    Ontario Super D
    So while Fontana California is ramping up for their Winter Super D Series...we're just in the dead of winter. I'm looking forward to some riding this summer and especially some Super D.
    I hear rumors that there is no promoter for it though.
    I'm just hoping someone here (Pete) can shed some light on what's happening on the Super D front here in Ontario.

    Well, Pete (sirbikealot) is out of doing downhill OCups and Super-Ds. Tuf Rack took over - no idea if they'll bother with Super-Ds. They were a bit of a passion for Peter. Would be a shame if they didn't happen.

    There isn't any DH information on the preliminary OCA event calendar either so it's "tuf" to say what's gonna happen this season. ;)

    I'm gonna have to see if I can get California Steel to call the office to send me down for a service call. It made for a couple sweet riding weeks last winter, even if I did leave the day before a race weekend. :thumbsup:

    Please do. I've been interested in Super-D ever since I read about it.

    Doesn't that just give more motivation for this? ;)

    I just found this thread. It didn't come up when I searched "Ontario Super d" weird. I couldn't make any of the super d events last year, but was looking forward to it this year. Was there low turn out at these events? wonder if someone else will put something on. I'd be down for unsanctioned or toonie race super d's for sure!

    Hey Pipes.
    I'm pretty sure there's a bunch of us who would be interested in this!! I think many don't know about the Super ds being dropped from o-cup

    If an underground Super D is going; I would love to know and praticupate.

    Wondering if it would be mass start or time-trial format.

    Super D is great for the us older dh riders who can't a) afford dh any more b) can not afford to hurt thems selves anymore as we do no bounce well anymore.

    As I mentioned above would love to know more.

    I wonder if we all took over blue one day and ran an intermediate course time trial wise with some radio timers at the top and bottom to do plates and such if that'd work.

    .... something tells me Blue would frown on this kind of shenanigans.
