COST: $10 for each event; $25 for all three. Please pay at/before the start of your first event. You must be a member in good standing to participate! If you haven’t already, please join the DWC with this link: http://tiny.cc/0lfblx

NUMBERS:  You will receive your number before the start of the first event you are registered. 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 events; do not lose this number!

VOLUNTEERS: We will need help at all 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 the MTBTT and RTT. All 3 events will count towards the overall! There will be 3 bonus points for a mid-road race sprint,  riding a “Merckx” TT during the RTT, or riding a single speed during the MTB TT. 

PRIZES: All Final Category winners will win something unique!* We will have other prizes too! If you or your business has something you would like to add to the prize pool please contact us! 

*In the past we have done jerseys but this is problematic because we have to order a certain amount to make it affordable and we don’t know what sizes to order ahead of time. This years prize might be a jersey, but it could be a vest, it might also be a jersey with an embroidered patch, it might be a medal, or a belt buckle, or something truly unique made by one of our local artists. At this point we don’t know except it will be cool and special!

PARTY! Yes, we will have a party, time and place TBD

COURSE NOTES:

This year’s Road Race and Road TT are identical to last year. The MTB TT will be longer than last year and is still TBD. The Road Race will be the same as last year, with 2-4 laps of the upper valley and the finish halfway up Shalona on US 550, just past the railroad bridge.

The MTBTT course has been marked!  MTBTT INFO

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!
