Series Rules:
  1. ELIGIBLE PROMOTERS: VACX promoters must have promoted a Cyclocross race prior to being a VACX series promoter. All series promoters will be responsible for splitting the costs of any series items. All series promoters share the costs of Items such as trophies or medals.
  2. EVENTS Defined as the entire slate of racing offered by a promoter on a given day. The VACX Cyclocross Series is open to all riders, regardless of state residence or club affiliation.
    1. VACX events can be sanctioned by USCF or run privately. It is strongly suggested that events be sanctioned by USCF as to promote a tiered system for racers and be recognized by our national federation within the sport of Cyclocross.
    2. Events must follow the Cyclocross course guidelines described in the New England Cyclocross Series Technical guide: ( http://www.necyclocross.com/resources/2003neccstechguide10_03.pdf).
    3. Courses design and layout must be taken seriously for the sport of cyclocross. Quote from NECCS technical guidelines: There are common aspects of mountain and road racing but it would be a mistake to view it as a variation of either. Cyclocross racing is a race of transitions and courses need to take this into consideration when planning. It is the intention and goal of the VACX series to promote the best possible cyclocross courses within the series. Cyclocross races should be races of transitions and therefore, be interesting and challenging course design in the interest of a Cyclocross bike.
    4. Each event in the series must offer separate races for each of the 9 classes. This rule does not prohibit multiple classes racing concurrently. This rule does not prohibit offering other classes or categories. The event announcement must list a set of awards, or a prize list for each race.
  3. RACE: A specific competition, denoted by a separate prize list, but possibly sharing a starting time with another class, at a given event.
  4. CLASS: The identifier of the field for a given race. Other Classes may be added to individual promoters but MUST be stated on the individual events flyer, but only the classes listed below will be scored in the series.

    Masters 35+

    VACX classes may be combined to run concurrently or separately. Due to the varied attendances within our series, it is our intention to make it easier on the promoter by doing this.

    Classes listed must have separate, pre-determined, prize lists and be scored separately.

  5. SERIES WINNERS - In each class, the rider having accumulated the greatest number of series points is eligible for series awards.
  6. AWARDS Series awards are those given out at the series end in the form of winner’s trophies or medals. These are separate from the individual events awards.
  7. TIE-BREAKERS In the situation that series class winners end in a tie for points, it will be the placing of those riders at the series final event to determine the tie-breaker.
  8. RESULTS Results MUST be sent electronically within 12 hours from the end of the event to Bill Henderson Bill will tally the series standings and post the race results and standings on this website.
  9. Allocating Points Riders will earn points in the class of their race, rather than in the class of the rider. For example, if a woman rides the Men A race, she earns points in the Men A class. Points are not transferable between classes. Points are awarded to the top 15 finishers by the following table:
    Place Points
    160
    240
    330
    425
    520
    618
    716
    814
    912
    1010
    118
    125
    134
    142
    151
    Individual points cannot be scored twice! A single rider competes in 2 races at a single event will only be scored points based on the best finish. i.e. a 3 rd place finish ranks higher than a 4 the place so the 3 rd place will be scored points.
  10. Following Season Racer upgrade Series class winners in the C and B classes MUST upgrade to the higher class for the next VACX season. Example: the series winner of the B classes shall upgrade to the A class.
