Tuesday CCC Updates

- Early edition… please read this post before pre-registering for races on BikeReg.com.

- Most races open for reg today at 9am on BikeReg with the exception of Campton, Melas Park Basin’ Racin, Indian Lakes, & Montrose. Our race directors still have to cross a few t’s and dot a few i’s on their USAC permits. We hope to open reg for all of these events soon. Yes, of course we’ll let you know here and on the twits.

- Please update your BikeReg rider profile with, at the very least, your USAC license number. No, pending is not a valid license number. Even if you are racing on a One Day license and had an annual USAC license in the past, make sure that number is in your profile. If you forget what your license number is, go here, and type in your last name, then a comma, then your first initial. This helps us out more than you can imagine. Thanks!!!

- Regardless of what nickname, team name, etc you use in BikeReg we match your license number to the information in the USAC rider database, so the place to make sure your team name is correct is there. Get on it!

- USAC added a Men Category 5 to CX this season, so if you have a Y chromosome and are brand new to CX you’ll be racing Cat 5. Masters, Juniors, and Single Speed are all open category, meaning anyone from Cat 1 to Cat 5 can race in these fields.

- The downside to the new Cat 5 is that if you raced as a Cat 4 last year on One Day licenses you’ll likely need to have an annual license this year. Please make it easier on everyone and apply for your annual license here on USACycling.org.

- Other USAC category related info is over on our Series Rules and FAQs page and in the USAC rulebook.

- Remember we stage by CrossResults.com points at Jackson Park. For the love of all that is green and good on this earth, please search for yourself on on CrossResults.com and make sure all of your results are there.

- Reg is open for Patriot CX .

- Reg is also open for the Trek CXC Cup in Waterloo, WI on 9/21 and 9/22. This is the former USGP Madison race (but a new venue) and just happens to take place the weekend before the CCC series kicks off in Jackson Park. Head behind the Cheddar Curtain, watch some pros, maybe get on TV, and prep yourself for our local series. Staging is done by order of registration.

- And finally… What’s the one thing about the CCC you can’t live without? We want to know! Please leave your comments below…

    I don’t see the 60+ category for Jackson park at BikeReg.com. Am I missing something?

      Hi guys. The 60+ are starting combined with the 50+ this year as we mentioned on the site way back here. You will still be scored separately for the overall.

    There is a waitlist for all events for the Cat 5. How can I race? if I somehow get a spot in the first race and manage to get a point, will I have a spot in the next races? I just want to race but I feel that the Cat 4/5 combo is full of Cat 4 racers that plan on doing two races that day.

  4. 09/05/2013 at 3:38 pm

    Nathan, the waitlist is closed because the cat 4/5 race is still open. There’s currently over 40 spots available. When it fills up, the waitlist opens.

    All the faces are in wait list status for 4/5 looks like I won’t be racing this season under these conditions sad day got me and a 60 license down the drain to stand by!

      All categories remain open, the waitlists are not yet open. Pre-reg Waitlists will remain closed for each category until that actual category has filled to its field limit. Once a category is filled the waitlist will open. When signing up for a waitlist you will not be charged until transferred into a race, if a spot opens up before pre-reg closes.

    People read the reg page. Waitlists are closed because the categories aren’t full yet. As of right now there about 30 spots left in the 4’s and 30 left in the 4/5’s.

    The comment griping begins early this year. I sense this will be the best year of comments ever.

    Where are the results for the races that haven’t happened yet? Oh, wait…..what? We’re not doing everything in reverse order? I just assumed because so many people were trying to get on wait lists before trying to register…..my fault. Sorry.

    What are the chances of getting in the women’s 1/2/3 if I get on the wait list for Jackson Park? I’d like to do this race but coming from Grand Rapids, MI, I need to make a decision b/t OVCX in Indianapolis and your race in Chicago…Chicago is closer and I have friends to stay with….Hoping to get in…

    For Jackson Park…the men 1/2/3 get their own field of 100 and have 55 signed up currently. Women 1/2/3 already have 42 signed up currently and I’ll make it 43… Can the women 1/2/3 have their own field of 100? Just equal opportunity to race. Thank you!

    Just **asking for** equal opportunity to race (:

  13. 09/18/2013 at 8:59 am

    Amanda – There’s currently no one else on the 50+ or W1/2/3 waitlists yet, so if one person from either of those races doesn’t show up, you’d be first to get in. As for a dedicated field, I can’t speak to the CCC race structure, because the schedule is set for the whole series, but in the past, it has rarely filled up. LOTS of new cat 3 women this season it would seem :)

    • Amanda Schaap

      Understood. But when would I know if someone didn’t show? Coming from MI – a 2.5hr drive, it’s hard to just go on a whim not knowing for sure that I’d get to race…

        Unfortunately unless a rider informs us ahead of time, we won’t know ourselves until 30 minutes prior to the start of the race.
