Can I camp somewhere in town to save money?

Can I show up Saturday and pick up my packet to race then?

  • Yes but only if you are racing in the B or C class. We would prefer you do not because of the small amount of time before the race starts. However we realize this can help save money on an extra night at hotels so will not turn you down if this is needed.

 

race

How does racing for two/three days actually work?

  • Your total time is added together on both days to give a total time.

I see you are using Cat A, B, and C to separate the classes, does that mean I need a license to race?

  • You do NOT need a license to race this event. We are letting you select which category you belong in. Remember though, better prizes are awarded for the faster classes with the Cat A class being the only one with a cash payout.

Are there time bonuses for hills or finishing first?

I am racing single speed, can I change my gearing from one day to the next?
