比赛类别选择

凯尔索山地车系列赛的比赛类别选择

凯尔索为其比赛系列感到自豪,并希望确保你获得最佳体验。我们的每个比赛类别都列在下面,以帮助你选择合适的类别。

我们的建议是选择最适合你目前耐力和技能水平的类别。向上提升是可能的。我们已经提供了一些指导性因素来帮助。降级是可以做到的,但应避免。级别下降的骑手往往一开始就选择了错误的级别,或过早地提高了级别。理想的情况是,你选择一个你认为可以在其中进行竞争的类别。

New for 2024 is an additional race category; Intermediate. Intermediate will sit between Sport and Novice in terms of difficulty and complete 2 laps of the Novice Course. 

Sign up for the series (twelve races + finale event) and have access to as many races as you want, or sign up for individual races whenever you are available. We encourage everyone to sign up for the series as it’s such a great value and it makes signing in each week so much easier. 

REMINDER: Single racer registration closes the night before each race.

Racer safety and trail health are of top priorities for the 星期二 Night Race Series at Kelso. Our races run so long as we can operate with confidence that these priorities can be supported that evening based on trail conditions and weather.  

Knowing our rider community gets excited about racing, we made some big changes for 2024 and increased the number of races throughout the season.

Our 星期二 Night Race Series will consist of twelve races over four heats. 

Each heat will be comprised of three race nights followed by a Make-up (Flex) Night. Should we be able to run all three races in a heat, the Make-up (Flex) Night will serve as a break for riders from racing and no formal race will be held that evening.  

However, if conditions are unsafe for a race the Make-up (Flex) Night of that heat will serve as a make-up race date and a race will be held on that date.

The intermediate category will complete two laps of the Novice course, roughly 12 to 16 km total. An intermediate rider should have the ability to tackle harder blues and easier blacks, while having the endurance to complete the two laps. Intermediate riders should also have the ability to overtake slower riders safely, with proper notification and a pass that does not impede the other rider.

山地车比赛系列常见问题

Kelso MTB Series kicks off with the first race on 5月 14, 2023 and runs every 星期二 until the last race on 八月 20, 2024. The finale will be held on 八月 27, 2024.

我们提供5个类别可供选择。

Kids Race – A dedicated short track that targets young riders. The course is exceptionally easy, rideable on run-bikes and nearly every other options. Parental assistance is encouraged if needed and the focus is on fun and accomplishment.


Beginner Race – A dedicated short track that is built for newer riders that want to build some skill and participate in a race environment. We recommend a minimum of a 20″ wheel as well as a handlebar controlled front, and rear brakes.


Novice – 1 lap of our full course. This is a great category for younger riders, or riders with less stamina or ability. You will ride with the sport and expert riders, but you will have your own separate start. The single lap makes this an easier full race option. Keep an eye out for the Novice Race Cut-offs on course!


Intermediate 2 laps of our Novice course. This is a great category for riders who have stronger endurance, but aren’t quite at the skill level of the sport riders. You will be on course with all the riders but have your own start time. Keep an eye out for the novice and intermediate cut off signs!  


Sport – 2 laps of our full course. This is typically our largest categories with a wide age and ability range. You should have the ability to manage 2 laps of the course without depleting your energy level to exhaustion. 2 laps may take you 45 min to an hour and 20 min. Sport riders should be more confident riding at faster speeds and comfortable with the 12 to 16 km (approx.) in length.


Expert – 3 laps of our full course. This is our most advanced category. Most riders in this pack have previous race experience, and can ride laps at reasonable speed with relative ease. Riders should be comfortable riding the longer distances at greater speeds. Expert riders will typically finish between 45 minutes and 1 hour.

你的能力在很大程度上决定了你的比赛经验。每个能力类别都基于一个距离或圈数......之后,你的速度将决定你要骑多长时间。

  • Kids Lap = approx. 250m, ride as many laps as you can in 20 minutes
  • Beginner Race = 1.5 – 2 km, ride how ever many laps you can in 20 minutes
  • 新手赛=以比赛速度跑完全程(通常为6至8公里)一圈
  • Intermediate = 2 laps of full course (roughly 12-16km) at race pace 
  • 运动赛=以比赛速度跑完全程(12至16公里)2圈
  • 专家赛=以比赛速度跑完全程(18至24公里)3圈

一般来说,我们最快的骑手可以在大约18至20分钟内完成一整圈。而一些更初级的骑手会在35分钟以上完成该圈。

你将在注册时选择你想参加的比赛类别。这最好是你希望在本赛季参加的组别。作为一个系列赛的骑手,你每次比赛都会获得积分,这些积分是根据你所在的组别计算的。如果你想提高一个组别(例如从运动组到专家组),你将带着你的积分,然后开始在你的新组别中获得积分。如果你降低一个类别,我们将需要把你所有的累积积分清除为零。我们强烈建议你选择一个组别,并在赛季中坚持下去;专注于提高你在该距离的时间,然后在未来几年增加圈数

*在极少数情况下,如果存在安全或公平竞争问题,我们会强烈 "建议 "骑手提高或降低一个级别。

We have been proud to offer a FREE option for our newest riders for several years now and continue to do so in 2023! Kids wishing to come and try their hand on the kids loop are still welcome to come and do so for FREE. Those wishing to join us for the whole season, have their laps tracked and receive a draw ticket each week for some amazing prizes are now asked to pay a fee of $60 to cover some basic costs. If you wish to race for Free, please come out to the start line and keep pace with the other riders! We won’t track your laps, but the focus is on having fun! If you decide you want to compete, you can always sign up in future weeks! You may sample the race as often as you would like.

 

Uh oh! Such is life… this does happen. If you happen to forget your race plate, we will replace it for you for a fee. Each replacement chip/plate is $10. Come see us at the Visitor Service desk on race night and we can re-issue you a plate.

Our race season runs for the weeks scheduled.

只有在山路出现问题时,我们才会取消比赛。

  • 太湿,太泥泞,或被水覆盖,无法安全骑行
  • 比赛开始时,有活跃的雷声或闪电。
  • 例如,如果下午3点开始下雨,而雷达显示该地区到晚上即将有暴风雨,并且预报显示有同样或更糟糕的天气,我们将主动取消比赛。

New for 2024 – we have introduced our race series as through 4 heats with a make-up Flex evening in each. As an example, if race #1-3 were to be cancelled, the Flex Date for the first heat (6月 3) would serve as a formal race counted towards end of series point totals. If all races 1-3 ran as planned, the Flex Date would be a break from racing with no formal race on that evening. Check the schedule above for the most up to date information on Race Schedule.

This page is your best and most frequently updated resource and will be updated whenever decisions on race cancellations are made. For more info, follow us on Facebook and Twitter! Follow us on social media (@ConservationHalton) and we will provide updates on races through the day. We will also post final decisions to our website, but will only do this once a decision is final. Race cancellations are made with our best available detail / forecasts by 4:30 p.m. on race days. We would only cancel a race after 4:30 p.m. for emergency reasons such as an un-forecasted thunderstorm.

 

All Full Series Riders who register before Week #3 will receive a Race T-Shirt. We will issue these mid-season (early 八月). Wear them with pride!

 

是的!这个系列的价格是这样的:即使你错过了几场比赛,报名参加这个系列的比赛还是比较便宜的!这也是支持你的步道网络和赞助商的一个好方法!
