Relay teams are 3-person teams that race approximately 50-60 miles total with each member of relay doing one or two laps. Relay teams are different from Individual Roster Teams who submit a roster of up to 7 solo racers who earn Individual Points from their race that are compiled for their Team Roster Rankings.
No license is required to race.
Entry fee includes a well marked course, friendly staff, custom clothing, scoring and rankings, post race grub, frothy refreshments, medical support, fully stocked aid station, awards party and raffles throughout the field.
3-Person Relay Discipline
Have you ever wanted to enter a mountain bike race, but aren’t sure you’ve got what it takes? Introducing a new discipline this year – the 3-person Relay team! Grab your friends, teammates, co-workers, family members or newbies to the sport and enter the Relay discipline. Instead of solo riding the Endurance discipline length, the team will divide and conquer, comprising one or two laps each depending on the course. This is a great way to enter a race for the first time and race as a team or encourage each other in training and share your experience with your teammates.
There are men, women and coed open categories. You can register for each race separately, or buy a Series Pass. We will compile Series rankings for this new discipline so you can compare your performance to other Relay teams.
Wear the same jersey, socks or costumes to represent your Relay team.
*Note: Competition in the Relay Team is different than the Individual Roster Team Rankings. The Individual Roster Teams are made up of 5-7 Individual Solo Racers’ Points that are compiled for Roster Team Rankings. Please call us if you have questions.
The RME Junior League
Our junior program continues with racing and specific age categories for Juniors 11-18. Four Series races (exception is Breck) have a Junior discipline with their own age specific route, distance and award categories. Distances vary between age groups: Juniors 15-18 = 20 miles, Juniors 13-14 = 10 miles, Juniors 10-12 = 5 miles. If a strong Junior wants to race farther than their designated age group distance, they may ‘race up in age’ and compete in the longer race in the age group above them.
Racing throughout the early summer helps you to stay in shape for the upcoming high school league, achieve training goals and compete against others you might not match in the scholastic season.
Just like the Seniors, you can enter each event as a stand-alone race, or enter the entire Series with a Series Pass at an even more discounted price with perks. Rankings will be maintained over the Series to recognize and award the top Juniors in all four age groups.
Series rankings will be maintained in six disciplines – Endurance, XC, Appetizer, Junior, Relay and Individual Roster Teams. Finishers in the top twenty in each category receive points from each race (100, 95, 90…. 15, 10, 5). Track the standings on our race results page throughout the season. Join past champions and emerging competitors to compete for the title of RME’s Series winners!
