Student athletes are expected to be able to safely complete the course within the designated time limit. Athletes may be asked to withdraw and exit the course after cut-off time limits have been reached. Racers who do not make the time limit cut-off will still be scored and ranked. 

League and race officials reserve the right to determine these time limits and alter them at any time. Time limits may be imposed or altered for reasons that include, but are not limited to, safety, heat, cold, rain, and muddy conditions. 

Chip Timing

All riders will receive a permanent number plate with a chip timing transponder on the backside. Riders will use the same plate for the entire race series. Please remove this number plate before transporting bikes to prevent loss. 

Replacement number plates will be available at the registration tent for $10.00.

Live ace results will be posted at the race and will be available on my.raceresults.com

Category Placement Petitions

Those petitioning for exceptions to category placement must do so two weeks before the race date.

Weather Policy

The League’s primary considerations in assessing inclement weather plans are the safety of riders, staff and spectators, as well as the potential for damage to the venue and trails. Decisions regarding canceling, postponing or altering race start times, lap lengths, number of laps, etc. will be made jointly by league staff and the land manager. Often, these decisions cannot be made until the day of the race due to the unpredictability of severe weather. The league will make every attempt to notify all stakeholders as soon as possible via email, social media, website updates and/or the coaches GroupMe. Please review the full Weather Policy for additional details.
