IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE COMPLETING AN ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR CROSS-COUNTRY TEAM RELAY NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Per the 2018 Cross-Country National Season Guidelines:

6.8 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS – CROSS COUNTRY TEAM RELAY

6.8.1 At the 2018 MTBA National Championships, a Team Relay will be run. Teams will consist of four riders of the following make-up:
a. One rider aged under 19 at the eligibility date;
b. One rider eligible to compete in a Masters 3 or higher category at the 2018 MTBA Cross-Country National Championships – that is, aged 40 or over at the eligibility date;
c. One rider eligible to compete in a women’s category at the 2018 MTBA Cross-Country National Championships;
d. One rider on which there are no restrictions (‘Open’).

 6.8.2 A rider filling the criteria of points 6.8.1 (a) or 6.8.1 (b) may not be entered in an Elite XCO category, or have competed in an Elite XCO category in an event of the 2018 Cross-Country National Series.

 6.8.3 Where an individual meets more than one of the above criteria, they may only consider one criterion as being satisfied. A distinct different individual must fill the role of each criterion.

 6.8.4 The team relay will have each rider complete a single lap, for a total race distance of four laps per team.

 6.8.5 When riders transition, they must make physical contact to ‘tag’ the next rider to begin a lap. If this is not possible, or might cause a potential accident from needing to cut across to the other side of the track, the next rider out may be considered ‘tagged’ if the transitioning riders are both stationary and level such that no advantage is deemed to be received.

 6.8.6 MTBA will facilitate the formation of teams at the event for riders who wish to ride, but have been unable to find a complete team.
