Amateur Race Info

RULES:

2018 Amateur Tech Guide Preliminary copy. A final printed copy will be handed out at Packet Pickup.

STAGE RACE RULES:

Each rider's general classification shall be calculated by summing the rider's time in all individual stages, taking into account any time bonuses and penalties. In case two or more riders are tied in their final general classifications, their order shall be determined by adding their places obtained in each stage. If this does not suffice to break the tie, ties are broken by place in the criterium.
