Are you race ready?

Online registration closes at midnight on Tuesday 2/28/17

Don't wait until race weekend to register. We'd rather have you out on the trails having fun and meeting some of the 400+ other racers from around our state. You don't want to waste your time standing in line, so get it done online before Tuesday the 28th and you'll make everything so much easier on race day at Sokol Park.

Don't know if you're all set?
Check your PitZone dashboard to see if your are "Race Ready".
If you're not showing a ' Yes' in the 'Race Ready' column, then you still have some work to do. (Did you know that if you hover the mouse over the red exclamation point next to your name, it will show you what you are missing?) So go now and take a few minutes to make sure all is good. Any questions, hit up your coach, your team manager or the league director.

To be 'Race Ready' and 'Race Registered' you must:

1. Be registered in the Pit Zone as a rider.
2. Registration payment must be received for NICA Fee, League Fee and Race Fee.
3. All e-waivers must be completed.

On-site registration is available Saturday 12:00-3:00 and Sunday 7:30 AM - 12:00 PM. A $10 late fee applies to race fees. You must register at least 60 minutes before your start wave if you are waiting until race day.
THERE IS NO ONSITE LEAGUE REGISTRATION. This means you can only pay/register for the race, but you must have completed the league registration process online.
