Who are you racing against? Depends on your age as of December 31, 2012 – yes, 2012! Cyclocross is technically on next year’s schedule so that is the date used for the age cut off.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Fall Supper in St. Malo. Here is a map showing you how to get to the Fall Supper: Chalet Malouin, 14 St. Hilaire Street.
All competitors will receive a meal ticket with their entrance fee. Extra meal tickets can be purchased for family and friends using the online registration, cost $13.50.
