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:
||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.
- See https://goo.gl/YQOrPn for more details
Juniors Racing Senior Grades
- U17 Juniors are welcome to race senior grades as long as CA Tech Reg distance and roll-out/age-appropriate gearing restrictions are adhered to.
- Junior pricing will apply - but no prize money will be awarded. (applies to U17 only. No restrictions on U19)
- Younger juniors (U15 and below) are requested to race with David Morgan.
