U25 Elite Development Draft Legal Race
U25 Draft Legal Rules
The Clermont Challenge staged the first ever age group draft legal race in the country back in 2010. Today, we are proud to deliver again with TWO DAYS of exciting U25 Elite Development Sprint Races which will bring top talent from around the country to race draft legal. Based on the high desire to race in these races, we expect the race fields to fill very quickly.
The race is limited to 75 female and 75 male athletes. The minimum age requirement is 16 years of age and a maximum age of 25 years of age (age on 12/31/19). We will grant special entry to athletes older than 25 years of age on a case by case basis. Please contact Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to race draft legal but are older than 25 years of age.
The first three (3) finishers in both Day 1 and Day 2 of the U25 Elite Development Races will become eligible for a USAT Elite Triathlete License. Elite license holders and non-U.S. athletes are permitted to start in the race, however, elite eligibility spots will roll down to the next amateur provided he or she is within five percent (5%) of the first amateur's overall time. Also note, participants with the ages of 16 to 19 years old may earn points to their Junior Elite National Ranking.
This race follows all ITU competition and equipment rules.
