A  Cross Country race runs longer, with the final racers starting by 11AM and the awards and race wrap up are by 12:30PM.  Refer to the specific race page for the exact start times for a race.

The race classes are in age ranges within three skill levels, expert/elite, sport and beginner.   The beginner class is geared towards the recreational rider and typically has the highest number of racers.  Each class also is segregated by Men and Women.  To encourage family participation at the races we also have a young kids race with ribbons for all participants.
