RULES: Event held under American Bicycle Racing Permit. All 2012 ABR rules apply. Event will be held rain or shine, no refunds. Cyclocross and mountain bikes (no bar ends) are best for cyclocross. Bicycle and wheel changes are allowed in the designated pit areas only. No feeds are allowed on course except under discretion of the race officials. Riders must wear helmets when on the bike at all times. Riders shall stay on the course or existing trails. COURSE INSPECTION: Once the last rider has crossed the line in the current active wave, the officials will allow riders to “pre-ride” the course so they can become familiar with route. Please enter the course just past the finish line. 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 be enough time to complete one lap before the next race starts. Please respect the race in progress. Once the next race has started, no other riders are allowed on course.
