1. Elite category is also open for all men who want to race irrespective of age. But this category has an experience barrier since this is the category where most of the professionals take part in. It is better to have a good level of experience to enroll into Elite category otherwise it might cause inconvenience for the entire peloton due to lack of bike handling skills and general racing experience.
Note: Whoever competes in Elite category should stick to Elite category for the rest of the season, they can’t go back to Amateur in other Road/MTB races of this season. – All racers who have represented their individual states or UTs have to compulsorily compete at the Elite category.

5. Men Masters (40+) category is for anybody who is above 40 years and above of age. Master category was created to cater participants who think they can compete against elites who are younger. We need a minimum of 10 participants on Race Day in the Men Master Category. In case of lesser number of participation on the race day, then the Men Master category will be merged with Elite Category and all riders will share the same podium irrespective of their age. This category will mirror the distances that the Elite category races at. Note: Whoever participates in Men Master should stick to the Master category for the rest of the season, they can’t go back to Amateur/Elite in other road races of this season.
6. Women Master (40+) category is for anybody who is above 40 years. The Women Master category is created to cater to women participants who think they can compete against women who are younger.
We need a minimum of 10 participants on Race Day in the Women Master Category. In case of lesser number of participation on the race day, then the Women Master category will be merged with Women Category and all women riders will share the same podium irrespective of their age. This category will mirror the distances that the women category races at. Note: Whoever participants in the Women Master category should stick to the Women Master category for the rest of the season, they cannot go back to Women category in other road races of the current season.

BBCh Race Disclaimer:
Kindly Note: Bangalore Bicycle Championships is totally run by volunteers and we are extremely short of hands. In the event or pre-event or post-event there may be few human errors which are completely unintentional. To sort out those errors or issues we might take some time which may seem longer than usual but again that is because of the crunch of resources. We understand that these events are run by the registration fees collected from the participants and naturally the participants can expect the basic error free running of the event. But we sincerely request all to bear with us for any delay. Thank you for your understanding.
