OBC Learn 2 Race Team Mid Season Report

OBC Learn 2 Race Team Mid Season Report

The team is having a great year with 105 Racers on our roster from 5 -15 years of age. The team continues to practice Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings and after a very wet and cold spring of riding and racing we are enjoying the warm and sunny weather. Racers have been competing in select events: Calabogie Road Classic, Dandelion Grand Prix, and Preston Street Criterium.

Our racers are also competing weekly in the OBC WITT, the Seenite Series B Crits and the bi-weekly Outaouais Cup Series. As our season enters the summer months we will continue to practice and race weekly and are looking forward to the season ending trip to the UCI Pro Races in Quebec City and Montreal. Once these end the Cyclocross season training and racing will begin.
