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. There will be a 15 rider minimum for this event. I have a card reader on my phone so you can pay with a card at the race. Online registration will close at midnight on 3/28/19. Links to Registriation will be below when ready.

Directions: Take I-40 east from Albuquerque about 6 miles to the Tijeras exit, the road will "Y" right off the exit. Go right. (Left takes you to Sandia Peak) The road will curve to the right and come to a stoplight. Go striaght past the stoplight to a fire station. This will be Public School Rd. Go right down to the start. Closer parking places will be reserved for the pickleball (gym tennis) people. There will be signs showing this.
Course: A 2.5-3 mile circuit, with single track alternating with dirt or paved road so riders can pass. Classic course that has been used for numerous Tuesday Night races. Several short hills per lap. Trails are smooth or a little rocky, running through the Pinon and Juniper woods behind the school. Expect a few technical parts. Beautiful venue between the Sandia and Manzano Mts. This map is pretty close to the course we will use. We are going up on First Baptist Tijeras' land for the first time in a while. This is the SE corner of the course. This required making a little new trail, but adds some climbing and length to the course.
This is not a USAC race but will be held under USAC mtb race rules. Juniors must race the combined junior start to be eligible for NMORS points or the junior overall competetion. However if they wish they may race with the older men in thier respective category, and be eligible for the overall prizes if they race cat 1, but not NMORS points. Omnium points will be
9th and all other finishers 2
Ties will be decided by finish in Sunday's stage.
No prizemoney, maybe some small merchandise prizes (burritos?) Any prizes will be for the omnium overall only. On the positive side, this is the cheapest race in the NMORS series.
What is this $5 administrative fee business?
Starting in with the 10/2/18 race, I will be charging a $5 once per year fee for any Hawke Races. So you pay the $5 at the first Hawke Races event and you do and need not do so again until the beginning of my next insurance year, which will be the beginning of October 2019. This will include Tuesday or weekend races.
I buy my insurance per rider per year. So someone who shows up and does NMCX race or one crit costs me about $5. Someone like Eric Mease who does like 20 races, also costs me $5 for all the 20 races he does. My insurance costs went up about 40% this year as I had a lot of riders that just did one event. So instead of raising entry fees, I feel that this system adds a slight incentive for riders who do several of my races. Also I think it is fairer, as it charges the riders in proportion to the way I get billed.
