Parking, Food and Other Venue Amenities:
Loretta Street is a rustic private road in a residential area. Parking is available at the top of the hill -- space permitting. Once that is full, please find a spot to park on the surrounding streets. We will provide lunch for racers on site Saturday and Sunday. Please bring any other supplies with you each day as the closest food or mini-mart is one mile away. Porta-potties will be available on site both Saturday and Sunday. There is little natural shade or seating available so please plan accordingly.†

Racers will self-proclaim division (Pro, Am, Masters, Women, Jr) upon sign-up to coincide with their ISSA ranking history for point awards based on event finish results. Self-proclaimed Pro Division will compete in the Pro Division in all events and ride the "A" course whenever a choice is available. All other self-proclaimed divisions -- Masters, Amateur, Women, Junior -- will qualify for an A or B Class grouping for Hybrid head-to-head racing eliminations on Saturday. Sunday's Tight Slalom event will offer two courses - "A" and "B". Pro Division/Class racers must race the "A" Tight course and all other divisions will be allowed to choose either A or B course. The B Tight course option will offer a lesser degree of difficulty than the A course and will in turn rank a lower result for that racer in the overall standings for the event. All racers will run the same course for Sunday's single lane Giant Slalom event. Class division cutoffs will be determined prior to the race based on total # of entrants and details of the lane choice option will be addressed at the riders meeting.
