Rules and Regs

  • Standard Mountain Bike Racing rules apply.  In short this means ride courteously.
  • It is the responsibility of the passing rider to pass safely,  it is courteous for a rider being passed to allow faster riders by.  Willfully moving to cut off or block a passing rider is not allowed.
  • Races are on estimated time.    After the first lap, officials will use first lap time to determine the total number of laps for the race so that the leader will finish in about the time allotted.  When the lead rider finishes, all other riders will finish the lap they are on and then be done.   Results will be based on number of laps completed and the time it took to do them.

FAQ

  1.  What race should my Kids ride in?

There are three youth categories, we do allow "racing up" in a more advanced category, but not generally racing down a category.  If you are 14 years old but not yet 18 years old,  you are expected to race the Under 18 (U18) category,  but we have seen a lot of situations where faster Juniors have decided to race with the adults.   In our first race we actually had a Junior Female,  race in with the Mens A race.  This is allowed,  just know you will be scored in the race you pick.      If you are under 14 years of age you have some options.  Generally riders 10-14 will ride in the under 14 (U14) race.   We ask that ALL RIDERS UNDER 14  pre-ride the course WITH AN ADULT to make sure they are comfortable on the course before registering.  If the are not comfortable on the big course we suggest riding the Kids race.  We will break the kids race down into age groups depending on who is registered for it.
