Two GCS Races Left

There are only two races left in the 2016 Georgia Championship Series!  This weekend, points will be on the line BOTH DAYS at the Rumble at Roebling Road.  Due to inconsistent GCS categories, the following rules will apply: 1. GCS Points will only be earned by riders racing in their category of highest eligibility.  To be clear, Cat3s will only earn points in the P/1/2/3 race, and Cat4s will only earn points in the 3/4 race.  In addition, points will be earned based on the rider's overall finish, not on the finish amongst riders in his/her category only.  This scoring policy is consistent with how similar multi-category races have been scored in years past.  Any questions please email to info@gacycling.org.  

The GCS will be wrapping up at the Grant Park Criterium on August 21st.

Good luck to all riders as the season comes to a close and the final standings are determined. See you at the races!

State Championship Results

For the Cat3 State Championship Road Race which was neutralized before the finish due to inclement weather, all riders who crossed the finish with 4 laps completed have earned earned 2nd place GCS points.  Will Eustace has earned 1st place points as well as the State Championship jersey for his boldness to go for a breakaway as well as his >2 minute lead on the field at the time of neutralization.  This decision was reached unanimously by the chief referee and the GBRA Board of Directors at our meeting conducted on 6/6/2016.  While this is certainly not the optimal outcome for a race, we felt it was the best outcome given the inclement weather.  Any questions regarding this decision may be directed to info@gacycling.org.
