Race Finishes:

  • The race officially ends for all contestants at the completion of the lap in which the checkered flag is displayed to the overall winner.
  • To be considered as having completed a lap, the rider, with his helmet on, and his machine must cross the plane of the checkered flag under the rider’s own unaided ability. No credit will be given for any distance covered during which time the rider’s helmet was removed.
  • Racers whose disabled vehicles are towed back to the pit area by staff or otherwise, for any reason, are not eligible to return to competition. Any laps earned by a racer that returns to competition after receiving a tow back to the pit area will be removed.  If a racer desires to repair their machine and return to competition, they must decline the offer to tow their machine back to the pit area.  This rule does not apply to racers towed only a short distance in order to dislodge the vehicle from a track obstacle (i.e. mud pit, deep rut, ravine, etc.).
  • Riders will be scored in order of finish and laps completed. It is not necessary to complete all laps in order to be scored.
  • Once the checkered flag is waved for the overall winner, racers have 1 1/2 times the overall leaders last lap to complete their race.  For example: if the leaders last lap of the race was 20 minutes, the race will be final 30 minutes after the checkered flag was flown.  Once that time has lapsed, all scoring will stop.
  • Unofficial race results will be posted approximately 30 minutes after scoring has stopped.  Race results are official when they have been posted under the Race Results section of the Extreme XC website.
  • Any protest must be turned in to the scoring trailer EXCR officials within 30 minutes of unofficial results being posted at the physical race location. Protests must be made in writing, can only be made by a racer competing in said race, with the appropriate fees.  See Protests section under general rules for more information. 
  • Race results are not official until they are posted on the EXCR website.
  • Any penalties that were necessary during a race will be completed before official results are posted. All penalties will be at the sole discretion of EXCR race officials based on the severity of the offense, and may include, but not be limited to, forfeit of position(s), forfeit of lap(s), time adjustment, disqualification, suspension, loss of championship points, fines, probation, etc.
