Ohio Randonneurs did not submit the date for the 2018 Flèche by the deadline of October 1 2017. I recently learned of this. Since then I have worked with RUSA and ACP officials to get ACP approval for teams and riders who complete the flèche. The effort was successful. On the calendar the flèche may be listed as a RUSA Arrow but will be recorded with ACP as a sanctioned flèche when results are submitted. The 2018 OR flèche will meet the requirement for R-5000 and R-10000 recognition. So wait no longer; form your team, submit your registration (download here) and send in your proposed route. I apologize for the uncertainty – and am pleased that the ride will now be official with ACP.
