*Course may vary from week to week and mileage and laps posted here may change, but it is a good guideline as you’re selecting the class you’ll be participating in.
Choosing your class: New to racing? Not sure what class to race your first race? Here’s a quick guideline.
*MEN’S TRUE BEGINNER (OPEN- 16 yrs+)- This class is not scored for the series points….it is a TRUE BEGINNER CLASS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER RACED, or haven’t raced since the Banana seat on your bike was still the most comfortable and fashionable combo available.
KID’S RACE- (6-8 & 9-11 yrs)- 5:30pm start – $10 on-site registration only. Boys and Girls. *Note- parents if your child is 11 and you feel they are ready for 2 laps on the main course with the juniors, please talk with us. We will make exceptions, but only if we speak with you first.
JUNIORS CLASS- 11 years t0 15 years.
BEGINNERS CLASS- Recreational riders.New racers. You ride, but don’t usually race. Riding your local ride spot, you’re not exhausting yourself at 100% effort every ride, just to get faster. 10 miles is a long ride for you.
SPORT CLASS- You’ve either raced before, or ride hard when you ride your local spot. If a couple hour ride, with a decent amount of climbing makes you cringe, think about racing as a beginner. Sport Class adds approx 4 miles to the Beginner Class, so plan on racing for approximately 11 miles.
SUPER SPORT- A step between the Sport & Expert Classes. We have a lot of fast Sport riders who have considered to moving up, but the step to expert is pretty major. So we’ve created a new class as an intermediary between sport and expert. Super Sport will run 3 laps, and be an Open Age Class. All of you fast sport riders… this is the new class for you.
SINGLE SPEED CLASS- You ride a single speed bike! Women and Men open.
EXPERT CLASS- Typically race CAT 2 or CAT 1 at other races. This class is fast with 4 laps for experienced and accomplished racers.
