RACE CATEGORIES

We will be implementing slightly different batching rules.

Race Categories according to age and gender will be batched together, similar to what you would find in road races. This way, riders can keep track of who they are racing against and where they are in the field. Batches will be smaller, enhancing rider safety.
Category Size Start
Elite Men (19-29) 100 06:45
Sub Vet Men (30-39) 75 06:50
Vet Men (40-49) 75 06:55
Master Men (50-59) 75 07:00
Racing Ladies (Elite, Sub Vet, Vet, Master, Grand Master) 100 07:05
Grand Master Men (60+) 20 07:10
A Batch 250 07:15
B, C, D, E, F, G, H
I Batch 250 07:55

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:

  • Only riders who Start in the Elite men or lady batches will be in contention for the overall prizes.
  • Only riders who Start in the appropriate age category will be eligible for age category prizes.
  • Riders may choose to ride down a category. As example: Someone who is above 40 years of age (Vet), may chose to ride in the Elite category, and can be reseeded into the Elite batch, but will no longer be able to qualify for a Veteran prize category.

Further communication on batching will be sent out closer to the race date.
