May Champion Thursday Series
We are going to run the first Thursday Nighter series as a Timed Stage Race.  Each stage will be an individual race too, so you don’t have to compete for the overall General Classification(GC), you can race just one stage if you would like.  If you are competing for a place on GC you have to complete every stage.

Each Stage will be timed and a total time for the overall GC will be kept.

Stage 1. May 4: B Race is 10 lap Circuit race.  A Race is a 15 lap Circuit Stage 2 & 3 on same night

Stage 2. May 11: A & B Race 1 ½ lap Eddy style time trial.  On Road Bikes no TT bars allowed.

Stage 3. May 11: B Race 10 Lap Circuit A Race 15 lap Circuit

Stage 4. May 18: B Race 10 lap Circuit race A Race 15 lap Circuit

Stage 5. May 25: Finish at top of Drag Strip B Race 10 lap Circuit A Race 15 lap Circuit.

New for all races this year we are putting in a free lap for flat tires.  If you get a flat and can get to a pit and change your tire before the group you were with comes back around, you may rejoin the race with that group without going a lap down.  This will be in place until 4 laps to go.  If you get a flat inside of 5 laps to go you must change your tire and chase back on.
A lapped rider hast to stay off the back of the pack and can not be apart of any break a ways or sprints to the finish. They may not be apart of any team tactics either.

Please use the same bib numbers from week to week. We will program the RFID chips to use the bib number that you register with. You can take home the chips and use them for the whole series but just let us know. If you do not return those chips when you are done we will have to charge you for the RFID chip and bracelet.

Schedule is subject to change.
