Eldo Crits are mass start races arranged by categories (Juniors, Cat 4/5, Masters, Pro/1/2/3).
Racers are identified as Category 5 (entry level)
Cat 4, Cat 3, Cat 2, Cat 1, Pro, Masters 40+, and Juniors (under 18).
Sorry, no separate Womens' categories.
3 sets of 8 week series.
Each race is 30 minutes for Juniors, 40 minutes for Cat 4/5, and 60 minutes each for Maters and Pro/1/2/3. Cat 4/5, Masters and Pro/1/2/3 races run simultaneously, but separated on the course. Awards are presented to the top finishers at the end of each 8-race series.
Eldo Time Trials
6 races per series.
Racers are lined up slowest to fastest.
Each rider starts individually, in 30 second intervals.
On the sixth lap each racer rides through the finish cones to stop the clock.
Juniors race for 3 laps only.
This is a solo effort. Drafting is not allowed.
This is an especially good race for beginners. You don't jockey for position with other riders. You get your own time that you can try to beat in future races. You can compete for your personal best or against a friend's time.
Awards are presented to the top finishers at the end of the 6-race series.
