IMPORTANT

  • Finish Line Area: - It is important to keep all finish lines free from congestion. Please move off the road once finsihed.

Women's Grades - Special Notice

  • Select races throughout the season will offer women's grades as part of a Women's Series.

  • For scratch races not designated as Women's Series events, women can race in the standard Combine grades with separate recognition of results. In other words, there will be a race within a race for women's placings (with the composition of placings offered a function of how many women race). We strongly recommend you enter the following grades:

Women's Grade Combine Grade Note
Women's A C grade
Women's B D grade
Women's C E grade May race with D grade (with calculated headstart) if no E grade is offered


  • There are exceptions to this and we will support individuals wishing to race in a higher grade.
