Course & General Info

  • Need course info from Troy!

Jr Novice Races

You may have noticed that we are doing Cat3 Jr novice races early in the day and be asking "hey, what's up with that?" We want to give Jr's, and particularly novice Jr's the best race day experience we can. Separating the Jr. novice races to an earlier start allows us to do 3 things:

  • Fewer racers on course for the race.
  • For families where the one or both parents also race it gives the parents a chance to spectate and cheer their kids.
  • Novice Jr's get their own start, with more people cheering and spectating. Bring the cowbells!

Day Of Registration:

While we strongly encourage you to preregister (and greatly appreciate you doing so as it helps the event go more smoothly), there will be "day of" registration. It will be an extra $10, and will close 30 minutes before the start of your event.

Race day Schedule:

  • 9am registration/packet pickup opens
  • 9:30am jr novice day of registration closes.
  • 10am Cat1 Jr Novice Races
  • 11:30am day of registration closes.
  • 12 noon all other races.  

USA Cycling Licenses and championship eligability:

NOMBS is proud to be bringing a USAC sanctioned series to Ohio and be hosting the official USA Cycling Ohio MTB Championship. Partnering with USA Cycling helps us offer you a great series with structure, good insurance, and allows an opportunity for riders with goals outside Ohio to earn USAC points. 

If you do not have a USAC license you can select a one day licence during checkout. for 2023 NOMBS is covering the cost of your one day license, so it is FREE! This is a great option for riders who want to come out to a few races and have a great time. However to be eligable for series awards or state champion you must purchase an annual license from USA Cycling. You can go here to get your annual, and enter promo code NOMBS to get a discount on your USAC annual license!

USAC Chapmionship eligabiliy rules:

(a) To be eligible for a State Championship jersey or medal, a rider must hold a current USA Cycling annual license and reside in the state as shown on the rider’s license. (b) State Championships are open to US Citizens and permanent residents (green card) with a USA Cycling annual license. (c) Members of UCI road teams are not eligible for road championships unless there is a separate class for them.  (d) At the option of the Administrators, State Championships may include riders who are ineligible for the championship but championship medals will be awarded only to riders who are eligible.

See you at the start line!
