Not part of the New Mexico Cyclocross Series
Sunday, December 9, 2018
Because most of us are not going to nationals.
1PM all riders mass start. We will go for about an hour.
There will be a once per year $5 administrative fee for the first "Hawke Race" you do. Juniors are exempt. This will cover all Hawke Races events until October 2019. Explanation at bottom of this page.
Adults $18. U23 $9, Juniors $0 even if they race adult categories. Day of event registration add $10.
Registration closes 15 mins before start.
In a car: Exit I-25 on Rio Bravo and go west about a mile to 2nd. Take 2nd south about 1.6 miles to to Sunnyslope St. then go west (right) to Barr then go south (left) 300ft and park where you can without blocking anyone's driveway.
On a bike: take the bosque bike path south past Rio Bravo until just before it curves east following the diversion channel. Start will be up on the levee about 400ft north of the diversion channel.
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 6AM on 12/8/18.
Online Registration via Google Forms
List of Registered Riders
Course: 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 and hurdles may be less than 4M apart. Course will also have more running than most NMCX series races. Courses will be on gravel roads, dirt roads and trails, with maybe a little ungroomed grass.
These will be insured through bikeraces.org. USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. Helmets are required.
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. If weather looks dodgy, I make a call if we are on or not at 4PM raceday, this will be posted on the website and to the bike-racers list.
What is this $5 administrative fee business?
Starting in with the 10/2 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.
