MSG has a long history of beautiful venues with fast and fun CX courses. Expect no different this year!
If you own a racing license, it should list a CX category. You must race your category. If you do well and earn upgrade points, you may move up. More details can be found on the USAC website.
Yes, it’s true! After paying for an entry into one race, competitors may enter a second race for just $10.00.
Racers may ride any type of bicycle that complies with USAC rules. (cyclo-cross, mtn. bike, road bike, etc.) NO bar-ends are allowed on mountain bikes per the USAC rules.
All racers will be held under USAC permit, riders must SIGN the standard USAC waiver of liability at each race and wear an CSPC approved helmet while riding or racing.

Essentially, “Field Points” are the number of riders you beat. Thus, if you win the CX3 race and the field had 20 riders, you will get 19 points added to your 60 race points for a total of 60 + 19 = 79 points. If you finish 13th in the same race, you will get 16 race points and 7 field points for a total of 16 + 7 = 23 points. Questions? Contact the Series Coordinator.
Riders must compete in at least 4 races to be eligible for the overall prize list. In the event of a tie the rider placing highest at the Series Final will be deemed the winner. If a tie still exists the winner will be determined according to USAC rules. The USAC official’s results from the individual races will be used to determine the MSG Series points. Racers must pick which category the wish to be scored for in the over all IE: Cat3 or Masters. You can’t be eligible for the over all in both categories, although you can race in more than one category.
Racers will have the same number throughout the Series. There will be a $3.00 number replacement fee! Do not lose or forget your number. Numbers will be assigned at the first race you attend.
Most importantly, bring a positive attitude and plan on having tons of fun! Behaving in an unsportsman-like way will result in loss of racing privileges.
