Cross Crusade Code of

Courses are marked by cones with Red on Right, Yellow on Left.

Pin your Official CC Race Number on your left side, in line with the jersey
side seam under your left arm. Place so that it can be read upright by the
officials when you are racing.

Each category has a number series: 100ís 200ís etc. You must have the
correct series number for each category you enter to be scored.

Ride only on the course or in approved areas. Do not ride on any
soccer/baseball/football or other sports field.

Ride on the course only during your race or during open course times. Do
not ride the course while a race is underway.

Park only in designated areas, do not block driveways or access routes. Be
aware that emergency vehicles may need access to the venue.

Be considerate:
Use the Porta Potties. Violators will be penalized.
Clean up your tent site, parking lot, and the expo area: carry all your
trash out.
Dogs, small children and Unicyclists must be on a short leash and under
Respect the officials, the staff, and the venue! We need them all!

Race hard, support your fellow Crusaders,

A bit on pit etiquette:
  • Put your pit wheels/bikes in the pit just before your race, get them out just after your race.  It can get REALLY tight in there and you probably don't want to chance someone walking on your wheels, tipping your bike, or even an addled person taking it for a ride accidentally.  There should be logical places to store bikes/gear nearby but out of the pit.  Ask the pit master if it isn't obvious to you.
  • Exit the pit on the same side you left it on.
  • If you use a neutral wheel/bike, get it back to the Shimano Pit as soon as you can after you are finished racing.
  • If you break down / need pit services after the pit entrance and BEFORE the beginning of the pit exit, you can go backwards the 30 feet to the pit entrance and enter.  Once you have passed the pit exit, to enter the pit you and your bike must traverse the course in a forward direction until you reach the next pit entrance.  Do not cut the course, do not go in the exit.
  • Be considerate of your fellow racers, officials and support staff - if you have a question either ask the pit referee or the Shimano Pit master.  They are very wise in the ways of the pit.
  • Put your name on your gear - a business card in the spokes, a baggage tag on the bike, sharpie on a velcro tie for wheels, hand lettered gold leaf - whatever will let the finder know whose it is and how to get it back to you.
  • It is just a race.  Try not to kick, pinch, bite, throw, or otherwise act belligerent to other racers or your gear.  It is just a race.  Have fun and race.

Can any category use the neutral wheel/bike?

I'll be riding my mtn bike, so I'm assuming that you won't have wheels that will work for me, how does the netural bike work?

Neutral pits have "common" wheel sizes.  In cross, that usually means mostly 700c, but if you are worried, stop by and say hi to the mechanic in a lull and ask. 

Feel free to use a neutral wheel (with the pit master's o.k./help), but be sure to get it back after your race so that it will be available for the next race!
