Amateur Registration

2018 Format & Policy Changes  (prize money, race format, field sizes, masters men and masters women categories).

  • Prize Money - With the exception of the Men 1,2 category, instead of prize money there will be leader's jerseys after the first and final stages, unique awards and post-ride festivities.
  • Race T-shirt - Entry fees come with a race t-shirt, but you can elect to not choose a t-shirt and save $10.
  • Race Format (2-day, 2-stages) - It was time for a change and the race had become too predictable.  The road races are longer and more challenging.
  • Masters Men - two Masters fields have been established.  Master Men A (Cat 1-3) and Men Master B (Cat 3 & 4)
  • Masters Women - in order to continue to sustain and support a seperate Master's Women's field during the criterium, a minimum of 15 riders must be registered by March 31. If less than 15 riders are registered, then you will have three options.  This choice must occur before the start of the first stage. Option 1 - riders can race with the Women 3,4,5 criterium (but will be scored seperately), Option 2 - transfer to a men's master or category field or Option 3 - receive a refund.  Recruit your fellow riders!
