The event organizers would like to thank you in advance for any and all help with course take-down immediately following the race (before / after awards).

Awards and Prizes

1st place in each category – $25
2nd place in each category – $15
3rd place in each category – $10

To receive a cash prize, you must come in ahead of someone else in your category. For example, if there are only 2 Cat 3 men, only the 1st place finisher will receive a cash prize. Awards will take place as soon as results are tabulated, after the last racer has completed the course.

Mechanical/Feed Zone

Feeding allowed ONLY if the Chief of Commissaires so declares. The bike/wheel pit will be at approximately the halfway point of the course so that we can have double entry (3KM sounds like a nice walk until you are in a hurry to get some repairs done).

You Should Know

  • All riders must have a valid UCI/CCA license, or an SCA in-province license. These can be purchased at the event, but then you need cash, and it takes forever to fill out the form, etc… so do yourself a favor and sign up now at www.saskcycling.ca
  • Riders are expected to know and understand the UCI Cyclocross rules.
  • Please bring your race license and road racing body numbers. If you do not have body numbers, theSCA will provide those to you on race day.
  • Cyclo-cross bikes & mountain bikes are permitted in all categories.

Courtesy Notes for Race Venue

  • Please respect the park by not urinating in public (the washrooms are located in the boat house where you registered and signed on).
  • Garbage containers are conveniently placed around the park.
  • Please respect the Commissaires, volunteers and your fellow racers at all times.

Number Placement

Please bring your race license, and road racing body numbers. If you do not have body numbers, the SCA will provide those for you on race day. Position both numbers on each the left and right side pockets (as per the illustration). Do not fold or overlap numbers.

Tips For New Racers and Reminders For the Rest of Us!

  • Pack the night before. Don’t forget: ID (race license/member card), helmet, gloves, glasses, shoes, bike, bike clothing, spare tube (you can get a flat prior to a race), food to eat prior and after, water bottles with water, towel (in case it’s muddy/wet), and anything else you can think of. If the weather is iffy, pack extra clothing so you can stay warm while you wait for the start.
  • Food and water are very rarely provided at Sask Cup races. Bring what you need.
  • Check your bike over before you start racing better yet, get a tuneup a few days prior to the event. A clean bikeis a fast bike. Clean your bike and oil your chain.
  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to registration opening. You’ll have time to park, set up your equipment, register, pre-ride, change, and eat something.
  • The SCA numbers you get at the first race of each discipline (EG Road or Cyclocross) will be the numbers youkeep for the season. Please bring them to every race.
  • Pre-ride the course. You might be intimidated thinking you will hold everyone up, but you won’t, and you mustknow where you are going.
  • You must follow the course at all times while you are racing. If you leave the course, you must re-enter whereyou left.
  • If you can no longer race and wish to quit, you must check in with the start/finish line to let them know that youhave left the race. We will spend a great deal of time looking for you.
  • Please be polite to those you are racing with. It’s easy to get excited and wish to pass people quickly.Remember that people need a bit of time when you are passing them. Use language like, “I’m just behind you and will pass on the left when it’s safe”.
  • Introduce yourself to at least one person. Maybe you’ll make a new friend!
  • Have fun! You’re doing something many people only dream of doing. Most of us have decided not to go to theOlympics this time around, so we’re all out with the same idea. 😉
