2011 DWC Champs Info Update 9-8-11

UPDATED ITEMS IN RED (last update 9/8, 10am)

The DWC Champs is a fun, local event open to ALL levels of cyclists! This is a great way to finish off the summer season!

TO REGISTER: Send an email to Spencer with your name, age, desired category, and races you plan to do. Before the start of your first race you can pay $10 and we will give you a number to wear for all the events.

DWC Champs Schedule:
Sept 8: Thursday Road Time Trial – First rider off at 5:30 pm
Sept 10: Saturday Road Race – 9 am start
Sept 11: Sunday Criterium Finale – 9 am start

Categories:
A*,B*,C*, M40+**, W40+, M60+, W60+
In order to win a DWC Champs jersey you must complete 3 events and your category must contain a minimum of 5 participants competing in at least 3 events. Categories will be combined if participation is low. Final categories will be set before the start of the Road Race.
*Men and Women (if we have enough per category)
**The M40+ is an A level category!

Ride in the group/level that you normally ride in. If you won your category last year you must move up in category.

A, B, C are open to men and women. A women’s overall champion will be crowned regardless of how many participants we have.

DWC Champions Jerseys will be awarded to the winner of each category!

Courses: All the courses will be the same as last year! Click here for info on MTB TT and Road TT: http://durangowheelclub.com/2011/09/01/dwc-tt-courses/

Sandbaggers: After the second TT we will be able to tell if anyone is riding in a category that they do not belong. If it is obvious that you should be riding in the B category, but you signed up for the C, you will be moved up!

Cost: Only $10 for Current 2010 DWC Members includes all 4 events! Not a member? No problem! You can join the DWC for the remainder of the 2010 season for just $20 if you register for the DWC Champs. (click here to send Spencer an email and he will take care of this for you.)

Numbers: Pin your number to the right side of your jersey so that it can be easily read when you are riding. This will be your only number for all four events; do not lose this number!

Volunteers: We will need help at all four events! If you are not racing and would like to help out please send Spencer an email!

Scoring: We will be using an omnium points system to determine the overall winners in each category. Omnium points will be determined by finish order for all events using a 30 point sliding scale for the road race and 25 point scales for all other events. 3 out of 4 events will be counted. A 4 point bonus will be awarded to every participant who completes all 4 events!

IMPORTANT: Our top priority is having a safe event. Please keep this in mind at all times. The races will be held on open roads and all traffic rules and regulations will be in effect. All riders must obey all traffic signs and yield to traffic. All riders must ride in a neutral manner through intersections. Anyone taking unnecessary risks will be immediately disqualified! These races are not sanctioned by anyone and are being run by volunteers!
