Licence Requirements for 2021

Licensing is confusing. It does not help that every year the licences change. The insurance requirements change and it all starts again…..WHICH LICENCE DO I NEED TO RACE?

  1. If you are only going to do a couple of COTR races (We strongly encourage you to race them all) but you don’t want to buy any license. You are racing COTR races ONLY. Pay for a Day of Race licence each time you race $12 (Subsidized by COTR to $10) for an adult. $5 for youth. This is OK if you are only going to race once or twice a year and you are NOT going to race Provincials and you are NOT going to race National Champs in Langford this November.
  2. Buy a “Provincial Cycling for All License” from Cycling BC. $80. This works if you are racing the LAUNCH category (Beginners/Youth/Sport) races at COTR. If you are going to race 6 or more cyclocross events this year this is your best bet but ONLY if you are ONLY going to race Cross on the Rock this fall. You can not race other events or the provincial championships with this license.
  3. Buy a “Provincial Race License” from Cycling BC.Adult $120. Youth $75 Get this one if you want to race COTR as well as in Vancouver and Provincial Championships. You can race any category in the province.
  4. Buy a UCI license (Cost currently reduced $65-$120 depending on age) if you want to race Cross on the Rock AND a BIGGER race such as UCI races or National Championship in Langford. You need a UCI race to race National Champs.

EVENT AND SERIES RULES

  • Good sportsmanship and fair play are our number one rule! Bad behaviour and bad language are not welcome at our events. You get 1 warning and then you are gone for the season.
  • These races are designed to be fun “club” level events. This is not to say that they will not be challenging or competitive BUT we are not as serious as some other events out there.
  • Encouraging other participants is great. Discouraging other participants is not great
  • Riders must posses a current Cycling BC license or pay for a one day Cycling BC license ($10 at our events).
  • All events are open to any type of bike; road, mountain or cross. A cross bike should be your first choice followed by a mountain bike….road bikes will not enjoy our courses…
  • Some UCI cyclocross bike rules do not apply in our events. Run any tire width you like, flat bars are fine….if you have any questions please let us know.
  • Call up at the first series event is RANDOM to give everyone an equal chance of getting the front line and also making it so you don’t have to go to the line so early. From event #2 onwards call up will be based on series points for those ranked and then random for all remaining racers.
  • All riders will finish on lap following the leader finishing the race. You can never be more than a lap behind.
  • Other than these specific rules regular cross rules and common sense will dictate everything else.
  • The race organizer and or official have the final say in everything!
  • At Cross on the Rock events racers are not pulled if they are lapped by the leaders of their event. All racers finish on the lead racer’s lap so you are never more than one lap down nor do you race much longer than the leader of your race. IF you do not finish the race you will receive a DNF (and no points).

RESULTS

  • Points will be given out in to all participants in each category. If you move up from intermediate or masters to open during the year you will retain 50% of your points.

  • Points are distributed as following: 200, 190, 185, 180, 175, 170, 168, 166, 164 continuing down to 2.
