October 28, 2011 Oro, ON) – The Hardwood Cross Race is part of the Ontario Cycling Associations (OCA) Southern Cup Cyclo-cross Series which is is Southern Ontario’s main cyclo–cross series.
Cyclo-Cross races take place in the autumn and winter and consists of many laps of a short course with a variety of terrain and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount.
The Hardwood course is a 3 km course which is a mix of grass, sand, hard-pack dirt, and double single track ski trails. There is 37 meters of climb each lap with one flat barrier and two run ups per lap. The course combines all of the elements of a great cyclo-cross course including a couple of off camber sections, plenty of turns as well as faster sections. It will test the skills of all levels of riders.
This sport has grown immensely in Ontario and is very spectator friendly as riders are passing spectating areas every 6-8 minutes.
