Your team decides how many laps each person does…one or a whole bunch. So bring your camping gear, bike gear and whatever else will keep you going for 24 hours... then come on out and get dirty with us!

Five person teams are automatically coed and must include at least one female rider.

These categories include combined ages under 0-149, 150-200, and 200-249, 250+. The corporate team category will consist of six to ten riders with no male/female restrictions. Corporate teams need not necessarily have sponsorship. Police/Fire/Military Team must provide proof of service. All registered team riders in the corporate and Police/Fire/Military category must complete at least one lap.

The course will consist of a 17-mile loop including a bunch of single track. The trails for this course have been designed specifically for 24 hour desert racing. Bring your water!

The race will have a Lemans style start and utilize a baton hand off between completions of laps. Each team captain must verify that each team members name has been registered on the log in / log out sheet by 11:30am on Saturday.

STARTING PROCEDURE

Start time for the race will be at 12:00pm on Saturday. The race will utilize a Lemans style starting procedure. The Lemans style start is preferred, because it ensures a safe and exciting method for starting a large number of riders. It consists of having all the riders line up at the starting line, at which time a pistol is fired. The riders will then run a designated 600-yard course (approx.) and to the bike racks to pick-up their bikes. The racers will then continue onto the racecourse. All starting riders must have their bikes pre-positioned in the bike racks and be logged-in prior to the start of the race. All riders on deck; those riders who are waiting for their teammate to complete a lap, must be logged into the manual timing sheet no later than 15 minutes prior to their teammates completion of the lap.

CHECK IN STATION

Each racer (includes soloists) must log in and log out at the check-in station located at the start / finish area (exchange tent). A team baton will be used and must be passed from the rider completing a lap to the registrar. The registrar will then record the login time and the baton will be passed to the rider logging out before that rider can begin his/her lap. Once the baton has been handed to the registrar, the rider has officially logged out. The logout time is the login time for the next rider regardless of whether or not that rider is present to receive the baton. If the rider is to continue on for another lap he or she must still hand over the baton to the registrar and have it handed back prior to beginning the next lap. If a rider fails to do this, only one lap will be recorded. Any team who lost their baton will receive a five-minute penalty. If a team cancels a rider's lap and is starting the lap over with a new rider, a new baton will be issued without a penalty. However, the team’s original baton must be returned to the registrar. The login time recorded for the rider failing to complete the lap will be used as the login time for the new rider. Teams should be sure that each rider is logging in and out correctly.

A rider who has entered the course must complete his or her lap. Rider substitutions can only be made at the check in station. In the event that a female rider on a five person team with only one female rider should have to withdraw from the race due to injury or illness, she must have completed two laps in order for that team to qualify. Should a team in another category lose a teammate for the entire race to injury of illness that team may continue to compete.

The Finish

The ending time for the race is 12:00 PM on Sunday. Any racer still on the course after 12:00 PM will log off after completing the lap. The final finishing places are to be determined by the total number of laps completed and the order in which each team completed the final lap. If a rider logs off the course prior to 12:00 PM and no other rider logs in to complete a final lap, that team will be registered as a "DID NOT FINISH".
