A link to important Final Reminders for this weekend's Off-Road Cup is posted on the Registration page along with the Gate &
Rider Release forms! Please read the entire "Final Reminders"
& make sure your teammates & crews know what's up too!
Please print the forms & bring with you to the event!
NOTE - ORC Staff will NOT have cell/internet service from Thursday throughout the event, so do NOT expect any additional communication from us! Cell service is VERY spotty at the race location - plan accordingly! See you in a few days!
Bonecutter Off Road will have their box van mobile store set up at ORC this weekend. They will have tubes, goggles, tear offs, oils, spark plugs, chains, filter stuff, hydration packs, etc. They’ll have a good stock of tires and bibs as well. If you want a tire changed, you’ll need to get that scheduled with them prior to the event start. They can be reached at 573-796-8685 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are using 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 the same setup we used in 2020 and it worked out well, so we are sticking with it. All Rider Exchanges MUST be made in the designated area. Check the Registration page for a link to the full image previewed here.
Gates will be open starting on Thursday. You can camp Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. LOTS of RV hookups & a shower house. The Panther Creek staff will handle all parking & RV sites. The gate form is available on the Registration page...print & sign & give to them at the gate. They'll be hosting an All You Can Eat supper Friday night starting at 6:30pm in the dining hall for $12. The menu includes fried chicken, mashed taters, country gravy, buttered corn, biscuits, salad bar, and dessert. Concessions will be available all day Saturday near the main field entrance. Menu includes biscuits & gravy, sausage egg biscuits & muffins for breakfast – cheese/hamburgers, pulled pork, nachos, loaded nachos, walking tacos, etc. throughout the day. For ALL “facility” information, please contact Panther Creek at 573-793-2372, Facebook at “Panther Creek Trail Rides”, email them at email@example.com and/or visit their website at www.panthercreektrailrides.com.

Remember this is a REGIONAL 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 classes are NOT
based on skill levels**
