October 01, 2011 – Sirbikealot Racing, owned and operated by Peter Appleton, is stepping down as the organizer of the Ontario Cycling Association’s downhill mountain bike O-Cup series. After many years as the sole organizer for the series Peter has decided to move on. We thank Peter for all his hard work in developing the series.
With the departure of Sirbikealot racing an exciting opportunity has been created for an individual or a group to come forward and organize a single race or perhaps as the series organizer. We encourage anyone with a serious interest to contact the OCA with an expression of interest that includes a short bio, their vision for a series or a stand alone event and what venue they would feature. All responses will be confidential. Please respond by October 15, 2011
At the same time we look forward to feedback from the DH community on how to change up the series, improvements they would like or what they like about it now. We are also very interested in developing race officials with roots in the DH Community.
Expressions of interest, feedback or an interest in officiating should be sent to DH@ontariocycling.net
The OCA is committed to Downhill racing and we look forward to receiving feedback from our members and working with potential organizers and officials to create an exciting race series for 2012 and beyond.
