 Junior Shredders are our 10-12 year old kids ready to tackle bike racing but maybe not the full course quite yet.  Boys and girls all race together and have a blast.Lil Shredders are 9 and under and generally do a smaller course.  Parents are encouraged to get out and cheer for these guys and help them every now and then but make them work for it.

* NO WARMING UP ON COURSE DURING ANY RACE.
**Season plate holders: you only need to sign a waiver on your first race. You MUST initial next to your name at the designated registration area for every subsequent race. Our insurance will no longer accept the online waiver/check in system.
*** Absolutely no jumping in the race and “registering or signing your waiver” after the race. If your name is not on the Start list you will be pulled from the race.
****Pick your category wisely. The promoter reserves the right to upgrade at his discretion. (Sandbagging is not cool!). A dominating 5 minute gap Win over 2nd Place might be an indicator that you didn’t pick your Category wisely!  (Example: Any Beginner/sport riders that are consistently putting in Top 10 EX lap times will be asked to upgrade.) Points can be carried with you to your next category. But do not worry about that little detail. You just upgraded. Congratulations!
