The Scholastic Open races are for anyone in high school, middle school, or elementary school. Participants can be on an official school-based cycling team, just individuals, or any size group in between. Scholastic racers can attend public, private, or home schools but they must be student-athletes. (i.e. if you dropped out of school then you should race the adult skill-based category)
In case you didn’t know yet “open” means anyone of any ability can compete in that mixed event so for scholastic open this means all students will race in a single race that starts at the same time. It usually then quickly breaks up into smaller groups of racers more aptly suited for one another as racers can no longer hold the pace of the leaders.
If you are 12-14 and wanting to race then we strongly encourage you to really register for the scholastic open category instead of the juniors 9-14 category.
If you are racing age 19 and still in high school then that is FINE, too… come on out and race in the scholastic category.
Finally, please let us know what school you go to and enter it into your bikereg profile when you are registering for this event.
