2015 Road and ITT Provincial Championships
The Ontario Cycling Association is proud to announce that the registration for the 2015 ITT and Road Provincial Championships is now open!
Due to extenuating circumstances, the OCA has taken over the organizing role behind these two events. We wanted to ensure that our membership had a chance to close out the 2015 road racing season with two events like no other championships held in the past.
The OCA staff all agree, both of these venues will challenge our members like never before. Even the fittest of athletes, will have to dig deep if they want the Provincial Champion jersey and medal.
We are pleased to offer the registration for all three events at a discounted price which will increase after August 12th. For those riders planning to race in the ITT and Road Race, there is an additional 15% discount that will be taken off during the registration process through CCN Bikes.
Don’t want to race in the championships category but still want to experience the ride? There will be a Sportif category for the ITT and a Gran Fondo category for the Road Race which will be open to members and non members alike so invite your friends!
