*Course may vary from week to week and mileage and laps posted here may change, but it is a good guideline as you’re selecting the class you’ll be participating in.
Choosing your class: New to racing? Not sure what class to race your first race? Here’s a quick guideline.
*MEN’S TRUE BEGINNER (OPEN- 16 yrs+)- This class is not scored for the series points….it is a TRUE BEGINNER CLASS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER RACED, or haven’t raced since the Banana seat on your bike was still the most comfortable and fashionable combo available.
KID’S RACE- (6-8 & 9-11 yrs)- 5:30pm start – $10 on-site registration only. Boys and Girls. *Note- parents if your child is 11 and you feel they are ready for 2 laps on the main course with the juniors, please talk with us. We will make exceptions, but only if we speak with you first.
JUNIORS CLASS- 11 years t0 15 years.
BEGINNERS CLASS- Recreational riders.New racers. You ride, but don’t usually race. Riding your local ride spot, you’re not exhausting yourself at 100% effort every ride, just to get faster. 10 miles is a long ride for you.
SPORT CLASS- You’ve either raced before, or ride hard when you ride your local spot. If a couple hour ride, with a decent amount of climbing makes you cringe, think about racing as a beginner. Sport Class adds approx 4 miles to the Beginner Class, so plan on racing for approximately 11 miles.
SUPER SPORT- A step between the Sport & Expert Classes. We have a lot of fast Sport riders who have considered to moving up, but the step to expert is pretty major. So we’ve created a new class as an intermediary between sport and expert. Super Sport will run 3 laps, and be an Open Age Class. All of you fast sport riders… this is the new class for you.
SINGLE SPEED CLASS- You ride a single speed bike! Women and Men open.
EXPERT CLASS- Typically race CAT 2 or CAT 1 at other races. This class is fast with 4 laps for experienced and accomplished racers.
- NOTE: Over the Hump is a recreational race, based on the guiding principle: HAVE FUN. We run on the honor system, as you choose your class. If the Race Directors determine you are incorrectly classed you will be reassigned to an appropriate class based on your skill level.
- Points are accumulated for the races scored in each specific class. Points are not transferred if you change classes mid-season.
- AGE: Your age group is based on your age during the season May 25-Aug 27. If your birthday will change your age group mid-season you may choose either of the age groups.
