The Ohio Interscholastic Racing League is an interscholastic high school mountain bike race series that is coordinated by 331 Racing and sanctioned by USA Cycling. The 5-race series is open to ANY high school in Ohio.
Our mission is to grow the sport of cycling while promoting active and healthy lifestyles for high school students. We want students to enjoy the outdoors and beautiful Ohio trails. At the same time, we hope to encourage more students to race bicycles.
The 331 Racing High School Mountain Bike Series is held under USA Cycling permit and is open to any high school student in the State of Ohio. Each event has a J.V. and Varsity race with both girls and boys categories. Most races held primarily on single-track trails, and most races are multiple-lap events to provide a spectator-friendly experience. Racers do NOT need to be on a school team to participate nor do racers need to have any race experience. Each race venue offers racers a challenging multiple-lap event on incredible trails.
The Ohio Interscholastic Ohio High School Series is a great way to learn about mountain bike racing in a supportive environment. If you like to mountain bike and are even considering racing, this is your chance. Sign up for a race! You will have a blast!
High school mountain biking is one of the fastest growing interscholastic sports in the country. High school leagues have been successfully operating in California for a number of years, and new leagues have sprung up in other states, such as Michigan, Texas, Colorado, Utah and Virginia as well.
331 Racing has been conducting youth mountain bike training over the summer for kids ages 4-13 since 2011. This year we have expanded the youth skills training to include high school age, 14-18 kids. This group will focus on beginning mountain skills as well as more advanced skills and cycling endurance, including cycling training programs and group rides.
331 Racing has been promoting cycling events since 2000 and we are excited to be able to now offer a high school race series for students athletes.
