Mountain bike XC races are scored according to category (Expert Cat 1, Intermediate Cat 2, Beginner Cat 3, Junior) and class (age).

The number of laps, or course length, will vary between courses but will take into consideration time frames listed above. In other words expect to race about the same time at each course, with consideration to trail conditions.
