Time Trial | Cross Country | Endurance



2014 SEASON

UPDATE: 2013 Ohio Power Series awards presentation will take place on July 19, after the Mama's Little Yella Time Trial.

This year we are pay'n respect to the original 3 venues that kick started the OPS in 2007; Medina, Manatoc and the mighty Vulture's Knob, a combined 43 years of single track development and racing history. With so many superb Ohio venues available the decision was focused on returning to our roots, our priorities; family, friends and fun. In January we hankered down with our friends at Oskar Blues Brewery and we decided to honor and celebrate the original 2007 race formula with a balanced blend of racing with post-race brews and good ole camaraderie.

The OHIO POWER SERIES
The Ohio Power Series was created with the intent to showcase different race disciplines and introduce a fun competitive culture that awards consistency across different racing styles... similar to what the Tour de France does with road racing...only the OPS is off road and in the dirt on good ole Ohio single track. For 2014 we invite you to explore the original OPS experience, as the OPS is as much about fun, shared experiences, community, fitness and making new friends as it is about competition and enjoying the great outdoors. Ohio mountain biking is growing and 331 is stoked to be a part of it.


Bistro on Main BOGO pints return for 2014
Podium finishers at each event will receive a Oskar Blues Pint glass. Take your well-earned pint into the Bistro on Main in Kent and enjoy a (bogo) buy-one-get-one free Oskar Blues brew and enjoy.

ABOUT 2014
For 2014 we are showcasing the original 2007 venues and the original racing recipe of one time trial, one cross county and one endurance race. To qualify for the series you must compete in all three events. Series awards will be awarded at our year end finale at the team challenge event on October 18 at Vulture's Knob.
