2017 Earned National Numbers are now posted.
NATIONAL NUMBER GUIDELINES
National Numbers will be assigned based on overall finishes in a minimum of nine (9) events, with as many as 11 events counting. The minimum number of events does not have to be in the same class, but must be in the same discipline.
Micro National Numbers will be assigned based on overall finishes in a minimum of four (4) events, with as many as six (6) events counting. The minimum number of events does not have to be in the same class, but must be in the same discipline.
Final National Numbers for 1 p.m. Pro Race participants will be awarded to the top 20 overall first, regardless of number of events entered, then to remaining afternoon riders. Bike Numbers 111 through 119, and 174 are reserved for visiting champions. Final National Numbers for 10 a.m. Amateur Race participants will start at number 201. A rider with an earned number has the option to reserve a higher number, if available.
Beginning December 12, 2016 - EARNED NUMBER CONFIRMATION:
Riders earning a National Number in 2016 are ranked and have been assigned 2017 National Numbers accordingly. It is not uncommon for riders to request a different number for competition, resulting in many unused numbers throughout the racing season. To help alleviate this problem, we request that all riders who have earned a national number confirm that they will be using their assigned national number. Or, in the event they desire to use a different number, that they request to do so. It is important to know what division you will be competing in (i.e., AM or PM), as a number earned in the 10 a.m. race will not transfer to the 1 p.m. race, and vice versa, unless requested by the rider.

Beginning December 26, 2016 - UNEARNED NUMBER RESERVATION REQUEST:
In addition to the riders who earned a 2017 National Number, riders who participated in at least six (6) GNCC events in 2016 and who anticipate competing in at least six (6) GNCC events in 2017, may also request a number.
If you have a favorite unearned number that you have reserved in the past, it is necessary for you to reserve that number for next season, as we do not carry-over unearned national numbers.

Beginning January 9, 2017 - EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES:
Riders who do not meet the above requirements for various reasons (i.e., injury), but met the same requirements in 2016, may submit a request citing why they did not meet the requirements for 2017 and requesting a reserved number. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
