here is what we call the "Race Bible" it has all the regulations and
directions you'll need in order to do your lap and report your results.
> 1.These are the only rules that apply and Jason Stratton has the final say
> on all decisions.
> 2. *Racing age:* Your racing age will be your age as of 12/31/2012.
> Therefore, for example if you are now 64 and your birthday is April 1, your
> racing age will be 65. We are doing this because some of the races in the
> series will go on through the beginning of the year, so we are using 2012
> 3. *Who May Race: * You may race if you are a member in good standing of
> Cyclo-vets. You can ride if you renew your membership by Jan 1, 2012. No
> license of any kind is required, this is not really an official race
> series. If your family has a paid Family Membership, the family member(s)
