Category 1 racers in the age groups 15-54 for men and 15-49 for women must qualify. There are seven possible ways for riders to qualify to compete in the cross-country competitions, and these are outlined here.
You MUST check the qualified riders list before you register for a race. Riders registering for a race they have not qualified for will forfeit their registration fee and be removed from the registered riders list. All riders will be verified for qualification.
Pro riders are automatically qualified in their Pro discipline. Pro riders cannot race down into their age groups.
If you have questions about the event or about the qualification process, please don’t hesitate to contact USA Cycling’s National Events Director Tony Leko at 719-434-4284 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about online registration, please contact USA Cycling's Technical Programs Manager Tom Mahoney at 719-434-4216 or email@example.com.
Looking forward to seeing you in Bear Creek!
