Pearl Izumi Ontario High School Mountain Bike Championships - Individual and Team Relay Races
Hardwood Ski and Bike and Pearl Izumi welcome riders from all over Ontario back for the 15th annual Ontario High School Mountain Bike Championships.
We look forward providing a fun and challenging day for all ages and levels of riders. Each cyclist may compete as an individual in the morning races and again as a school relay team in the afternoon.
All school and riders are encouraged to bring other riding friends and athletes to fulfill "team" points for their school awards.
Elementary School riders are also welcome to compete in a dedicated category.
School with 4 or more riders in an age category you qualify as a "team". While any number of riders may enter for your school, the first 4 riders who finish will be counted for your school team standing.
Award Banners to first place teams in each of the six High School categories, and a Banner to the Overall Combined Championships High School.
Medals to the Top 10 in each high school race and Top 5 in each elementary school race.
A Team Relay event composed of 3 men and 1 women of any age categories. Each relay leg will be of 5 to 7 minutes, on a double track open course. This is meant as a fun and exciting event to show your school spirit and performance.
All pre-registered riders will be eligible for draw prizes. Be sure to check your number plate at registration to see if you have won a draw prize!
All participants in the Championships must be currently enrolled full time in an Ontario elementary or secondary school. Regional qualifying meets are not required. Because this is not an OFSAA sanctioned event it is not mandatory to have a teacher accompany a team, but it is recommended that a coach or parent attend.
Elementary riders min. age 10 yrs.
