A, B and Women's Open Race
 The 50 mile event will be run true CX style.  For the 50 mile race, the race is over once the race winner is finished (all racers will complete their current lap).  Therefore, if you stay on the lead lap you will ride 50.  If you are lapped twice, you will be finished at about 38 miles. A countdown lap counter, that will be adjusted with the race leader, will be at the start/finish to help you know where you stand.  All racer will be credited with finishing the race even if they finish one lap or all 8.  We will post number of laps (miles) and finishing time.  The short race will be 3 laps for all entered.

C Race
           This division will be a 3 lap race (approx 19 miles). This will bring you through the transition at 10k and 20k prior to your finish at 

Aid Station: 
           Located near the completion of each lap, we will have a water station set up.  This will be a place where water can be refilled and bottle hand-ups will be allowed (bring a friend or teammate to hand you your stuff).  We will not have volunteers there to give hand-ups, so you should bring support if you will need assistance with water refills.
