About the CATEGORIES
The OPEN category is similar to a CAT 1/2 category in USA road racing. MEDIO category is similar to a CAT 3 wave and PICCOLO for newer racers. We also have a dedicated Men’s 40+ Age Group category. Each wave is riding in it’s own skill level. Each category gets to square off with an even slate and no outside interference.
Triathletes welcome in our Time Trial
This is a non-competitive USA Cycling permit, so USA Cycling licenses are optional. Riders in the omnium will score points in the top ten against others in their own category. But riders will be presented for top 3 podium photos in age groups and $100 VENMO to the fastest man and woman of the day in the 20k time trial.
