331 Promotions - 2013 OHIO RACE SCHEDULE



Host venues and dates announced. Ohio Power Series expands with new courses in Dayton and Strongsville.

Every year we challenge ourselves to raise the bar and create a route and mix of races more challenging than the last. That's the great thing about planning a race in Ohio, with the hard work of many organizations there is an increasing amount of trails from which we can choose. From rolling hills or rocky trails to fast, flat and flowing, Ohio mountain biking is growing. For 2013 we introduce a new layered concept, the "mini-series": the OPS mini-short track, OPS mini-XC and OPS mini-time trial series, lets call it a series within the series. More details to follow in the next couple of weeks. We are also happy to announce a new partnership with Five Rivers Metro parks and MVMBA as the OPS joins forces with the Midwest Outdoor Experience in Dayton. Join over 14,000 like minded outdoor enthusiast's October 4-5 for the 2 day festival which includes over 100 exhibitors including the bike village, action sport area, climbing wall, youth adventure zone, freestyle kayak, slack lining, beer garden and more.

New sport open class: this is a class with little restrictions, aimed at those who stand atop the sport podium but are unable to race the expert distance. Or expert women who don't have enough competitors at the start line. Or expert racers who took the jump due to mandatory move-up but find their training schedules don't align. All ages, all genders, one open class. Stay tuned for details.

For 2013 we were overwhelmed with 23 race requests and we somehow whittled down to the offering presented below. We are also working a special event to happen in the fall. And what's up with the mystery race...well, it was a late addition to the schedule, the date has been reserved and we are close to making an announcement. Many have requested a larger event weekend, with that said we introduce the Vulture's Knob weekend - Stage 1 short track, stage 2 cross country, stage 13 short track - stage 14 cross country and toss in some zany VK bonus races on those weekends such as the muddy paws dog race and woo town single speed classic and youth races...we hope the request has been satisfied.

We hope your as excited as we are to begin 2013. We can't thank you enough for your support, enthusiastic passion and ideas to improve the series every year. 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.
