- Q: Why did you choose to use the USAC CAT system when most enduros (including the BME and NAET which you link to) do not? Why do only cat 1 riders get to ride all 5 stages? I do not hold a CAT 1 licence in XC or DH but want to race all 5 stages. We are racing Enduro, XC or DH rankings should not apply.
A: First year series, we will use USAC insurance and officials to assure a fair and safe event. Pro/Open is just that – open. The main goal in recommending CAT’d riders to race Pro or Amatuer age cat was to prevent sandbagging and XC racers getting in over their heads. Race what you’d like, race which category you’d like.
- Q: Do I need a lift ticket?
A: Yes, LIft tickets will need to be purchased for each event unless otherwise specified. All courses will start at or very near to the top of a lift.
- Q: How long will each event be?
A: Each event will have 3-5 runs so event durations will vary by which category you registered for. A 5 run event can run into the early afternoon so you’re looking at half a day for the entire event in that situation.
- Q: How long will each course be?
A: Courses will vary in length and terrain and can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes each.
- Q: How will seeding for the starts be done?
A: Self-select seeding for the first course and then after that it’s top 3 followed by self-select again.
