Points may not be transferred from Category to Category. For example, if you race as a Category 5 in Races 1-3 and then are upgraded to category 4 in Race 4, you do not lose your Category 5 points for Races 1-3, but you will start with 0 points in the Category 4 race in Race 4.

1) Male racers with a one day license must race in the Category 5 race. Female racers with a one day license must race in the Women’s Category 4/5 or Masters 35+ race.

2) Junior Men 15-18 racers will race alongside the Men’s Category 3/4. They will be eligible for M3/4 race and NEOCX series podiums and prizes and listed with the M3/4 in USAC results. They will also be eligible for separate junior podiums and prizes. (Special note: If there are two registration fields in a pre-reg system, pick the cheaper one).

3) Junior Women 15-18 racers will race alongside the Women’s Category 3/4/5. They will be eligible for W3/4/5 race and NEOCX series podiums and prizes and listed with the W3/4/5 in USAC results. They will also be eligible for separate junior podiums and prizes. ( Special note: If there are two registration fields in a pre-reg system, pick the cheaper one).

4) Masters Men Category 1 racers may not enter the Masters 45+, 55+, or 65+ races, regardless of age.

5) Women Category 1 racers may not enter the Women’s 35+ race.

6) Masters categories have an age floor but no ceiling. 45+/55+/65+ Masters racers looking for an additional challenge may race in the 35+ category.

If you do not finish (DNF) a Race, that Race will count as an eligible Race for the overall Series and you will receive 1 (one) overall Series points for that Race.

Series Prizes:

Fun stuff, very minimal monetary value, but you also get the pride of saying you’re the baddest mofo in cyclocross land.

In the event of a tie in any placing in the overall Series points standings at the end of the Series, the tied racer with the most head-to-head victories wins the tiebreaker. If head to head victories are equal, the previous race’s result (or Over the Top-style arm wrestling) serves as the tie breaker.
