This years qualifier in Ohio is scheduled in June on the 24-25. http://www.ohioseniorolympics.org/index.php?p=4

I competed in the 2012 games and qualified for the NSG in the road races. The site has a link to prior years results. I'd be leary of last summers NSG times in the TT events. The company doing the timing messed it up big time. In order to get to the big show you will need to be top 4 of Ohio racers in one of the two TT's. Last summer in the State Senior Olympics Cycling events, held near Alliance, I did the RR's and 5K TT. I raced the TT with my fixed gear track bike with disk wheel, aero bar and aero helmet. The course was an out and back that had a few rollers on it, the head wind on the first leg was brutal with my single gear choice. I don't know your age, but if it's under 65 a TT machine would be highly encouraged. At a minimum get clip on bars and a TT helmet.
