Competition Format

The Concept2 Model D ergometer will be used for all events. Competitors may select a damper setting of their choice but may not be changed during the race. All race times and finishes will be determined by the Race Venue software.

For age group races, unless entry numbers are high for each age group, these different events will race at the same time. However, separate awards will still be given for male and female winner(s) in each age group event.

Each flight will have 8 ergs. Please note times MAY CHANGE on race day. Please be present 1-hour before your scheduled race time. Weigh-Ins must occur 2-hours prior to race time.

Age Determining Date

TBD (day of competition)


Registration includes a cotton t-shirt. Athletes have the option to upgrade their cotton shirt to a dri-fit shirt for an additional $12.00 until January 10.


Awards sponsored by Grinnell Mutual

Medals for first, second and third place will be awarded in each event (not flight).

Awards may be picked up from the registration table when results are posted. Medals must be picked up the day of the event and will not be mailed after the event.
