2017 Oremageddon Race Regulations

GENERAL GUIDELINES

The mandatory pre-race instruction meeting is scheduled for 9:15am, Saturday, October 7th, 2017 at the beginning of the race at the Miners Mountain Rally Center.

Each participant must place their race number on the front of his/her bicycle.

POOR CONDITIONS

If the conditions of the Oremageddon race course are unsafe due to weather or other factors, the race will be cancelled.  Due to fast drying nature of the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails, rains the day or evening before should not affect the race.

Should rain start in the midst of the race, an assessment of potential rainfall and other factors will be used to determine if the race will be stopped.

RACE START TIMES

RACE START CLASSES & WAVES

Race is waved, mass start.  For the purposes of timing all persons in an individual wave are given the same start time.  It may be possible to be in the second wave of a class and still win as time is the important factor.

The race will have a starting loop, that climbs up ⅔ of the Miners Mountain Road to the Overlook before descending.  Grades in this location exceed 20% in some areas and is 20’ wide till the turn onto single track.  Because of the grades and width, there is plenty of room to jockey for position.

PLEASE RESPECT OUR CULTURE OF SAFETY
