Which category should I race? We suggest that racers in the A Category are able to maintain an 18 mph or greater pace for the duration of the event. As this event is self-seeded, please use your best judgement when registering and sign up for the category best suited to your abilities. For those who feel their pace will be less than 18 mph, we suggest registering for the B Category. 


Road bikes with drop bars are REQUIRED to enter the race. NO aero bars will be allowed. ALL racers must wear a helmet.


If a racer is lapped during the race, they will be flagged at the start/finish area by the official where they must pull off the course immediately.


In the event of a mishap (crash or mechanical failure) a racer may be granted one free lap in order to regroup at the back of the pack they were with at the time of said mishap. The racer must check in at the designated pit area with the referee to be granted a free lap.
