Categories:

Unlimited – The longest, most technically challenging course, lung busting climbs and technical downhills that keep even seasoned veterans on their toes.

Super Sport – Not quite as technical as Unlimited, but enough climbing and fast-double track to get a serious workout.

Sport – mostly singletrack, without anything too outrageous, this is a fun chance to test your skills, and work on that buttery-smooth flow.

Just for Fun – Low key, flat trails, and our shortest race. Perfect for kids and new riders to get used to riding singletrack!

Year End Festivities:

A barbeque held after the last race of the season is both the awards ceremony for the race series, as well as the wrap-up party for Mountainview MTB. Come out for some inexpensive ‘que, a chance at some draw prizes, and a few laughs with friends. Prizes will be awarded for the series champions.

University Cup Race #1 @ Albion Hills
Sep 9 all-day

The U-Cup is a fun grass-roots cross-country mountain bike race series for college and university students. Alumni are welcome but results will not be counted toward overall individual or team U-Cup championship points.

The Ontario University Cup Race Series is in its 18th year of existence. The series was created because mountain bike racing did not exist at the university or college level in Ontario, Quebec, or anywhere else in Canada. Many Ontario universities and colleges (As well as our friend’s at McGill University in Montreal) now have recognized mountain bike clubs and teams. The series is organized by the Ontario University Mountain Bike Race Council (OUMRC) which is composed of university, college students and alumni.

If you know mountain bikers who are attending other universities or colleges have them find out if their school has a University Cup (OUMRC) rep, if not, why not get involved yourself? See our contact page for more info.

We have fun! New riders are MORE than welcome!!
