Challenge and join the race to determine the top teams in

move from city to city as shops, friends and sponsors field
their very best to race for top team honors. This year's competition
promises to be more exciting than ever.

dimension to the racing, plus donate to such a worthwhile
Get your roster together and sign up for what promises to
be another action packed season of team racing. All mountain
bike teams are invited to participate in the Texas Team Challenge,
to be held in conjunction with the 2016 Texas XC Mountain Bike State Championship Series.
The team manager must fill out a roster for each rider
on the team. This list of riders must list the Name (as it
will appear at registration or it will not get scored), Gender, Age (as of 12/31/2016),
Class, Category. The team managers email address
must also be included. The roster MUST list ALL riders that
are allowed to participate under your teams banner. If a team
member is not listed on your roster their score will not count
for team points until officially added to your roster by the
Between races, you may modify you team roster to move races to a different category & class.
This includes adding or dropping members, or category upgrades.
Team members added mid-season will only qualify for points
earned after the addition. The notification of upgrades is
important, so the scorekeeper will know where to look for
When registering at each race, please have team members include
the EXACT "Team Name" that your team is using.
A racer's points may only be used by one registered team during
a season. If a racer changes teams at any time during the
series, his points will not count for the old team or the
new team. Any changes MUST BE RECEIVED by email
no later than the Wednesday before the next race event and the $5
per rider fee must be paid for points to be counted......NO
We recommend that you have at least five riders on your team,
an unlimited maximum number of team racers are allowed.
PLEASE NOTE: Your team and it's members are solely responsible
for 100% correct team roster forms and proper race event registration!!!!!
The name on the roster must EXACTLY match the names entered
at registration. The most common reason for missed points
is misspelled names. Jonathan Doe is not John Doe or Johnny Doe.
By submitting a roster team managers agree to the following
"code of ethics"
1. Team managers will not "stack" their roster with
riders who are not actually a part of the team. Adding racers
who ride for another team that is not involved with the Texas
Team Challenge is not allowed and those points will not count.
2. The Team Challenge team name MUST
appear on the race results.
3. Team managers agree to encourage racers to upgrade when they meet the mandatory
upgrade requirements or when the rider’s ability obviously
warrants the upgrade.
4. Team managers will not encourage "sandbagging"
by asking a racer to stay down to obtain team challenge points. If this is seen happening, those points will not count.
The top FIVE highest placing finishers for each team will determine
the team's total score for each race event. The best EIGHT out of FOURTEEN race events will count.
If you have less than five eligible racers to score, the empty
spots will receive a score of "zero". If you finish,
but not within the top thirty racers in your class you will
also receive a "zero".
1) There is a $5.00 charge per team member. The team, it's sponsors,
or individual team members may pay this fee. The fee is a
one-time charge for the entire series.
When a racer is added to your team, the fee MUST be paid at
that time. No refunds from reductions to your roster and fees
are non-transferable. This fee will be used strictly for administrative
costs, trophies, banners and other expenses.
2) A donation of $75.00 per team will go into a cash fund to
be presented to IMBA in the winning team's
name at the end of the Championship Series
The winning team will have their team name permanently engraved
on the Team Challenge travel trophy. First place team will receive a trophy
and a banner: the second though fifth place teams will receive
