** bring weights for your team tents. no stakes in pavement**
Q: Are Team Competition racers still eligible for individual awards?
Q: Is there a maximim number of racers on a team?
A: No. but only the top 5 racers on your team will count towards your teams results time
Q: Will a slow teammates time affect the teams total time results?
A: No. the results scoring is only calculated from your teams top 5 finishers
Q: My team wants to enter riders in all three distance classes, can we do that?
A: Yes! Each distance team will need 5 minimum, one rider has to pay the Team Competition entry for each distance your team enters
Q: Can we use a stand- in from another team to meet the minimum or as a ringer?
A: NO! While it is going to be hard to police, it is illegal to use a fill in ringer from another team as a means to win the category. Lets all play fair here. I am sure other teams will self police this and your team could be called out, that would be embarrassing not to mention grounds for DQ
Q: Can we enter our tandem in the Team Competition?
A: No, tandems are an unfair advantage against solo riders
Q: We have 10 racers so can we have two teams if we made two captains and call one team “Hagerty Racing” and the other “Hagerty Cycling”?
A: If you put 5 into one mileage category and the other 5 in a different mileage category then yes. If you want to put both in one mileage category then no
Q: If a team had only 4 finishers out of 5 does the race total time of the remaining 4 count or is 5 the minimum to be counted?
A: A minimum of five must enter and a minimum of 5 have to finish. If you have 6 racers let’s say and one does not finish you still meet the minimum of 5 racers
Q: What about the categories (age, fat tire, single speed, etc.) are they based on place in category, or is it simply time?
A: the tabulation is based on time within the distance category, the subdivision classes someone uses does not matter
Q: Will there be a “team” start wave?
A: Unfortunately we can’t do that, they are still being scored as an individual as well and they all need to start in their individual waves otherwise they will be disqualified
