard USA Cycling Release Form that allows you to enter all of your information before printing it.  This will allow you to have a crisp and legible waiver to hand to them at registration on race day.  Here is how it works:

  1. Open the PDF file,
  2. Select the Race Category you are entering,
  3. Fill in the remaining information by typing it in the appropriate boxes,
  4. Print it,
  5. Sign it,
  6. Hand it to registration with your money.
If you don’t want to go through all of that, then just fill out a blank waiver by hand at the race while all of your competition is busy warming up.
