Potomac Vintage Riders
Leading the US Mid-Atlantic region
AHRMA
MID-ATLANTIC 
CROSS COUNTRY 
SERIES 

Potomac Vintage Riders sponsors the 10 round AHRMA Mid-Atlantic region Vintage and Post Vintage Cross Country series. Vintage is for bikes built typically before 1975 and Post-Vintage is for bikes built from 1975 – 1988. There are Disk Brake (Pre-Modern, Early-Modern, etc.) classes up to 1999. See race flyers at  www.ahrmaMA.org for more specifics on bike eligibility as brake type, suspension travel and bike year all play into it.


All classes are further divided into AA, Expert, Intermediate and Novice skill levels. Courses are usually 3.5 – 5.0 miles long and offer a wide range of challenging trail conditions from woods single track, mud/rocks/roots, hills, grass track and two-track logging/fire roads.  

Announcing... New & Improved... Top Racer Awards!
THREE "TOP RIDER OF THE YEAR!" Awards for 2021!

   OVERALL VINTAGE Champion!
   OVERALL POST-VINTAGE Champion!

   OVERALL DISK BRAKE Champion!

  • The Overall Class Championships will be open to Expert racers who sign-up in the AA class ONLY! 
  • AA class has no rider age limit or bike displacement limit.
  • AA class will start on the front row in each race. 
  • An Expert can choose to race "AA" in one (or two!) race series and remain as "Expert" in the other(s).
  • An AA class racer’s 6 best “Overall” placement scores count towards the Overall Championship Award presented at the end of the year. 
  • An AA class racer’s overall placement score in each race is determined by their overall finishing position against ALL other racers in that race. 

 

  How scoring works 1 point for a first “overall” win, 2 points for a second “overall”,

6 points for sixth, etc. Lowest point total wins.


Examples:

6 first overall race wins = 6 points (a perfect score!)
3 first overall wins (3 pts.), 2 seconds (4), 1 third (3) = 10 points
4 overall wins (4), 1 third (3), 1 fourth (4) = 11 points


  Tiebreakers
Greater number of wins, higher placements, etc.
If exact tie then older rider.


In addition, there are Age classes for riders 50+, 60+ and 70+ in Vintage and Post-Vintage categories. Racers must be a minimum of 16 years of age to enter.


For cross country, bike displacement classes are 88 to 200cc and 201cc+ Open. All races are about 1 hour or more. Vintage race starts in the morning. Around noon, the Post-Vintage racers have their race, after that Disk Brake (Pre-Modern, etc.) bikes take to the track. The benefit of a three race format is it allows you to bring a different bike for each race for maximum seat time....if desired!  Awards are presented to the top winners in each class. It is great time reliving the past with a friendly and knowledgeable like-minded group.
