Important Race Info:
Please be cautious in your descent after the race; watch for deer!
Be aware of riders in front of you. DO NOT RIDE WITH YOUR EYES DOWN
Ride to the right of the road as possible; safe passing is the responsibility of the overtaking rider. Drafting is not allowed. Crossing the centerline will result in disqualification.
Pre-registration is $17 per race or $70 for the 5-race series (add $5 for on-site registration). $2 for each race entry will be donated to the scholarship fund of the local NICA league, Eugene MTB Racing (mountain bike racing for middle and high school student athletes). (Special discounts apply to members of Eugene MTB Racing! Talk to your coaches for entry info.)
Series standings will be based on the racer’s combined four fastest finishing times (racers may skip one race or drop their slowest time to be scored in the series standings). Top ten male and female finishers will receive medals. There will be a :30 bonus deducted from the cumulative time of racers who also complete the Mary’s Peak Hill Climb on June 8th.
The two riders with the fastest one-night men’s and women’s times of the month will win $75.
A raffle of merchandise and gift certificates for all participants will be held at the July 30th awards ceremony. Participants will earn one raffle ticket for each race they entered.
