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 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. The results posted onsite may show a time penalty instead of being down a lap, but will be adjusted for the final results.

 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 5th race. No transfers with points will be allowed after the 5th event. After transfering, 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, 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.

 Individual Event Awards

We will be awarding medals for First, Second, and Third finishes in each category and division (as appropriate) at each 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:

We are working on a team ranking similar to the Race Cascadia Cup system. A team leader needs to be designated, and Deanna needs to know who this is. This Team Leader will report to Deanna (via email), the Saturday, prior to the event, the 5 participants (including name and bike number -if known) from their team who will be the ones the points are taken from. These people can change for each event, and there is no requirement for which categories the participants have to be in, as Cat1 podiums are worth more than Cat 2 and Cat 3 podiums. Should that person actually participate or not finish, the team gets no points for that entry. Since our scoring system already recognizes the different categories by the points, we do not need to adjust points. The team at the end of the points series, with the most points.

Pick your most reliable 5 members for that race.

If you are on a team, planning to participate, please get someone to email Deanna as the team leader, and list the participants for Swan Creek.

The database for the team competition is still being worked on, but it is happening this Sunday at Swan Creek.

 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 7 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 7 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.
