Reserve Your Spot
- 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.
