First road O-Cup of the year is this Friday at Canadian Tire Motorsports park.
It’s an amazing course on the road racing circuit and a great safe environment to try out road racing.
You won’t need an expensive UCI license this year as they have a specific provincial race license which will help bring down costs.
Reg ends tomorrow night at midnight!

I’m soo stuck on the fence on this one. It’s a great course and super fun, but I’m pretty stoked for Hell Of The North 2 days later, so a double header seems like such a bad idea…
@mbuckaway that’s slightly tempting. The last straw for me was when I read the tech guide and saw the M3 start at like 8:30, and then mapped the drive to see it’s nearly 2 hours…
Probably still a no. I just registered a long gravel club ride for Good Friday and I’m thinking about routes, you know; “hey look, a trail!”
Go faster. Get into M2.
I feel your pain. I have to be at Mosport for 7:30am. Not sure why I signed up to officiate that race…although it will pay for the gas for the Ford Bronco I have for the weekend.
Kevin based on how your rode last Thursday you should mow through the M3 field.
Friday morning to Sunday gives lots of recovery and it’s a short race.
Just saw the facebook post for the race organizer, 38-ish in M3 right now. Ha ha, I’m starting to change my mind back to racing it again. Also weather looks decent.

Thanks for posting Chris. I though reg closed already. It’s nice to see reg staying open until just before the race.
@kevrideseverything looks like you’ll have appropriate weather for HOTN.
Sounds like a nice intro to the sport. I’m signing up tonight!
@kevrideseverything I agree with @ChrisP you should go, you are in the best form I have seen you in.
Well, looks like it’s a stage race for me. I wonder if I’m the only one actually in both stages?

Matthews going in Elite 4, and I registered in Master 3 (hahahaha gonna get whipped!)
Raced at Mosport many times before… in cars
. Will be an experience i’m told (and guessed), but excited to turn some laps nonetheless !

Going to be a tad breezy tomorrow.
Good luck to everyone racing tomorrow…have fun and challenge yourselves
Just reading the rules in the tech doc. Says I am required to wear a team jersey, I don’t have a wcc jersey… yet. Is that going to be a problem? Also what’s this about spare wheels!? I was planning on showing up and praying for no flats.
@jmaloney they’re usually not really picky about that stuff. I’d say wear a reasonable plain jersey and you’ll be fine. I mean if you were racing for say, midweek, and had Bateman’s kit on or something like that they might say something.
As far as spare wheels - yeah I typically don’t bring any - my base assumption is that if I flat my race is over.
Interestingly, I see the race organizer sent an email today saying they would allow a free lap for crashes or punctures. So I guess if you do have spare wheels, bring 'em along.
