Rules & Regulations

All racers must attend racers meeting. The 3 Hour mountain bike race will start at 9:30 am. Unless otherwise announced in the racers meeting the race will be a mass start.

 

As you approach the pit area you may stop in your pit area. Once each racer approaches the timing/finish area:

 

1. Each rider must dismount off of the bike and run or walk across the timing mat. (failure to do so may result in DQ)

 

2. Each racer must have the number plate mounted and visible on the front of the bike.

 

3. Once you cross through the timing area you may get back on the bike and continue back out on the course or teams may exchange the timing chip within the designated transition area. (all chips must be exchanged within the transition area, failure to do so may result in DQ)

 

Racers may ride as many laps consecutively as they wish. Each racer must ride a minimum of 1 lap during the 3 hour period. All laps must be completed by 12:30 p.m. or they will NOT count. The 3 hour race winners will be the racers that have tallied the most laps at the end of the 3 hours in the fastest time.

 

*All racers may assist other racers. No outside assistance at any point within the time limits of start to finish of the race.

 

Novice Class

3 Hour Point Series Rules/Information

Chain Buster Productions is using a point system to reward the top 2014 series finishers in each category. The Chain Buster Endurance Points Series will be tracked/recorded by our staff throughout the 2014 calendar at each race. In order to qualify for the Championship Points Series, all 3 hour racers (team or solo) must race a minimum 3 out of 4 race events.

 

Each person that registers and completes a minimum of 1 lap in ALL available races for a series will receive 5 bonus points that will go towards the final series points. Bonus points will be awarded at the series finale of each series and added to the racers total points.

 

If there is a race cancellation within a series, the races must register and compete in the series finale and complete a minimum of 1 lap to receive his/her series bonus points.

 

Unless otherwise posted, races will be held according to schedule. The safety of all racers is our main priority.

 

If the race is canceled due to inclement weather, the points for that race will be made up at the series finale. If you were registered for a race that was canceled due to inclement weather, you must register for the series finale and complete a minimum of 1 lap in the series finale to receive points for the canceled race. The points for the series finale will be awarded using our regular points scoring system. We will then take your score from the series finale and double it to account for the canceled race.

 

All race t-shirts for the canceled race will be handed out at registration for the series finale. Race cancellation will be posted on the home page of www.chainbusterracing.com beginning up to 72 hours prior to the event until 8 pm the Friday before the race.

 

Going into 2014 we are working to make the series points simple to keep up with for both the racers and Chain Buster Productions. In order to qualify for the Championship Points Series you must race in at least 3 of 4 races in the same discipline/category/teams--must consist of the same people no alternates. At the end of the series if you have raced a minimum of 3 out of 4 races to qualify for the series we will then take your best 3 scored races for your total. If there is a tie at the end of the series in any category we will determine winner by most over all laps completed in the series- if there is still a tie we will determine winner by most laps completed at the series finale. If there is still a tie then fastest overall time at the series finale.

 

Clarification on the cancellation of The 3 Hour Flatrock Challenge as it affects the points for the RecreationAle Series:

Those that pre-registered for The 3 Hours of Flatrock Challenge will get the same placement (points) they receive in the series finale. For example, get 3rd at the series finale, and retroactively get 3rd place points for the 3 Hours of Flatrock Challenge. This gives the racers that pre-registered for the 3 Hours of Flatrock Challenge 4 races to choose their 3 best scored races for their total score in the series. The people that did not pre-register for the 3 Hours of Flatrock Challenge will just have the remaining actual 3 races to score from.

 

The 5 point bonus for doing all "available" races now will just be 3 races in order to receive those points, not 4 races.
