May 14/12 9:45 am - 3rd Annual Barrie Youth Race
Posted by Editoress on 05/14/12
The 3rd Annual Barrie Youth Cup will be hosted by the Barrie Cycling Club on Saturday, May 19th (9:30am-1pm); and is the first race of the Ontario Cycling Association's (OCA) “Ontario Youth Cup Road Series”. The Youth Series is specifically designed for kids aged 9-16 to experience the fun and excitement of road cycling within a safe and friendly environment. The stage race includes a road race and time trial with the combined points total determining the placing of a rider for a general classification result. Awards will go to the general classification winner.
The beautiful Oro-Medonte country side has proven to be a great setting for such a race, and there is no doubt that this year's race will be just as fun for the kids involved and an enjoyable day for the whole family. The race course is a 6km loop on new pavement that features hilly sections, wide open flat terrain and safe corners. There will also be a BBQ firing up some hot food for your pleasure and a Free Skills Clinic after each category race. These skills clinics are designed to test out the kids' cycling skills through a short course that provides a series of sharp turns, obstacles, and lines. Prizes will be given to the top 3 contestants who complete the course the fastest and without knocking over any of the obstacles.
Kids aged 9-16 of all cycling abilities and experience are encouraged to register for the 3rd Annual Barrie Youth Cup through the "Event Registration" section of the OCA website, and please remember that online registration closes on Thursday, May 17 at Midnight. Event organizers will be allowing day of registration at this year’s race, however there will be an added cost. If you are not yet a licenced member of the OCA, we encourage you to join the Barrie Cycling Club (or your local OCA club), or visit www.ontariocycling.org to purchase a membership. It's gearing up to be an entertaining day for the whole family!
