Below are the guidelines for how the ACA will conduct races in the event of challenging weather. Our primary considerations are the safety of riders, support staff and spectators, and potential damage to the venue and trails.
Any decisions regarding canceling, postponing or altering race start times, lap lengths, number of laps, etc. will be made jointly by the ACA Executive Director, Race Director, Operations Director, Chief Referee and the land manager. Often this decision cannot be made until the morning of the race due to the unpredictable and rapidly changing nature of severe weather.
The ACA will make every attempt to notify the racing population as soon as possible via email, social media and website updates.
