In the interest of fair competition BFC has and will continue to use the widely accepted guidelines for tire size: To be eligible for prizes CX tire width must not exceed 40mm and MTB tire width must be at least 1.95″.
The BFC Competition Director felt it necessary to reiterate this policy due to the proliferation of different bike styles and tire sizes that have come to the race in recent years.
As always, we will not be checking tires sizes. Competitive racers must self-police this standard. If there is a protest, take it to the scorers table and if necessary bikes and/or tires may be inspected for compliance.
MTB is essentially BFC’s ‘open’ category with a variety of bikes and tires. However, if you want to be eligible for prizes your bike and tires should comply with generally accepted standards.
