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.

Starting 4/1/2021, Madera/Fresno/Kings countries enter the less restrictive Red Tier.


Equal pay and race time for Men and Women! Thank you Alta H2O and SoundWise!

Men Pro 1/2/3: $400 / $175 / $75
