LAXC Series Rules:

Rules

We will be updating these throughout the Winter to make for the best 2016 series possible. Please do submit your ideas to us! (wwwllaxc.org or laxc facebook page)

Drop Races

There will be two drop races in the 2016 series. Racers will be scored for the championship on their best 5 out of 7 races in the series. Non-attendance of a race will be considered a drop.

Weather Policy

Mountain bike races are rain or shine events. Race Directors are expected to reserve trails under agreements with parks to hold races on the date they are scheduled, except in the case of thunder/lightning or severe flooding.

Series Categories

Kids Race (free and optional, championship not awarded)

Men

Category 3 (Beginner) age groups: 15-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+
Category 2 (Intermediate): 15-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+
Category 1 (Pro/Expert): 15-39, 40+
Women

Category 3 (Beginner), all age groups
Category 1/2 (Expert & Intermediate), all age groups
Single Speed Open (Male/Female)

* The Piney Hills Classic is exempt from series categories since it is primarily organized by TMBRA. TMBRA results will be adapted to LAXC categories for points standings.

Fees

For 2016, registration fees are reduced to $25 for pre-registration online, and $30 for onsite registration. The Piney Hills Classic is exempt from the fee schedule since it is primarily organized by TMBRA.

Awards

Individual awards/medals for all official series categories are awarded after scoring has been completed. Cash payout for top three finishers in each Cat 1 group is generally expected, with amounts at the discretion of the race promoter. For 2016, race directors are not expected to provide free food and drink, other than water, t-shirts, or other swag, to racers in order to keep fees low.

USACycling

The LAXC series is USAC-affiliated and subject to its rules as the official state championship of Louisiana Cross-Country Mountain biking. To race our series and win the championship, all riders must have an annual license. However to race individual races, people racing Cat 2 or Cat 3 can purchase a 1-day license for $5. Cat 1 racers must have an active annual license or purchase a $25 one-day license (new this year).

Helmets are required at all times during the races and while riding at the race venues.

This is a fast flowy course with lots of berms. Hope you will get out and support this great group of guys in hosting their first race.
