There are many more participants in the O-Cup series on the Eastern than typically inhabit this forum. Recommend reloading and post instead on the Eastern forum.Trev said:I know this has to do with the eastern canada forum, but I figured since it's a race specific question, I'd chuck it on here.
Since you've already been racing for 2 years including last year, the easiest way to get a ballpark is to look at results from the races you did last year, and compare your lap times (IF the course layout was the same for both categories) and then add a bit more on to your time due to the extra distance of the Sport events. If you were not racing any events last year that broke down into Beginner and Sport categories, then cross reference some of the results from your events with the O-Cup results available on the OCA web site, and find a few names in common between the two instead.Trev said:I am going to be entering sport level for the O-cups this upcoming season. I'm just curious as to how competitive this level is and what people thought about this level who have done these races in the past. I am trying to get an idea of where I could potentially plce within the sport class (although I will really never know until the races are over)
I have been racing xc for 2 years, but last year was the first year that I actually did a decent amount of races and wanted to do well.
The top end of Sport class races is usually very quick, as these are the riders who are likely moving through soon to upgrade to Expert anyhow.
Sometimes these estimates don't quite play out as well as expected on race day, but for a shot in the dark this is the best method.
