Riding Gear Requirements

          Helmets will be checked at registration – please have the certification sticker inside ready to show at registration.

Riding gear per our Rules/Gear page will be checked at pregrid as you queue for your ride group session saving you time and effort lugging your gear around.  Please help gear check personnel at pit-out to complete gear check-off to avoid delays.

Please take a moment to review your club information for track events to be sure you’re up to date.
