Categories are self-seeding. Sandbagging will not be tolerated. Riders are encouraged to chose the category that provides them the maximum challenge while allowing for them to be competitive.

  • Elite – Formally know as Cat 1/2. Regional & National Level riders.
  • Cat 3 – Intermediate
  • Cat 4 – CX beginner with experience in other cycling disciplines
  • Beginner – Someone with little or no racing experience in any cycling discipline.
    • It is suggested that any rider who finished in the top-5 of any Beginner race in 2018 ride in a Cat 4 category (Masters is ok) in 2019.

Masters – Age graded 35 and over (born 1987 or earlier). Combine your ability/experience with your age to chose a category i.e. over 45 beginner = Cat 4 Master 45+.  For the 2021 cyclocross season Master ages will be broken down by the following birth years: 1987 or earlier (35+), 1977 or earlier (45+), 1972 or earlier (50+), 1967 or earlier (55+) and 1962 or earlier (60+). Master Elite is open to any rider born 1987 or earlier.

Clydesdale – 200 lb plus riders. Your home scale weight in your skivvies.

Juniors – Will race grade level. Juniors will grouped as follows: High School, Middle School and Third-Fifth Grade for the 30 minute Junior Race.  First and Second Grade will ride a one lap race on the race main course if their parents feel they have out grown the Little Kids Race. Races will be scored separately for Boys and Girls.

In order to be accurately scored, bib numbers and timing chips must be worn properly – timing chips on helmet and bib number on the correct side for the day (left or right) and clearly visible to the judges at the finish line.

It is your responsibility to display your bib number properly as you may not be scored if we cannot read your bib number or timing chip.

  • If you have more than one series bib number because of losing one or racing multiple categories, it is your responsibility to wear the one that you checked in with at registration
  • If you are racing two different races within our series, you will be issued two bib numbers and two chip numbers.   IT IS REQUIRED that you wear the correct bib and chip number.   Our scoring system will not recognize your chip or bib from your other category.
  • Please ensure that ponytails, hydration packs, etc. do not cover your bib number
  • When crossing the finish line please do not sit-up or raise your hands to otherwise prevent us from reading your bib number
  • If for any reason we cannot determine who you are by your bib number you will not be placed in the race

You will not be scored if…

  • Your timing chip is poorly placed and can’t be read – mount it on your helmet (examples at registration)
  • You do not wear a MFG bib number AND timing chip
  • You wore your “other category” chip and/or bib number
  • You wear a bib number from a different race series
  • We can’t read your bib # because it’s upside down, on the wrong side, poorly placed, etc

Results will be posted after each race, on-site, approximately 30 minutes after your race finishes and on Webscorer.com If you believe your result is incorrect, please do ONE of the following
