USAC-MTB ANNUAL LICENSE REQUIRED FOR EXPERTS AND RANKINGS.  Annual Licenses are $60 ($30 for Juniors) and can be purchased at the race site, but historically this takes up to six weeks for the card to be received back.  Online purchasing is much quicker.  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.

Prizes:
1 Lap Races:  Cat 3 (Base) Classes earn trophies.

2 Lap Races:  Cat 2 (Sport) Classes, Single Speed, and Clydesdale will be awarded merchandise.  We often have enough merchandise to go deeper than advertised, so be sure to check on this after the race.  Cat 1-2 50+ will receive cash according to the Gone Riding Payout Sheet.
