LAMBRA CYCLING CUP SERIES

All riders on a team must hold current USAC annual licenses in order the team to be eligible for LCCS points.
Teams with mixed LCCS Classes/Categories will compete in the class/category of the most advanced team member according to the following hierarchy. Cat. 1,2,3; Cat. 4; Master 40+; Master 55+; Junior
Teams composed entirely of Master or Junior riders must elect in advance to compete in either the appropriate Skill Category or Age-Graded LCCS race. For example, a 2-man team composed of a Cat. 2 master 40+ rider and a Cat. 4 master 40+ rider may compete in either the Cat. 1,2,3 competition or the Master 40+ competition.

COURSE

Click to see area map12.4 miles out and 12.4 miles back on HWY 51. Road is extremely smooth and fast. Turnaround will be about a 1/2 mile before the manchac overpass. Course will be closed to most traffic, but police will be allowing access to some vehicles as necessary. *Junior teams will compete over a 20 km course, turning around at the 10 km point. Warm-up space will be extremely limited so we suggest bringing a stationary trainer. Riders will not be allowed to warm up on Hwy 51 south of the I-55 on-ramp.

Relevant USCF Team Time Trial Rules:

3F. Team Time Trial

3F3. Only road bicycles shall be used. (For those triathletes out there, this does NOT exclude typical Time Trial or Triathlon bikes.)

3F4. The starting interval between teams will normally be at least two minutes, but may be increased according to the course. (for this event, we will use 1-minute intervals)

3F5. Starting order may be chosen by random selection, by numeric order, or by seeding (fastest last). (For this event, we will use numeric order, grouped according to Class/Category.)

3F6. Start. (a) Each team shall report to the starter at least three minutes before their scheduled starting time and shall start at the scheduled time. If a team appears later than the appointed starting time, the start shall be allowed only if it does not interfere with other teams starting on schedule. If it does interfere, the team may be further delayed. In case of a 75 late start, the appointed time shall be used in computing results. (b) The riders from each team shall line up side by side at the start. All riders shall be held by officials at the start and shall neither be restrained nor pushed. When there are too few holders, all riders must start with one foot on the ground. All teams must start in the same manner. No restarts shall be permitted for any reason.

3F9. All pushing of riders is forbidden, even among teammates. Such pushing will result in the entire team being disqualified.

3F10. No team shall take pace behind another team closer than 25 meters (80 feet) ahead, or 2 meters (7 feet) to the side [time penalties in Table 1].

3F11. The exchange of food, drink, minor repair items, help with repairs and exchange of wheels or bicycles shall be permitted solely among members of the same team.
