Introducing the new 2018 CLIF KIDS CLASS made possible by CLIF makers of Clif Bar and other healthy energy foods. This class is for racers that will turn 12 years old during 2018. The CLIF KIDS CLASS will have their own championship and prizing from CLIF for the top racers at every Enduro and DH event. But here’s the big news the class will race for free thanks to the MAXXIS ESC, CLIF and the venues.
The MAXXIS ESC’s reigning Pro Women’s DH and Enduro Champion, Rachel Pageau from Quebec, Canada will meet with both the Enduro and DH CLIF KIDS on Saturdays. They will review race structure, planning and how to safely race MTB. We will also have a racing parent with working with each discipline, they will escort the racers and stay with them at the starts and sweep behind the class to make sure they are all safely through the race tracks.
All racers must have their parents sign the waivers and the racers will sign in at registration. For Pre-Registered CLIF KIDS CLASS Racers there will be no registration fee or lift ticket fee for race day. We all really want to grow our sport and feel this is a great way to get the kids started.
We will be charging the same $10 late fee for onsite registrations and Saturday Lift passes at lift assisted venues is not included, however they can be purchased online or onsite for a discounted rate of just $25!
RACING WITH YOUR KID
Only race registered MAXXIS ESC racers with 2018 MAXXIS Race Plates are allowed on the MAXXIS ESC race tracks or transfers during practice and race day. If a parent wants to ride with their kids they MUST be registered and follow all the MAXXIS ESC Race Rules. We’re sorry but there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this due to insurance requirements.
Brooks Nablo will be working with the CLIF KIDS Enduro racers. His 6 year old son raced with us last season and had a blast. Brooks will meet with the CLIF KIDS Class Racers at our registration area immediately after the racers meeting. Brooks will escort the racers to the start and sweep behind the group throughout the race. The CLIF KIDS CLASS will be the last group to start allowing them ample time to get to the start and will not compete on all the race sections. Often, they will not race the last race section and transfer. Occasionally they may start on a different section than everyone else.
Mike Hoffarth will be working with the CLIF KIDS CLASS Downhill racers. His son will be competing in the class. Mike will meet with the CLIF KIDS Class Racers at our registration area immediately after the DH Chip hand out late Sunday morning. Mike will escort the racers to the start and sweep behind the group. The CLIF KIDS CLASS will be the first group to start. They will compete on the same track as the MAXXIS ESC DH racers. Occasionally they may start the race lower on the hill than everyone else.
CLIF KIDS CLASS Racers should be able to ride most trails in a bike park on their own. If there are hard sections they don’t feel comfortable on, then they should walk those sections.e Rules. We’re sorry but there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this due to insurance requirements.
