What Type of Membership is Required?

Riders can register at the event but it is to their disadvantage.Pre-registering reduces waiting in line the day of the event (the Pre-Reg line is always shorter and quicker) as well pre-registering makes sense economically. Entry fees for pre-registration are typically $8 less for XC and $10 less for DH than day-of entry fees.
