We (well, mostly Topher), have just posted the final points standings for the MTB season.
So, here is the scoop with Nationals qualifications.
The following teams receive a full allocation, which means:
1. Maximum 6 riders per discipline (XC, STXC, DH or DS)
2. Maximum 8 riders per gender (combined across all four disciplines.
D1: FLC, CU, CSU, UW
D2: Western, CSM, Mesa, AFA
If your team is listed above, please send me your roster as soon as possible, so I can approve your riders to register. In order to do that, I need:
2. Disciplines each rider shall race (i.e. XC, DH, etc.)
3. License number (nice to have but not 100% necessary)
If you are not on the 7 teams listed above but would like to race Nationals, please let me know, and we can likely accommodate your request.
Don't forget, all riders wishing to race nationals, must meet these requirements:
(j) To compete in the Endurance Races at a mountain bike National Championship, a Rider must have competed as a 203 category A Rider in his or her final three conference Mass Start Endurance Races during the current season.
(k) To compete in the 4X or Dual Slalom Race at a mountain
bike National Championship, a Rider must have competed as a category A Rider in his or her final three conference Gravity Races during the current season.
(l) To compete in the Downhill Race at a mountain bike National Championship, a Rider must have competed as a category A Rider in his or her final three conference Gravity Races during the current season, where at least two of those Races must be Downhill Races. Only in Conferences with fewer than two Downhill Events, riders may petition to substitute USAC Category 1 or higher Downhill Events from the current calendar year
Last, but not least, the following riders will receive XC and STXC call-ups as the 2011 RMCCC Champions in their respective genders and divisions:
D1 Women: Katie Sodergren, CU
D1 Men: Rotem Ishay, FLC
D2 Women: Madison Samblanet, WSC
