February 4, 2009 – The 2009 Cycle Solutions O-Cup DH, Super D and 4X Series Presented by Commencal has been released. 2009 is sure to be a ripper with two huge new introductions: Canada’s first Super D race series and The Ontario/Quebec Challenge. Read on for my details.
1) Canada’s first Super D race series. This timed event is a perfect mix of XC and DH racing, a little up and lots of down. It’s a great race for XC and DH competitors or for trail riders who love a flow filled ride. Come out and ride with your friends in the amateur class or press for the fastest time of the day in the open class. Medals and prizing for every Super D race, plus overall series points.
2) The Ontario/Quebec Challenge: a single event Interprovincial Championship Trophy will be awarded to the Province that wins the most DH categories (cadet, junior sport, senior expert etc), points will be awarded from 1st place (25pts) to 22nd place (1pt). The province with the most points in each category will win that category, the Province with the most categories wins the Championship Trophy! This is also a regular series points race for both provinces, so everyone will be grabbing points for their provincial overall series championship too!
