Rules & Regulations

View USAC Rulebook.

Event Specific Rules

Racers need to plan to support themselves with food/drink/tools. We will do our best to keep our water/Gatorade coolers filled.

Racers are required to use primary light, at least 200 lumens, either mounted on the handlebars or helmet, beginning at 1800. You must also have a secondary light source of any type (penlight, small flashlight, handlebar light, etc.).

All racers must state their bib # to race officials at the transition area when they end or start their lap.
If ending your lap state (# 45 off)
If beginning your lap state (#45 on)
If you do not state this we cannot guarantee that your lap time will be scored accurately.

The course has several technical shortcuts (log crossings) that may be utilized. Arrows on the course mark all technical shortcuts and the alternate trail. These shortcuts may cut a few seconds off your time, but have a higher risk of failure than the alternate course. *Choose wisely!

Mechanicals while on your lap - You must either backtrack on the trail to the transition area, where your lap will be incomplete, and a teammate may take your spot, or you can finish the course for a completed lap.

If you leaved the marked race course at any time, for mechanical reasons or otherwise, you will be disqualified.

Event Details

The event starts at 0900 and ends at 2100.

The event starts with a Le Mans start, approximately 0.2 mile run to bikes staged on the Kentucky lake scenic drive. Running surface is gravel/pavement.

New this year, all laps must be completed by 2100 in order to count. You can start any time up to the end of the event, but that lap will only be counted on the results if it completed before 2100.

You win by having the most laps in the fastest amount of time. If competitors have the same number of completed laps, the winner is chosen bases on the last lap's finishing time; earlier finish time (clock time, not lap time) wins.

Water/Gatorade coolers are provided, as well as miscellaneous food (cookies, trail mix, bananas, etc.).

Spaghetti dinner, usually around 1800, free to all participants and volunteers.

The Kentucky Lake Scenic Drive is closed to thru traffic from Friday night to Sunday morning. Camping is allowed. You may camp on the drive itself or in the parking lot/trail head, near the transition area. No cost to you.

Glow Light sticks availabe to customize your bike for after-hours.

Hang out by the fire after awards is over on Saturday or before the race Friday night.
