Last year the A category had the opportunity to race in the dark, however this year, both the A and B categories will have the opportunity to race in the darkness, while the Citizens will ride from dusk into darkness.

Cyclocross courses are a mixture of dirt, pavement and grass, featuring obstacles and dismounts that require portaging the bike over the 1-2 mile course (kids lap = less than 1 mile). Participants will complete as many laps as possible during the time duration of each category.
The 2 Lap Fun Run is a new addition to this year's series as a way to attract the whole family to the races! These can also be a great way to preview the race on foot and warm up your lungs for the upcoming hard work during the cyclocross race! If you are doing another race on top of the Fun Run, you will get $5 off the $10 run entry fee and re-use your number and timing chip.

Policy #1: Should a cycling race be canceled for any reason 14 days or less from the race date, we will extend an entry fee credit certificate to athletes enrolled in the canceled race to be used against the entry fee for any single MAD Racing event (within the state of Colorado) of choice conducted in the same year. A certificate will be issued in the amount of 50% of the original entry fee paid (processing fees do not apply). The certificate must be used within the same calendar year as it was issued and can be used for any discipline of racing (i.e. Road, Cross, etc). If the race is the last one of the year then the certificate can be used towards an event the following year. If a race is canceled more than 15 days out a full refund will be issued. (processing fees do not apply)
Policy #2: If a race has been rescheduled for the same calendar year (i.e. cyclo-cross season) then no refunds will be credited.
