 COVID-19 Event Protocol

Per the Governor's guidelines as of January 11th, mass starts were not permitted, so we will be using a Time Trial start format for all events throughout the series, to be consistent. We will be having start times for the different categories, throughout the morning, but will allow families, who come together, to start around the same time. This means that for the most part, participants will be with their category, but there may be other category riders as well. There is more information on the BuDu Racing, LLC COVID-19 Safety Measures link above. Please read it over.


We will ask the following of all participants:

  1. If you are sick, or have any of the following symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, diarrhea, that you NOT participate
  2. If you have been in close physical contact (6 feet or closer) with a person know to have confirmed case of COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19, that you NOT participate
  3. DO NOT spit or blow your nose (snot rocket) while on course, or around others
  4. Mask MUST be worn pre and post event (you must bring your own)
  5. At all times you MUST maintain 6 feet social distancing whenever possible, and pass quickly while on course
  6. There will be NO day of race registration for any events, however, we will work with participants who register and are not able to participate when giving appropriate notice
  7. You will NOT be allowed to pre-ride the course the morning of, unless it is done prior to the first event start time
  8. You will be required to count your own laps, since we will be allowing riders from all categories to start as needed
  9. As a COURTESY to other riders, we ask that all participants NOT block riders, since no one will be starting at the same time, and there may be riders of all categories on the course at the same time

Please understand that this may be updated at any time as we watch for changes from the government.

***Also, please do not put us in the position of having to police your behaivor. Please follow the protocol. Thank you.***

We will be taking $1 from each registration and adding that to a pool for the series ending payout the bigger the numbers, the bigger the payout. The promoter reserves the right to change categories, places, and prize list based on participation. While this is not a USCF/NORBA event, rules will be enforced. This includes wearing a HELMET at ALL times when on your bike.

 

 Lapped Riders

If a participant is lapped at any time by the lead rider, you will finish on the same lap as the leader. On the final results it will indicate you are one lap down. 

 Transfers to a Different Category

Transfers to a different category, which means you are moving up a category, are allowed with points transferring, but must take place before the 6th race. No transfers with points will be allowed after the 5th event. After transferring, in order to be in contention to win a Series Placing, you must have competed in at least 3 of the category events you are placing in. 

If you transfer down a category or lateral within a category, your points will NOT transfer.

You can request to be transferred to a category by emailing Info@BuDuRacing.com or talking with one of the registration staff members.

 Series Information

Points are awarded to each finisher in each division and category at the completion of each event and are carried over to the next event. The final event will be a stand alone event and will not count towards series points. At the final event we will have the series ending podium ceremony. This way, people can review the results and let BuDu Racing, LLC know ahead of time if there is an issue that needs to be reviewed.

In order to be eligible for season ending prizes, you must participate in 5 of the 8 events. The last event is a stand alone race, with prizes of its own. This will help the series ending awards go more smoothly. If you participate in all 8 events (in the points series) or purchase a season pass, you will receive a series bonus of 15 points. Your accumulative series points will be a composite of your top five event finishes plus the series bonus (as applicable). Each participant who starts an event will automatically receive one point. If you want to change categories, you can, but you will need to remain in that category for the rest of the series (you can not return to the previous category). We have adjusted the series points to stay the same when transferring, as the lower category events have less points. You may not place in the series in more than one category.

Series ending awards will be presented at the final event. If you are not present to accept your award, it will be your responsibility to make arrangements to receive your award.

Below is the breakdown for placing and points:

We will be awarding medals for First, Second, and Third finishes in each category and division (as appropriate), however, due to COVID-19 guidelines winners can pick up at the following event. You need to pick up your medal, they will not be mailed.

 World Dominator Team Competition

Attn Teams for the West Side Mtn Bike Series:

A team leader needs to be designated, and Deanna needs to know who this is. This Team Leader will report to Deanna (via email), by NOON on the Saturday prior to the event, the 3 participants (including name and bike number -if known, if not Category) of their team members who will be the ones the placing is used for the competition. These people can change for each event, and there is no requirement for which categories the participants have to be in. Should that person actually not participate or not finish, the team gets no points for that entry. The points are based on the finish place, which are the same for all categories. The team at the end of the points series (does not include the last event) with the most points wins the World Dominator Team Competition.

Pick your most reliable 3 members for each race.
