Important: Make sure your USAC Race License is Active before coming to Reg! If it says Pending or Inactive, take care of that in advance of race day. Only Active Licenses will receive their bib number.


Wear masks when not racing and practice social distancing when possible. Minimize gatherings before and after racing. Hand sanitizer and extra masks will be available at registration.

By registering online with BikeReg, you have the opportunity to electronically sign the USA Cycling waiver. This negates the need for a wet signature and further encourages a contact-less registration process.

The course is located in Chowchilla, CA in an undeveloped housing complex. Exit Robertson Blvd off of Highway 99 then go South behind the new Save Mart shopping center.

The categories and schedule was carefully selected to give multiple opportunities for most people to race.
