COURSE MARKINGS

Start and Finish Lines are marked with black CDC Flags.

Transfers are marked with Black CDC arrows.

Race Stages are marked with course tape.

If course tape is on both sides the trail you must go between the tape.

If tape is on one side of the trail do not cross the tape.

FIRST AID

First Aid is roaming on course in various locations, and typically available at the finish lines.

SAFETY

Safety trumps everything. Ride within yourself and make good choices. Helmets must be worn and buckled at all times while on a bike. Two helmets are allowed to be carried (XC and full face). iPods/headphones/external speakers - NO! Don't even try, this will result in an immediate DQ!
 

Man Down Rule - If you come across a downed racer, you are required to stop and confirm if the down racer is uninjured before continuing on. If immediate medical aid is needed call 911 and/or wait for the next racer to come by. Then one racer goes to inform a race official and one racer stays with the down racer. If life threatening, get help! 

 

Passing - If you hear “on your right” or “on your left” you need to let the faster rider pass but only pull off to the side of the trail when it is safe to do. This is not a XC race... NO BLOCKING. If you've been caught by a rider that started 30 seconds behind you, they're a little faster than you, so let them by as soon as it's safe to do so.


The complete Cascadia Dirt Cup rulebook can be found here.
