What an incredible day at the 10th Annual Off-Road Cup. Lots of really intense racing action took place with many class positions being decided by just tens of seconds after nine plus hours of competition. Mother Nature couldn't have treated us any better and we saw so many smiling faces...no doubt lots of great memories were made.

We've got an 11 mile track for you this year, 25% of which is new trail that has never been raced on before. About halfway through the loop you'll be in sight of the pits so your teammates can see you. Our guess for a Pro rider is somewhere in the 28-30 minute range per lap. Your team will be riding fewer laps this year than you have in the past - this is the longest Off-Road Cup track we've ever had. Fewer laps means fewer rider exchanges.
Check the Registration page for a link to the full hand drawn image previewed here...different setup this year, be aware.
All Rider Exchanges MUST be made in the designated area.
We will not be using a “normal” Off-Road Cup pit area this year. There will be a designated “Rider Exchange” area, but it will be short, small, and no canopies or permanent spots will be allowed there. You will be able to set up a pit (no vehicles or trailers) away from the course or riders can return to their vehicle in the campground. This is to ensure we are following social distancing protocols. Stay tuned for more information...
Contact Panther Creek for all camping/facility info at 573-793-2372. They'll be hosting an all you can eat spaghetti supper Friday night starting at 6:30 for $10. Concessions available all day Saturday including breakfast starting at 6:30.

Remember this is a REGIONAL series vs series event, so the class you compete in at ORC should be the same skill level class you compete in at your regional series events.
Here's a guide for which class your team should be in based on skill levels:
If the team is AAA, AAB or AAC riders = A level class or higher
If the team is BBB, BBA or BBC riders = B level class or higher
If the team is CCC, CCA or CCB riders = C level class or higher
If the team is ABC riders = B level class or higher
**Family, +50, Ladies, Junior & all Iron class are not based on skill levels**
