For other classes, bib assignments will be made in a 3-step process: 1) the first 4 bibs will be assigned in order of the riders' Super 8 series rankings from 2015; 2) bibs will then be assigned in order of the riders' current overall CrossResults rankings; 3) lastly, any riders who are unranked in CrossResults will be assigned bibs in order of the date & time of registration.
Staging Procedure: Riders will fill the starting grid by bib number, 8 riders at a time, as specified in the USA Cycling Cyclocross rulebook when so directed by the officials; the officials will fill any gaps left by DNS or late-arriving riders as appropriate. ALL RIDERS MUST ASSEMBLE IN THE PRE-STAGING CHUTE NO LATER THAN 10 MINUTES BEFORE THEIR START! Riders arriving late to staging will be staged in the next available row or at the back of the starting grid.
