Ottawa Bicycling Club – Grand Prix Novice Men’s 2 lap race

August 19, 2013 Leave a comment

Was really pleased that I took the plunge and decided to get back into road racing and this was the perfect event for this. The OBC Grand Prix has been running for over 10 years and takes place on the slopes of Gatineau park along the roads up to champlain lookout.

In the week prior I did a reconnaissance of the course and found it hard but maybe not impossible. Hard climb for about 5 km then rolling and a sharp decline. It wasn’t a pure climbers race but you needed to go uphill fast. Profile below:

So still have lots to go to be competitive, one thing I liked was that my power output was much higher than it has been before. I will do this again next year and hope to upgrade to masters (4 laps) in a couple of years.
