Also, to include this race in your USAC-MTB ranking, an annual license must be purchased prior to race day. Take advantage of this elevated level race and pre-purchase a license at www.usacycling.org.
The race director reserves the right to combine classes (classes with less than five riders may be incorporated into other classes). HELMETS REQUIRED.
