Please note:  We do not offer refunds or deferrals for our event. However, if we are forced to cancel the ride ahead of the start, USACycling has a refund policy. If we are forced to cancel the ride after the start, we do not offer a refund.




Refunds:  No refunds.  No referrals.  No transfers.  However, if we are forced to cancel the ride ahead of the start, USACycling has a refund policy. If we are forced to cancel the ride after the start, we do not offer a refund.


Challenge/ULTRA Distance Option Changes:  Once registered, cyclists can switch any distance option except for the ULTRA distance. Once you have signed up for the ULTRA, you can switch the distance achieved at the finish line – only. In other words, if you sign up for the ULTRA, and you decide mid-ride to do the century, you can switch your distance at the finish with the timing company, not before the ride. You will get credit for the century ride and will be listed in the final results as having completed the century. (Why? Because we want the ULTRA riders to commit to the challenge of the ULTRA when they register. It’s all in the training! So be sure you want to commit before you register.)


Age Policy:  Your age for our event is determined by your age on December 31st of the year that the event takes place.


For the UCI Qualifier, the UCI doesn’t recognize riders 18 or younger, so these riders will not receive an official UCI Medal at the Awards Ceremony; however, riders placing in the 18 and younger age group for the century ride, will receive a non-UCI Medal to recognize their achievement.


The Century and ULTRA are for riders 16 years old or older. If a 15 year old or younger wants to register for the Century or ULTRA, registration must be cleared and approved through the Race Director, Brooke Nelson: brookenelson@amcvets.com.
