- Wear your race numbers to the right: 1 on the right hip, and one sideways on the right shoulder. (Like every other road race this year)
- Cash prizes for every category based on entry
- Know the race course beforehand and follow race marshal’s directions
- Please notify chief commissaire of any DNF
- Single event licenses will not be available
- Parking at the finish line severely restricted to race vehicles only.
- Feed zone will be marked halfway between hwy 766 and 761 east bound after the far west turn around.
Race Organizers and Commissaires reserve the right to alter the course finish/ feed zones as needed to ensure rider’s safety.
Cash and Provincial Medals will be awarded after the race at the Rainy Creek Community Hall.
Please park on the range roads immediately preceding the hall, on one side of the road only. There is a limited area at the hall for staging riders and such. Do not park on Rainy Creek Road.
The race will offer water, pop and snacks for riders, volunteers, spouses, and commissaires before and after the race. However, riders are asked to bring enough food for their race.
For the post ride meal: For discriminating diners, try Letos in Lacombe on Hwy 2A just south of Hwy 12 or the Smugglers Inn in Sylvan Lake. For the non-discriminating eaters, try Tim Horton’s; either town.
Please ride safely at all times. An anonymous race in the middle of nowhere is no reason to get run over, and please thank at least one volunteer during the day. The Alberta race scene is getting smaller every year, so please enjoy the race and think about how you can give back to the sport next year.
