Racing Tips

Tips 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 down.

The 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! As well, many races offer free T-shirts to pre-registered riders. Fill out the form in the TMBRA website, make copies and mail with your check before the deadlines shown.

Race Day Registration

1. Fill out a USA Cycling Standard Athlete's Entry Blank and Release Form. To save time you can bring this form to the race already completed.

2. Check the One Day License box in the upper left corner if you do not have an annual license.

All participants must have a license. Annual licenses are for sale at each venue. It is recommended that you purchase your annual license at a race so that you will have a receipt until your new license is received. One Day licenses are available at each race. National rankings, etc. require an annual license.

3. Have your license checked by the official.

4A. If Pre-Registered - Go to the Pre-Registration station and exchange your Release Form for you race number. YOU ARE READY TO RACE!!!!

4B. If NOT Pre-Registered - Proceed to the cashier and pay for your race and license if necessary.

5. 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.

Always verify that you are registered in the correct age, gender, and category.

DO 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 THAY THE SCORING STAFF CAN EASILY SEE YOUR NUMBER.

Tips for after the race

DO 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.

Most importantly, DO NOT ask the scoring crew how you finished. Finish orders will be posted within minutes after your crossing the line.

In the event your bib number was not written down, or written down incorrectly, your newfound friend will be able to help establish your proper placing.

When 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.

If 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.
