example, road hill climbs, mtb relays, pump track heats, etc.)

2. ENTRY

2.1. Entry Fees. All race entry fees must be paid prior to the start of the first
race of the event. For a race, the individual entry fee may be no more than the
following:

Race Entry Fee


RR $14.00
Crit $14.00
ITT $14.00
TTT (per team) $28.00
XC $13.00
DH $13.00
DS $13.00
STXC $13.00

2.2. Preregistration. In order to ease on-site registration processes, the


SECCC will be requiring that each school send in a projected registration by the
Friday night before a race weekend. The intent of this is not to exclude racers
whose plans change before race day; rather, this allows the promoting school to
be more prepared on race day. Racers can change plans prior to race day
registration; however, this must be communicated to the promoter before
commencement of the race.

2.3. Race Numbers. Race numbers are initially purchased and provided by
the SECCC, and are to be used for the entire season. Each promoter will
reimburse the conference for numbers based on percentage of total cost
distributed to each promoter. In the event of an upgrade or downgrade, new race
PA
numbers will be provided. Homemade replacement race numbers are not
allowed. The Conference Director or person designated by conference staff will
transport numbers to each SECCC event venue for registration purposes.

3. SCORING

3.1. A maximum of 10 riders from each team can register per race per
category. The coach or team president is responsible for monitoring this in
advance. Conference Director, Race Officials, and promoter hold the right to
enforce maximum rider stipulation. The top 4 scoring riders from each team
carry points towards the team omnium and the remaining riders up to 10, hold
placing for individual points only and do not translate to team points. If a race has
commenced and greater than 10 riders per team are found to be participating, (1)
additional riders are disqualified, (2) the rider surrenders any individual points
earned, (3) the team incurs a 20 team point deduction for the 1st offense, and (4)
team incurs a 40 team point deduction for the 2nd offense.

3.2. SECCC Team Points - Race. SECCC team points for an event are
calculated according to the following procedure:

1. Sum the individual points for the highest four placing riders (or the
single highest placing TTT team for TTT races) for each team for each womens
category (WA + WB) from a single race;
2. Rank the aggregated individual womens points from every team
separately by division (DI or DII);
3. Assign the corresponding point value to the ranked womens
teams from the Team Points table below;
4. Repeat the above steps for the mens categories;
5. Sum the mens and womens team points for the team total for the
race;

Note: if no individual rider earns individual points for a given race,


that team is not ranked for the race, and thus does not earn any
team points for that race.

3.3. SECCC Team Points Event. The team point total and rank is
determined by the sum of all womens and mens team points awarded for each
race of an event.

3.4. SECCC Overall Team Points and Rank. SECCC overall team points are
the sum of all team points earned from the beginning of the current season to the
present. The overall team rank is determined by ranking the SECCC overall
team points by division (DI or DII).

3.6. SECCC Road Individual Omnium. The SECCC will count the best races
for half of the regular season events (rounded up) offered in each discipline (RR,
Crit, ITT), plus Conference Championships for the final Individual Omnium.
Regular season is defined as all races not including conference championships.

3.7. Road Nationals Team and Individual Qualifier Points and Rank. National
team and individual qualifier points for a race are calculated according to the
same procedure explained in Rules 3.1-5 above, but using only individual points
earned in A category races. In addition, points are calculated as the sum of half
of half of the regular season events offered in each discipline (RR, Crit, TTT),
PA
plus Conference Championships for the final Nationals team and individual
qualifiers. If the conference offers an odd number of regular season events (ie
5 RRs or 3 TTTs), the number is rounded down (ie if half is 2.5 races, then 2
count towards Nationals). Regular season is defined as all races not including
conference championships. For both D1 and D2, the 1st and 2nd place teams in
the Omnium will be granted team spots (6 RR spots/4 Crit spots for 1st, 4 RR
spots/3 Crit spots for 2nd) to attend Nationals. The remaining spots will be divided
amongst individual qualifiers.

3.8. SECCC Mountain Bike Individual Omnium. Separate Gravity and


Endurance Omniums will be maintained for each category and each sex within
the SECCC. The SECCC will count the best races for half of the regular season
events offered in each discipline (XC, STXC, DH, DS, ITT), plus Conference
Championships for the final Individual Omnium. If the conference offers an odd
number of regular season events (ie 5 XCs or 3 DHs), the number is rounded
down (ie if half is 2.5 races, then 2 count towards the omnium). Regular
season is defined as all races not including conference championships.

3.9. Mountain Bike Nationals Team Qualifier Points and Rank. National team
qualifier points for a race are calculated according to the same procedure
explained in Rules 3.1-5 & 3.8 above, but using only individual points earned in A
category races. Nationals team qualifier overall points are the sum of half of the
regular season events offered in each discipline (XC, STXC, DH, DS, ITT), plus
Conference Championships for the final Nationals Team Qualifier. If the
conference offers an odd number of regular season events (ie 5 XCs or 3
DHs), the number is rounded down (ie if half is 2.5 races, then 2 count towards
Nationals). Regular season is defined as all races not including conference
championships.

3.10. Cyclocross National Qualifier. Since 2009 marks the first SECCC
cyclocross season, the baseline will be set that the rider needs to start two or
more regular season races, or one regular season race and conference
championships, in order to qualify to compete at Nationals.

3.11. Individual Points and Standing. Individual points do not carry over to
another category if a rider upgrades or downgrades. Only points earned in
individual races are included in the calculation of individual overall standings.

3.12. Primes. Prime sprint points count toward individual overall standings.

3.13. Road Time Trials. Any race weekend that holds an ITT must also
support a TTT concurrently. However, any race weekend that has a TTT does
not need to hold an ITT event.

3.14. Conference Championships. 1.5x points are awarded to all riders and
teams at the SECCC Conference Championships.

3.15. Mountain Bike ITT scoring.

4. DISCIPLINE 20 1

4.1. Misconduct. For illegal, grossly unsportsmanlike, or other behavior


unbecoming to the sport of cycling committed by an individual, the individuals
team will be penalized 20 team points for the first infraction of a member of that
team, 100 team points for the second infraction by a member of that team, and
team disqualification for a third infraction by a member of that team. For actions
that are not Illegal or otherwise DQ-worthy offenses, a warning shall be issued.
Penalty-worthy incidents include, but are not limited to, grossly unsportsmanlike
conduct, vandalism, public nudity, public urination, reckless driving, or any illegal
behavior. Incidents should be reported directly to the presiding USA Cycling
official or SECCC conference staff.

4.2. Conference fee collection. Upon confirmation to host a conference event,


event promoters are required to submit a promoter fee of $50 per race with a
maximum of $200 per weekend that will be collected within 2 weeks of the
completed event for the mountain bike season. For road events, an additional $1
will be collected per individual per race (for ITTs, RRs, and Crits) for conference
fees in place of the $50 promoter fee per event during the mountain bike season.
The monies will be compiled in a conference account to be further used for
conference purposes as decided by conference vote at annual conference
meeting. Monies must be spent at the end of year due to tax issues.

4.3. Race Promotion reliability. Race promoters are responsible for


permitting and notifying the conference of event details in a timely fashion. All
USA Cycling fees and surcharges apply to permitting. Draft flyers are to be
submitted to the conference for posting on the website 6 weeks before the event
(when the flyer is sent to USA Cycling along with all of the proper permits).
