SCORING

The Cascade Gravel Grinder will use Omnium Scoring. The event is made up of three separate rides that each has points awarded to the top 20 riders in each category. Friday’s time trial will be worth half the point value that Saturday and Sunday will have. The rider with the overall highest points from the event will be declared the winner. Since this is an omnium you do NOT have to complete all three rides however the more rides you do the more points you will receive if you place in the top 20 each day.

 

Tie breakers on points will be determined by who has the highest finishing place on Sunday’s race as that is the most challenging. Cash prizes will be awarded for the overall omnium for the Big Grinder and merchandise prizes for each day’s race and overall for the Small Grinder. 

 

Cash & Prizes will total $2,000!

Points are not interchangeable between the Small Grinder and Big Grinder categories. Awards are at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Village Green City Park.

TIMING

This ride is being chip timed. Results will be posted to the website immediately. Use your smart phone to check and see how you did. Timing chips are on bands that must be worn around your ankle (you can choose which one). We will have starting timing mat, and intermediate timing points along the route to assure no one cuts the course.

 

Look for a series of cones and a mat when out on course. The finish timing mats will be located at the end of the final gravel section and NOT back at where staging and parking was located. Make sure you roll over the timing mat so we can get your official time. You will also be given a bib number to wear on your right side.

 

Please ride respectfully back to the staging area upon completing your ride. That section is not a race!

 

All timing chips must be returned at the timing finish mat location.  Timing Chips: The timing chips used must be returned after you finish racing. The cost of an unreturned timing chip is $85.
