on getting through registration
and checking results
Registration closes 30 minutes before the start of each race:
Cat 3, Cat 2, and Cat 1. Plan on arriving at the venue 1 ½
to 2 hours before your race start time. At many race sites,
parking is far from registration and lines can slow things
first and most obvious way to speed up registration is to
pre-register for all your races. This will save you money!
If you figure the cost of late entry fees versus pre-entry
fees, it’s pretty easy to understand that pre-registering
for 6 events costs the same, or less, than late registration
for 5 – SO YOU GET ONE RACE FREE!
Fill out a USA Cycling Athletes Release Form.
Check the One Day License box in the upper left corner
if you do not have an annual license.
participants must have a license. Annual licenses
are for sale online.
National rankings, etc. require an annual license.
Have your license checked by the official.
If Pre-Registered - Go to the Pre-Registration station
and exchange your Release Form for you race number.
YOU ARE READY TO RACE!!!!
If NOT Pre-Registered - Proceed to the cashier and
pay for your race and license if necessary.
Now take your Release Form to one of the computer
entry stations. This is when any changes such as your
address, Team Name, or change of race class should
be made. Just ask the computer operator to update
your entry. The computer operator will take your Release
Form and give you your race number.
verify that you are registered in the correct age,
gender, and category.
NOT BEND, CUT, FOLD, PUT STICKERS ON, WRITE ON, OR
IN ANY OTHER WAY, ALTER YOUR RACE NUMBER. ATTACH YOUR
RACE NUMBER TO THE FRONT OF YOUR BIKE IN SUCH A WAY
THAT THE SCORING STAFF CAN EASILY SEE YOUR NUMBER.
for after the race
NOT TALK TO THE SCORING STAFF AT THE FINISH LINE.
To help the scoring crew, call out your bib number
when crossing the line. To ensure that your placing
is correct, also make note of the rider who crosses
the line just behind or just in front of you. If you
do not know them, introduce yourself, as one of the
greatest benefits of this sport is the new friends
we all make. By doing this, if you are part of the
1% of riders whose bib number is missed, or written
down wrong, we can easily make the correction.
importantly, DO NOT ask the scoring crew how you finished.
Finish orders will be posted within minutes after
your crossing the line.
the event your bib number was not written down, or
written down incorrectly, your new found friend will
be able to help establish your proper placing.
the majority of riders in a class have crossed the line, the
results will be posted. Any rider who feels their placing
is not correct may, at this time, file a formal protest with
the USA Cycling official. The USA Cycling official may require
a protest fee of $20 in order to hear a protest. This fee
will be refunded if the protest is upheld, and it may not
be if it is denied.
you feel a rider was unsportsmanlike in their conduct on the
racecourse, bring this to the attention of the USA Cycling
official. Witnesses to the conduct in question will be required
before any action may be taken.
IMPORTANT BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!
