Race CategorieS:

CAT 3 - Beginner racer.  Requires heavy breathing when going uphill.  Not too serious and generally has the most fun.

CAT 2 - Intermediate racer with previous racing experience and moderate fitness.  Puts in more work training than necessary and denies they should be Cat 1.

CAT 1 - Experienced racer and advanced fitness.  Generally takes things far too seriously for regional racing and sticks to a dedicated training program.

Masters (40+ and 50+) - Racers who fall into an older age category and have most likely started to receive AARP fliers in the mail.

Single Speed - Only has one gear. Makes riding a bike harder than it needs to be.  Full of excuses.

Clydesdale - Racers over 220 lbs.  Loves a good cheeseburger on the starting line.

Juniors (U18/U14) - Young guns.  Just starting to learn how fun riding bikes is.  Curious as to why grown adults are riding around in spandex


Cat 1: 100% cash payout to top three for men and women (we take 100% of the entry fees from the Cat 1 field and divide it up between the top 3 finishers).

First - 60%

Second - 30%

Third - 10%

Cat 2, 3, Masters, Clydesdale, Juniors: Merchandise for top three men and women.


A rider's best 4 finishes out of the 5 BMC Series races will be used to calculate a series point total.  Points are based on overall place within the category.  Series overall awards TBD.
