The infamous OHill Mountain Bike Race is back!

This race has guts dueyd and is easy to spectate. Guaranteed solid time or we’ll be surprised.

Racing will be held on a 2.5 mile long XCO style course of mostly wooded singletrack with approx 400ft of climbing per lap.  

Tight downhills to put the roadies in their place, and brutal uphills to make the grav guys squirm. 

A- Lines, B-Lines bring a dropah post.

“World cup level” and “A pain in the ass, but a really great course.”

Former UMass Cycling rider, and local muscleman cyclist, Scott Yarosh

Check a review of the ’17 race by onlooker and MTB local Harry, of the More Sky Better Blog

This race was brought back after a 7 year hiatus for 2017, and is now an annual club event. Weeks of trail work, and help from NEMBA in 2017, led to a clean up of the overgrown trails, and the addition of a new trail on the north side of O’Hill.
