What You Need to Know


Your Subtitle Goes Here
  • You must obey all USAC rules and Colorado State Laws. That includes riding to the right of the road and never crossing the centerline.
  • You must know the course. On our website you will find a course map and GPS files that you can use to navigate the course.
  • You must not warm up on the course once the race has started. If a marshal or USAC official sees you, you will be disqualified.
  • You must be aware of other park users, this is an open course. Be courteous, we are guests of CCSP and must respect all other park users.
  • You are responsible for your own safety. Our marshals and traffic control personnel will do their best to warn you of any vehicle, pedestrian, or bicycle traffic but you are responsible to look both ways when crossing an intersection or coming up to a crosswalk.
  • You must read and understand the KHMTT flyer. The race flyer is now part of our website (this page) and it contains all the details about the series. Most questions we receive are covered on this page, read it and know it before you register.
  • You must arrive at the park on time and be at the start line on time. If you arrive at the park late due to circumstances not under your control, see us at the table behind the Smoky Hill parking lot and we will do our best to reschedule your start time, but there are no guarantees.
  • You must pin your bib correctly. Our spotter and timing crew do not have x-ray vision. If they cannot easily see your bib number, they may not be able to give you your time. You may want to consider yelling out your bib number as you go by the spotter, located just after the last turn towards the finish. We have detailed instructions on how and where to pin your bib here.
  • You must.verify your own results.  If you believe your results are incorrect or they are not posted, you may contact us and request a review. Click here and scroll down to Other, and My time for my last race is incorrect or missing and there you may fill out a form requesting the review.

If you do not know which nights you will be able to race, you can sign up for our Show and Go and have the same start time each time you race.

If you want to ride the course twice (two bibs, two start times, two categories) pay only 8.00 in addition to your base registration fee.

No Annual USAC License

If you do not have an annual USAC license you may purchase a one day license for an additional 15.00. One Day licenses are only available for single race purchases.

If your annual USAC license is expired, you must renew your USAC license or you must purchase an experienced one day license directly from USAC at https://usacycling.org.

The KHMTT allows you to race twice each night for a very low additional cost.

When registering to race twice, you need to consider the time you believe you will be able to complete the course during your first race of the night, time to recover, and time to make your way to the start line before you select your second race start time. The normal time is about an hour.

Because you need to determine in which order you want to race in each of your categories, and set your start times to be able to finish one race and start the next, you will not be assigned start times when you register but will be sent an email that will allow you to pick the order and start time for each of your races.

USAC rules state that each race must be in a different category, however if you are a CAT P-1-2-3 racer and do not want to race in a RETRO category you may race twice in the same category.

However for series points and reporting of race results to USAC your second race results will not be considered.

You will be issued a bib number for the entire series for each category in which you are racing. Do not discard your bib after the first week – you will need it for all the races!

Your bib number corresponds to your start time. If later you decide to change your start time, you must come to the bib pickup table behind the Smoky Hill parking lot and exchange your bib for a new one that corresponds to your new start time. This is required if you only change your start time for a single week or the remaining races of the series.

Bibs are not transferable to another racer.

The race bib must be pinned correctly on the left side. If the bib number is obstructed by hair or otherwise hidden from the view of the spotter or timers, then you may not receive a time.

For correct placement and pinning information, click here.
