2017 State Championships

Riverside State Park – Spokane, WA

May 21, 2017


 

WELCOME TO SPOKANE FOR THE 2017 STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

For those of you that have participated in the 24 Hour Race by Round and Round, you already know and love this course! And what better way to close out the season than with a venue that allows us all to camp and hang out together.
 
But for many of you, riding in Spokane will be a new experience. Here the trails are dryer, longer and faster. The course is longer than we are used to, but much faster, so lap times should be similar to previous races. Comparatively, the course at Riverside has much less climbing and ample room for passing – which will be nice after Roslyn!
 
RACE CATEGORY CHANGE DEADLINE: May 12, 2017
 
 

State Championship Race

The winners of the State Championship will be awarded special State Championship medals and the first place finisher in each category will be presented with a State Championship jersey!
 
Individual series overall medals will also be awarded (5-deep) as well as series overall 1st – 3rd in the team competition.
 
Note: While the State Championship race is a stand-alone for the state championship title, students will still earn points that count toward the series overall.
 
 

Coaches Race

Coaches, this is your time to shine and show your students that you too can do it! The coaches race is for all registered coaches and the it’s free. The race is very informal and you can choose to race 1 or 2 laps. Please check in at registration to register for the race and get a number plate.

F.A.Q.

  • I was awarded the Leader’s Jersey last race. What do I do with it? WEAR IT the next race. Receiving a Leader’s Jersey is a highly coveted honor, be proud to wear it.
  • Do I need to register for the race? No. When you register for the Spring Program you are automatically pre-registered for all of the races. It is imperative that you know what your race category is. You can verify your category here. Note that there are deadlines for filing a petition for changing your race category.
  • How do I get my race plate with my bib number? See Race Plate above.
  • What day is the race? Race days are always on Sunday’s. Course setup is on Saturday and course pre-ride is on Saturday afternoons from 2pm to 5pm.
  • How early should I arrive on race day? Team tents should be setup in the Village no later than 9:00 AM, but earlier is recommended. Often the course runs through the Village so setting up early is best. Student-athletes and parents, I would talk to your coach about when they would like you there.
  • Can we put our team tent anywhere we like? No. All team tents must be located in the Village.
  • What is the “Village”? The Village is where we build community! Located in the heart of the venue, the Village is where team tents are located, Registration, Volunteer Check-in, First Aid, Neutral Support and often time the Feed Zone or Hydration Station.
  • What is the Feed Zone? The Feed Zone is an area designated for providing riders with hydration and nutrition during the races in a safe, controlled manner. Designated coaches, riders, and volunteers can enter the feed zone and hand-off food and bottles, sun glasses, jackets, etc. to riders as they pass by. Bring your own water bottle.
  • Will there be food available at the race? Most races we will not have food vendors. If one will be available we will post on the race site. We will be providing snacks for our volunteers which will be available when you check in at the volunteer tent. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN FOOD AND DRINK. We encourage parents to get involved with providing food for your team! Hang out, bbq, and meet your neighbors. If you do bbq, it is always a good idea to bring a fire extinguisher. Note: some venues may ban bbq’s. If this is the case, it will be clearly posted.
  • What time do I need to be at the start line? See the Race Day Schedule listed above.
  • Will there be rider call-ups? Yes. See Rider Staging above.
  • How does the scoring work? There are two competitions. Individual by Race Category and Team Competition. See the Rule Book for more information.
  • What I want to change race categories, how does that work? If you would like to change categories, you must file a petition by the deadline. The petition is reviewed by the Rules and Appeals Committee. If your petition is approved for an “upgrade”, for instance if you go from Intermediate to JV or JV to Varsity, your earned points will be carried forward to your new category. Unfortunately downgrade points do not follow.
