Cat 1 and Pro riders under 50 must do the 4 lap race, cat 2 riders may do either but they would probably have more fun in the open race. We will have some merchandise prizes for the 4 lap race, but only something small like chocolate as prizes in the 2 lap race. 

Course:
About 6 miles of lovely twisty bosque trails. I tried to pick the twistiest trails I could find to make a course that favors MTBs over CX bikes as much as possible. Probably the ideal machine is a rigid fork hardtail MTB with about 2.0 tires.  That is what I will ride. Second would be normal MTB. If you have a CX/gravel bike with nice fat 40-45mm tires that might be ok too. No rocks and virtually no climbing. There will a Tuesday race on 3/16 that will preview parts of the course. We will use the southernmost 2/3 of the trails between Bridge and Rio Bravo on the east bank of the Rio Grande. These are pretty much the most used trails by bikes in the bosque. You have probably ridden part of the course. There is a GPS track here.  The GPS starts and finishes at the Rio Bravo Trailhead, not the race start finish. I just parked there for the preride.       

BCD Racing Course Marking Conventions

Red and green pinflags will always be red-right and green-left. These will mark either side of the course. Always go between them with red on the right. If you start seeing green-right you are probably riding the course backwards. I will occasionally place red and green pinflags on either side of the course if it has been a while since there has been any trail marking. These may not be near any intersection. This is just to let you know that you are still on course.

Orange pinflags show where not to go, and are usually in lines of 3 or more.  They will be used to block off a trail that is not on course.  Do not go in between orange pinflags. Sometimes lines of course tape also show where not to go. Lines of tape and orange pinflags mean the same thing: Do not cross. 

Intersections will be marked with triangular yellow arrows. Also, just beyond the intersection, I will put up at least two sets of red and green disinflation either side of the course. Sometimes there will also be orange pinflags blocking entrances to  roads/trails not on course. 

Always default to the more trafficked trail or road. If you are on a major trail or road, stay on it, and do not get off on any smaller intersecting trails/roads. It is not always possible to mark every possible little trail intersecting a main trail or road.  If the course DOES get off a more trafficked road/trail onto a less trafficked road/trail, there will always be some marking indicating this.

Directions:
Coming from Albuquerque and points north: Exit I-25 on Bridge/Cesar Chavez, go west down the hill, over the tracks, and immediately left on 3rd. This will bend around to the left and put you out on 2nd by El Modelo Mexican Foods. Go right (south) .7 miles past the ballfields to the parking area. There is limited parking at the trailhead, so most riders should park between the ballfields and the trailhead on the west side of 2nd. Google Maps link here
Coming from points south, (or if you need a restroom on the way in): Exit I-25 on Rio Bravo, go west to 2nd and north about 2mi to the parking area. There are two convenience stores, one at Broadway and one at 2nd
 
General Info:
Not USAC and USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. Helmets are required. Aside from unrestricted feeding of riders, and allowing spare wheels and technical support at the start finish, this race will be run under USAC MTB race rules.

This is the tentative COVID specific plan for the time being revised 10/15/20:

1. Do not gather in groups of more than 10 at any point.

2. Start in small waves of no more than 10 riders. Waves will be about 75ft apart.  In the very unlikely event that riders catching from a later wave catch riders from an earlier wave and the the combined number of these riders coming together makes over five riders, we ask that they keep their groups separate, so that at no time do we have a group of over five riders together.   

3.  Start wave assignments will be based on series points or past finishing positions. Start wave assignments going to be posted Saturday evening. I will post signs for each wave to line up.

4. All riders must start in masks.  I have no way of controling what riders do while they are out alone in the woods. but riders should be advised that the state has mandated that masks be worn at all times outside of the home. If riders remove their masks they are at risk of fines by the state. 

5. I will work on should try to designing courses with minimal zigzaging so that riders do not pass by other riders in two-way sections. I will make the zigzags nice and wide where they are used.  I will also try to put difficult sections earlier in the course than normal, to break the riders up sooner. This is not normal CX course design.

6. Riders should wear masks when interacting with other riders or the promoters before or after the race.

7. Obviously if you feel sick or have any COVID symptoms, or feel that you may have been exposed to someone sick, stay home for a week or two.

8. No awards ceremony. I will post results to this site hopefully the next day. We might do some small prizes which I will hand out afterwards.

9. Signup online if at all possible. If you have to sign up a the race, wear a mask.
