Some Rules to Remember
Any rider who intentionally rides on the left side of the centre line in order to gain advantage is in violation of the centre line rule.
You must also stay to the right of the cones in the middle of the road along the course. Cones will used to delineate the acceptable lines in all corners and in any curves with limited visibility.
Please remember that the races are run on open roads and there will be on coming traffic in the other lane. Crossing the centre of the road (yellow line no) or beyond the cones is exceptionally dangerous to both yourself and the other people you are racing with.
The only times that is it acceptable to break this rule is when a rider is pushed over the centre line by riders beside them (and re-enters without gaining advantage).
If you are observed violating the centre line rule you may be pulled from the race and receive a Yellow Card. A Yellow Card may also be issued if multiple riders state that one individual has broken the centre line rule. If a rider with a Yellow Card is observed to violate the centre line rule they will be expelled from all remaining Spring Series races.
You will get a race number (“bib”) and a timing chip at the first race, and you will keep it for use in the Spring and Sportif series throughout the year. Bring it each time you race: replacement numbers and chips cost $5 (number swap due to category change is free, but you have to turn in your old number).
Any of these offences are grounds for disqualification and banning from future races. Don’t be the person we decide to make an example of.
Step 0. Pre-reg!
You can pre-register for your chip and bib online. That lets you save $5 and some time at your first race. You still have to sign up for each race; pre-reg will open at least 2 weeks before each event.
Step 1. Sign-on
Sign-on opens at 9:30 AM sharp.
These races are classified as Club Events with Cycling BC with an additional insurance rider. As such people require one of the following licenses to race.

Bib fee is a one-time fee for your race number & timing chip; this also covers you for WTNC later in the year.
Pre-reg cut-off is 23:59 Wednesday before each race weekends.
