Registration:
Race pre-registration for all categories is available beginning August 29th at 6am.  UCI Elite Men, UCI Elite Women,and UCI Juniors are pre-registration only.   Day of registration will be available (with the exception of UCI categories) for riders on-site for an additional $10.   Riders must register for category on their racing license, and no upgrades will be available on-site.

USCF license required for all categories with the exception of free kids races.  Temporary one-day license available for purchase on-site at events for all Cat 4 categories only.  For Cat 1/2/3 - annual license is required (also available to purchase on-site).  Registration staff will be checking licenses at number pickup - license must be present to race. UCI International License required to race Elite Men, Women, and 17-18 Junior races.  

Starting & Staging Procedure:
UCI Mens, Womens and Juniors Elite Events (UCI rule 5.1.043): starting order to be determined by latest published UCI cyclo-cross ranking, as posted on www.uci.ch.  Riders with highest UCI points are staged first.  Remaining without points will be staged by random lot.  Every Elite rider registered will be called up to starting line in order of bib number.  For all other categories, all pre-registered riders will be staged by their Crossresults.com ranking.

Friday events:

Harbin Park practice will begin at noon and run till 3pm.  Please watch for volunteers as they will be out on course doing setup.   Devou Park practice will begin at 3pm and run until 6pm.  Please watch for volunteers.   3rd Annual "Welcome to Covington" reception at Berhinger-Crawford Museum (inside Devou Park- down from start line) begins at 5pm and goes until 7pm.

Attention Juniors and Parents!  3-time U.S. National Champion and 2007 World's Silver Medalist will be leading a FREE 2-hour clinic for the juniors on the Devou Park race course.  Clinic begins at 4pm at the Behringer-Crawford Museum parking lot.

Host Hotel:  The Raddisson Covington KY has a block of very nice rooms at a heavily discounted rate of $119 for Friday and Saturday nights for weekend participants and family.  5 minute drive to Devou Park.  Call in reservation to (859) 491-1200 and use code CYCLOCROSS.

OVCX Series: This event is part of the 2017 Ohio Valley Cyclocross Series.  For series schedule of events and complete rules & info, please visit OVCX.COM.

Registration:  For racers that miss pre-registration, walk-up registration will be available at the race for an additional $10.  The registration table opens up 2 hours before the start of the first race.  Registration closes for an event 45 minutes before its start.  For optimum start line staging, register early (see "Start Line Staging" below for details).

Chip Timing:  Each rider is provided a free custom OVCX timing chip for the top of their helmet at their first OVCX race they attend.  It should stay on your helmet for the entirety of the OVCX Series.  If yours is lost, the chip must be replaced at a cost of $10. Event results will contain finish times, as well as splits for each lap. 


Start Line Staging:
 All categories scheduled to start at the same time will go off in one wave, with individual categories intermixed.  First to be staged on the line are those that pre-register at least 2 weeks out from the event date, and they will be staged by their Crossresults.com ranking.  Next staged will be everyone that pre-registers from 2 weeks out point til the close of pre-registration – and they also will be staged by their Crossresults.com ranking.  Those that register on raceday will line up at the back.  This system will work for all combined categories going off the starting line at the same time.  Again, each category will get scored separately as well, and get a podium celebration each day as well as OVCX series points for their category.


Results:  Full results will be posted to USA Cycling within 24 hrs of completion of event, and posted to OVCX.com within 48 hours of event.  Categories will be broken out for OVCX series scoring only; USAC results will have the full wave results (for higher potential USAC ranking points). 

OVCX Series Points: Top 3 finishers for each category at the end of the season are recognized at the awards party after the final race at Armco in Lebanon, OH December 2nd.  Each race participant earns points, and their best 7 finishes are calculated for their overall score at the end of the season.

Series Raffle: Tradition holds that there will be raffle following the final races at the final event, this year at Major Taylor in Indianapolis. To qualify for the raffle it is required to participate in 9 out of 13 events. You must start the race to get credit towards one of your 9 races.
