For 2017, The Rock Crit and Gran Fondo, presented by American Rock Salt, will bring a few changes that are sure to improve your race day, including a revolutionary new payout system (see details below), a Cat 5 Women's solo field, a new Cat 3/4/5 Women's field, and solo fields for Juniors and Masters.
Our new field structure will allow all racers Cat 3-5 (both men and women) to race twice, and as always, a second race is just $10.
NEW PAYOUT SCHEDULE
We are excited to announce a new payout schedule for this year's race, one that we believe will revolutionize the way events handle cash awards. Under our new system, men and women receive equal payouts while allowing for larger, more competitive fields to grow their pots through higher registration numbers.
Each field with prize money will offer a guaranteed minimum payout for 20 or fewer racers. That payout then increases in an escalating format, paying more for each racer that enters that field until the field is maxed out.
All numbers for final payouts will be based on online reg numbers only. Day-of racers will not be calculated.
See the breakdown below on how to max your fields, and max your payouts!
