RULES: This USCX event is permitted and sanctioned by North American Bicycle Racing Association. All NABRA rules apply. Event will be held rain or shine. No refunds. Bicycle and wheel changes are allowed in the designated pit areas only. Helmets are required at all times while on the bike. Water feeds are allowed during the race in designated area only when approved by race official. Cyclocross or hard tail mountain bikes (without bar ends) are best for handling the course and obstacles. Mountain Bike pedals and shoes are best or flat pedals. This event is held under NABRA Cycling Permit. 2013 NABRA rules apply. Warming up on the Course Once the last rider has crossed the line in the current active wave, the race officials will allow riders to “pre-ride” the course to become familiar with route and obstacles. Please enter the course past the finish line and do not pass or enter in front of riders who are still racing on the course. As in the past, while pre-riding do not cross the finish line while the timing system is running and do not pass active racers on course. There will always be enough time to complete one lap before the next race starts. Once the next race has started, warming up on the course is not allowed. CATEGORIES: Senior (over 18 years of age as of 12.31.2014) and Masters categories may be listed by ability as well as age. Ability categories are as follows: A (CX Cat 1-4) is the fastest group out there – also might be called expert, elite. Highly competitive – if you aren’t an experienced racer (in cyclocross or another discipline) this is likely not the group for you. B (CX Cat 3-5) is the intermediate group – faster and more experienced than “C” riders but not at “A” pace yet. C (CX Cat 4-5) is the beginner group – new racers or first time cyclocrossers should usually start here and move to “B” when comfortable. Masters is for riders with a racing age (on Dec 31, 2014) equal to or greater than the indicated age. Masters A (CX-1-4) is often the second fastest group on the course, just behind the A race. Basically “A”racers that are older and have family/career commitments. Masters B (CX3-5) is generally a bit slower than B, as the average age is higher in the Masters group For new racers eligible to race masters, you might want to try both “C” and Masters B to see which you prefer. SoCalCross discourages sandbagging. Please upgrade to the higher category when qualified. NOTE: USA Cycling does not recognize ABR or NABRA sanctioned events for CX category upgrades or USAC national ranking points. CYCLOCROSS RACING AGE: A rider’s racing age for the 2013-14 Cyclocross Season is the 'racing age' the year in which the CX World Championships take place which is February, 2014. Basically your racing age for the entire cyclocross season running September 2013 through January 2014 is your age as of 12/31/2014. RESULTS: Race results will be posted near the awards area immediately following each race. Please make sure to check your results within the 15-minute posting/protest period or they will be final.
