Enter in your regular grade to help with initial groupings and then please provide as much info as possible to assist with handicapping. Please add any remarks in the info box when entering that may assist the handicappers (such as names of other club members who you believe are at about the same level as yourself).

Enter as soon as possible to give our handicappers a better chance of determining fair start times...you don't want to make the handicappers angry with you if you enter late! If you need to scratch yourself after entering, please be fair to other riders and do it as early as possible.
