Racing season is here, well, its been here for a couple of weeks, but for the THC roadies, we will be focusing on USA Cycling’s, Ohio Spring Road Series races (OSRS). In a nutshell, the spring road series races consist of eight UCI sanctioned road races in and around southeast Ohio. THC members will pick their races, some doing all (except the one we host), but we can expect a big team showing at most of the races. This year, new promoters have created an exciting and challenging set of courses -be sure to check out the field being blown to bits on the epic Mitchell Memorial course. Anyway, here is a list of races with the dates. For more details, or to link to the online registration site, please visit Big Dave Sports, LLC’s calendar at: http://bigdavesports.com/?cat=12

Following the Road Race series are various summer road races (Tour of Red River Gorge), and summer brings the criterium series and various individual crit races. Then it’s CX season in fall. There are also many Time Trials (see Big Dave Sports, LLC for info). But, hey, let’s get the first road race underway first.
P.S. THC has been out working on our lactate tolerance on the weekends, and since daylight savings, the regular Tuesday and Thursday team rides have been in full swing (5:30 depart from UPS on 3rd street downtown. A and B group if necessary, 40-50 miles in KY).
Here are some pics of where we’ve been riding .
