Kelso DH O-Cup #1: May 3-4
Well the birds are singing, the snow has melted (finally!) and its time to get dirty! As with every O-Cup DH season we kick it off at Kelso in Milton, Ontario. This time honoured venue is close to the GTA and always has the biggest crowds. Racers are excited to see friends, compare their new bikes and best of all, see who's been training hard in the off season.
This years course has a couple new treats with an new rock garden at the top and addition of a new rock garden at the bottom. But you aren't getting off that easy, the famed "rock drop" is back and should provide for a challenging course from top to bottom.
Don't forget to pre-register at: www.ontariocycling.org. Online registration closes Friday May 2nd at noon. PLEASE read this following Notice
