COURSE- There will be 4 stages of racing for the Beginner and Sport Divisions & 5 stages of racing for the Expert, Open and Pro Divisions. Each course consists of mostly fun riding and ripping single track trails. There are also fire roads mixed in to the courses and the riding in general is not overly technical.
You can expect hard packed trails that are generally fast, and full of railing corners & turns that can become extra tricky and technical when taken at race speed.
Toro Park is popular for Mountain Biking because the riding is top notch fun and the views and beauty of the hills and surrounding scenery are epic. The total amount of distance for all 4 timed stages combine for about 5 miles of trails & fire roads with about 3200 ft. descended. Pro & Expert riders will have a little more distance to cover & descend.
The full day should be around 20 miles with an equal amount of climbing.
The special stage that is for the Expert, Open and Pro riders is going to be quite the bonus!
PRACTICE- All trails are open at all times during competition. Please be respectful when pre-riding. Course will be marked by noon on Friday. Also please very courteous to all Toro Park users.
SHUTTLES AND LIFTS- No vehicle shuttling allowed during practice and race.
PROTECTION RULES- Helmets must be worn at all times while you are riding or sitting on a bike.
Full Face helmets are not required.
START ORDER AND START PROCEDURE START ORDER- Start times will be posted for each category for each stage. We’ll be starting riders at each stage by category. The indicated times are the start times at the start of each stage, it is your responsibility to be at each race stage at the time indicated. The posted start times will include estimated transfer time for each stage to help you plan your transfers.
We also allocated 10 minutes between stages, beyond the transfer times, to allow you to manage repairs, hydrate and get some food. So you will have plenty of time to make the transfers between stages and enjoy the day and the race. Also posted with the start times is the time that each stage will close. Any racers arriving at the start of a race stage after the stage has closed may miss their chance to be timed on that stage and will not have a compiled finish time for the event. Within each Category Group, the racer start times are self-seeding.
START PROCEDURE- You must Activate Your Chip – As you enter the start gate there will be an ACTIVATE HERE post with a beacon. Insert into beacon as indicated to activate your timing chip - BEEP-BEEP-BEEP and FLASHING indicate an active chip. Once your timing chip is activated, DO NOT EXIT THE START GATE.
As you move up to the start line, the starter will give you a start time.
Racers will be given a 5 second countdown to their start. Riders must follow directions of the starter.
CLAIMS AND PENALTIES- Marshals will be situated along the course to monitor for any rule violations.
Claims regarding the race progress itself or the attitude of other riders must be put forward to the Race Director (located in the Village) within 30 minutes of the race finish of the last rider.
The Race Director is authorized to give additional penalties that are not listed in the CES rules in the case of a rider who fails to respect the other riders, the spirit of the sport, the environment or the organization. This includes going off course. The course is the currently established trail. The trail is dirt.
