The AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series (GNCC), an AMA National Championship, is pleased to announce the addition of Fantic eMTB bicycle races to the already action-packed weekend schedule at the following rounds in 2018:
The Fantic eMTB races will be held Friday afternoon and will feature 7 classes, with no pre-qualifying: Pro, Schoolboy (12-18), Junior (19-29), Vet (30-39), Senior (40-49), Masters (50+) and Women. Races will be one hour events, with laps approximately three miles in length. The race course will be challenging, featuring many traditional GNCC-style obstacles, i.e., hills, rocks, woods sections, etc.
Class 1 Pedal Assist Bicycles with a motor powered speed of 20 mph and motor wattage of <=750 watts eligible only. A bicycle helmet and eye protection are required.
The entry fee is $30 and awards will be given at the rate of 1 per 3, with a minimum of 3 per class. Transponder scoring will be used; transponders can be rented or purchased at the events.
For 2018, the Fantic eMTB races will be non-points paying stand-alone events, with the plan to elevate the racing to full national championship status in 2019.
