We all know the mighty OVCX is just around the corner, but who wants to wait until that first race to find out your tubies aren’t very well glued? The Lionheart CX Race has a simple purpose: get started and have fun. Come join us as we hang out at Kingswood, race on a fast course, and support the Lionhearts Junior Racing team.
Saturday, September 10th.
True Beginners!: Check your carbon wheels and carbon frames at the door, this category is for those who haven’t raced previously and want to give a try. Riders racing this heat with carbon wheels, tubulars, and a $3k frame will be heckled endlessly for this day and the rest of the season.
C Men: You may be a 4, you may be a 3, but either way you know you aren’t ready for the full 45 minutes. There are no cash prizes in this heat, so certainly we won’t see any sandbagging.
USAC or NORBA needed for all categories. One-day and annual licenses will be available for purchase at registration. Annual licenses needed for Cat 3 Men, and all Masters 35+ and Masters 45. One-day licenses are $10 and are required for TRUE BEGINNER category.
Pre-registration is encouraged by going online to BikeReg.com by 10:00 AM on September 9th. Race Day Registration will be available the morning of the race beginning at 9:00am. Because race-day registration pulls valuable volunteer resources away from other important components of the race production - there will be an additional $5 day-of-registration fee (we encourage riders to pre-register!). Race-day registration is available up to 30 minutes prior to rider's event. There is no additional $5 day-of-registration fee for junior riders.
All categories will be staged on the starting line by costume rating and then order of registration. Costumes must be “real” to gain points in callups, and are at the judge’s discretion.
Kingswood Park - located at 4188 Irwin Simpson Road in Mason, OH. Google map for course location. The race is being held on a former golf course that has been vacant for a couple of years. It is currently used as a park by Deerfield Township. There will be port-o-lets on site, but no restrooms and no running water, so please plan accordingly. The ground is hard, fast, and fun.
