Take note of the registration OPEN and CLOSING dates and times, you will need to register between those two dates.
IF YOU ARE A RANKED ATHLETE: Order of registration will not impact likelihood of an invite. As a ranked athlete, you may register at any time during the registration window, between 6 to 4 weeks before the event. Your ranking will dictate your likelihood of an invitation.
IF YOU ARE AN UNRANKED ATHLETE: Order of registration will dictate the order in which invitations are issued. If you hope to get into an event as an unranked athlete, we recommend signing up early during the 2-week registration period. Ranked athletes will be awarded invitations first; any remaining invitations will then be awarded to unranked athletes in the order in which they have registered.
If all waitlisted riders who registered during the 2-week period have been invited and invitations still remain, registration will be reopened. When invitations are extended by email, invited athletes have three days to withdraw their invitation or the credit card on file will be automatically charged for the registration fee and the invitation will be confirmed.
