BigDaveSports has been given the thumbs up to put on a Midwest Regional Masters Championship for USA Cycling.  The plan is to put on a Stage Race with 3 stages – a time trial, road race and criterium.  There will be champions crowned for each race as well as the overall stage race, thus giving you 3 Races and 4 Championships.  The dates for this event will be the weekend of Saturday, July 23, 2011 and Sunday, July 24, 2011.  The Time Trial will be in Cleves, OH on Saturday morning.  The road race will be using many of the same roads in North Bend, OH on Saturday afternoon and evening.  The criterium will be in Aurora, IN on Sunday.  The three events are all with in 20 miles of one another.

Midwest Region

Per USA Cycling, the Midwest Region consist of the 12 states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky.  With over 56% of the licensed masters racers of the region living in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan, we are in a prime location for such an event.  Though this event will be open to all masters riders, only those with one of these 12 states listed as their state of residence on their license will be eligible for championship awards.

Racing Categories/Age Groups

All riders with a racing age of 30 years old in 2011 will be allowed to participate in this event.  Championships will be awarded in every 5-year age bracket for both men and women.  Men (racing) ages 30-54 will also be split up by categories to allow more riders to participate (avoiding field limits) and safer fields.  The categories will be Cat 1/2/3, Cat 4 and Cat 5.  All other age groups will be open to all category racers.  The women will all race together but will be separated into the standard 5-year age brackets for scoring and championship purposes.

Know who you are racing against.  The number sequences have been announced for each 5-year age bracket.
