Course: Course will be designed to favor cross bikes, at least in the promoters opinion. Course will not conform exactly to modern UCI/USAC standards in that some sections will be narrower than 3 meters. We may also use hurdles in singles or threes instead of pairs. Course will also have more running than most NMCX series races. 11:45AM start will do an abbreviated easier course, which will be suitabe for beginners. All others will do a longer course. Course will be a mix of surfaces, park grass, pavement, dirt, gravel and ungroomed grass. Course will be in the same general area as the Glorieta course last year, but will be on a very different course. We will not do the rocky upper section from last year and will try to avoid rocky sections as much as possible. We will use the grass section from last year. Map will be posted here later.
Entry fees: Adults $30, Espoirs, Collegiate, Full time students, Out of towners* $20, Juniors free even if they race adult categories. Day of event registration add $10.
If you get in touch with me well before hand, I might be able to find some guest housing. Registration closes 15 mins before each start.
*If you can prove that you drove more than 3 hours to race, you can race for $20.
Online Registration: We will use Google Forms for registration. It does not cost anythihng to preregister/ You will need to pay at the race even if you are preregistered, but all your info will already be entered, and we will have some idea of how many riders to expect. You will also save $10. To save time please print this form (coming) and fill it out before you come out. For the Old Fashioned Series you only need one form for the whole season, so you do only have to do a form at your first race. The TNCXs are under the same permit so if you did one of them you do not need a form. If you do not bring a form, you must fill one out first, and then get in line to pay and get your number. I have a card reader on my phone so you can pay with a card at the race.
If you are doing 2 races it will be an extra $5 per race.

Online registration will close on 10-20-17 at 11:59PM MST.
Directions: Glorieta is a church camp about 15 miles east of Santa Fe on I-25. It will say I-25 “north” because the interstate goes east and then north. After exiting go left across I-25, then left again to the gate. Follow signs to the staging area. You have to fill out a release form at the gate at Glorieta, so allow some extra time.
These will be insured through the Recreational Alliance of Cycling Enthusiasts, (R.A.C.E., bikerides.org). USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. Because of this, riders can accrue points for the NMCX series but not category upgrade points for USAC.
Feeding may be done anywhere on the course where it is safe to do so, regardless of raceday temperature. Riders may ride on the course to practice during other races but must stay out completely of the way. If someone complains about you not staying out of the way, you will start 20ft behind your field start. Faster juniors do not have to do the 12PM start and are welcome to race with watever group they want.
Approved helmets must be worn at all times when on a bicycle.
Scoring will be done like the TNCs so riders will be responsible checking in after their finish and making sure that they get scored. If you do not check in you will not be scored.
Weather: We will run these rain or shine, but promoter reserves the right to cancel or move the course in the event of severe inclement weather or other issues. Info will be posted on on this website and to the bike-racers list.
