Team Trials courses (Red & Blue), as part of a full USOF A-event & WRE, hosted by BAOC - thanks!

The team to represent the US at WOC 2009, to be held in Hungary, Auguest 18-23, will be selected based on these Team Trials races, and in part on the USOF rankings preceding the Trials. See, the detailed rules if desired.

Other US Team information can be found on the US Team Blog.

Registration Cutoff:

Was Tuesday, April 28, at 11:59pm. This was to allow the randon start draw to take place on the morning of April 29, after which time start times for the Trials and WRE were posted, and not changable.

If you register for M/F21 after this time, you may still be eligible for the A-event (and USOF ranking points) but you will not be eligible for the Team Trials.

Pre-Team-Trials Rankings:
Are here (although were corrected slightly due to a USOF rankings correction), and are based upon the USOF rankings as of April 30th, which are available at the USOF rankings site.  Along with the results of the 3 races, this scaled ranking is one of the 4 scores.

Start Info:

Random, each day, with Trialers segregated and starting earlier. Please note that if you miss your start time you will have the option of (a) starting as soon as you arrive at the start, with your official time starting at your originally scheduled start time (e.g. if you're 30 seconds late, you might want to do this), or (b) you may ask for a later start for A-meet purposes ONLY - your result will not be eligible for Team Trials or WRE if you reschedule your start time.
