Each race in the 2011 Hope Race Series is a simple, single race (maximum 2 hours long) with a staggered start for the categories.
The Racers / Weekend Warriors / Racing Divas start first, followed by the Have-a-go Heros and then the Lads / Lasses with a 20 minute gap between each start. The Lads and Lasses start at about 10:40. After the leading rider/s have done 90 minutes, they will get a bell indicating the last lap. All riders crossing the finishing line will then get the bell. The next time the leading rider/s cross the line, they get the chequered flag indicating the end of the race. All riders subsequently crossing the finish line also get the chequered flag indicating the end of the race. The winner for each category is the rider who has completed the most laps. In the event of a tie, the riders with the shortest time to complete is the winner.
There will be prizes / trophies for each category in every race from our sponsors, along with some overall series prizes from Hope (see prize page).
2011 Hope Race Series does offer BC ranking points for "sport" categories in the "Racer" and "Racing Divas" categories. See race rules for more information.
