PRIZE MONEY

For 2019, PossAbilities has updated the payout structure. In an effort to enhance the competitiveness of our para-cycling race we have established a total prize payout for the Omnium of $6,875.

H and recumbent only
The first place finisher will receive $1,000! Our new Omnium cash payouts will be based on podium placements over 4 days of racing. This means that for each race you will receive 1 point for first place, 2 for second, 3 for third and so on for each of the racing classifications until your classification group is exhausted. After the last day of racing (Sunday), the athletes with the lowest number of points will be ranked from 1st place (lowest points) to 10th place (highest points). In the case of a tie, your ITT FACTORED time will act as a tie-breaker to decide your cumulative final overall ranking for the Omnium cash prizes. ITT FACTORED time will be based on 2019 National Standards.

Class H and Recumbent prizes will be awarded as follows:

 

  • $1,000 – 1st Place
  • $900 – 2nd Place
  • $800 – 3rd Place
  • $700 – 4th Place
  • $600 – 5th Place
  • $500 – 6th Place
  • $400 – 7th Place
  • $300 – 8th Place
  • $200 – 9th Place
  • $100 – 10th Place

T, C, and B classifications only
The first place finisher will receive $500! Prize payouts for T, C, and B classifications will be based on ITT results. However, T, C, and B must participate in the TT and RR in order to qualify for prize payouts.

Class T, C, and B prizes will be awarded as follows:

 

  • $500 – 1st Place
  • $250 – 2nd Place
  • $125 – 3rd Place

 

 

PROTEST PERIOD: A protest regarding the final results must be made within 15 minutes after the posting of results in order for riders to be eligible for prizes.

START INFORMATION
All riders must check in with the para-cycle race director 30 minutes prior to race start. Riders should arrive at the start line at least 15 minutes before their designated start. Riders will start at 30 second intervals for the time trial.

INDIVIDUAL RACE INFORMATION

 

Yucaipa Time Trial – Wednesday, March 13                                                                         All classes
Location: Start at Crafton Hills College, Emerald View Drive

Start Time – 10:00 am

Distance – 12.4 km/7.0 mi

Course – Out and back course

Check-in time: 9:00 a.m. (please do not be late)

 

Course is mostly out/back with a fast out and a slow back! From the START LINE the course wanders down past the Learning Resource Center until you reach Campus Drive. Turn right on Campus Drive which is a steep downhill section reaching grades of -15%! This will be a short but fast section where you will want to stay to the left so you can better enter the sharp right hand turn onto Sand Canyon Rd. After turning right onto Sand Canyon Rd. (entire road will be closed to vehicular traffic) you will descend down Sand Canyon Rd. for about 3 miles at a very fast pace where you will reach TOP SPEED!! Be careful as anything not tightly fastened to your bike will tend to pop out as a result of intense vibrations caused by the road surface. NOTE: Sand Canyon Rd. will change names to 5th Ave. (it’s still the same street). The course then turns right on Dearborn St. Please be aware that only the left side of Dearborn St. will be closed to cars. Head down Dearborn St. until the Race Marshalls signal you to turn left into the turn-a-round at Moore Middle School. The remainder of the course is mostly a repeat of the first half descent but now you will be climbing the rest of the way back. As you return on Sand Canyon Rd. the Race Marshalls will instruct you to turn left on Campus Drive (different from how you exited the college). From Campus Drive the Race Marshalls will direct you to turn right on Emerald View Drive until you reach the FINSH LINE. The course is mostly well paved and in good condition with the exception of a few spots on your way down the fastest section of Sand Canyon Rd.


Registration

Registration and check-in will take place at the PossAbilities van in the parking lot.

 

Awards

A sharp right turn on Sunnyside Drive before making a sharp left turn up the Fir Ave. climb a 90 degree turn follows on Bryant St. where you will ride straight until you reach Oak Glen Rd. A final right turn on Sunnyside Drive until you reach the FINISH LINE. As many laps as can be completed in 75 minutes. Race ends on leader’s lap.
