The Steve Bauer Classic is approaching fast. This year the Classic will host the Ontario Provincial Road Cycling Championships. 2019 will also mark the 35th anniversary of the Classic in the Niagara region.

We wish to welcome new local team partners – Carl McKnight and Jason Rienas of Ironwood Wealth Management Group as our new co-presenting sponsor. We are very grateful to have Carl & Jason contribute to the legacy of this road race with their support.
If you haven’t followed Steve Bauer Classic or Ontario Cycling through social media circle; here is a friendly note to say our race registration is LIVE
Please make sure to download the Technical Guide for all the pertinent information you should know.
We have enhanced the Steve Bauer Classic course of previous years by adding a segment to make the circuit longer and potentially faster for the Ontario Road Provincial Championships. This new course should entice more attacks and opportunities for breakaways. Of course, the hill remains the place to make the difference.
Out of province participants are still welcome to race for the Classic tittle. However only Ontario residents may compete for the Provincial title. The SBC Giordana podium jersey will be awarded to all races’ winner and prizes to all top 3 for each categories. The Ontario Champion jersey and medals will be awarded to the podium of each categories.
Our free t-shirt tradition continues. In the past 3 years we have given away a free t-shirt to the first registrant of each category. This year’s winners are: MU19 Oliver Campbell, WU19 Kathleen Turbitt, MU23 Michael Folley, WU23 Kaitlyn Rauwerda, WE Withney Surgenor, ME Jason Vettorel, MMA Marek Musiej, WMA Jessica Darling, MMB Andrew Taylor, WMB Michelle Harkness, MMC Jeffery Vanderkuur and WMC Melanie Solmon. Congratulations to all the winners. We will be in contact with you by email to confirm your sizing.
Until next time, we wish you a wonderful sunny weekend!
