On behalf of the race committee, welcome to the 44th edition of the Joe Martin Stage Race, the
oldest continually held stage race in the United States. For those who are first time participants, we
want to thank you for making the trip.

We know the last 18 months have been a struggle for many in the cycling community and our
industry has been harder hit than others. But, we have all sacrificed and perservered to make it to
the start and please know we are very appreciative of you toeing the line with us!

We salute the dedication and hard work of the many men and women who have worked over all
these years to make this event what it has become today! And we are especially grateful for the
vision and determination of one of the original race directors, Joe Martin. Joe was truly passionate
about all things cycling and we continue to honor his legacy today. THANK YOU JOE!

This is our 19th consecutive year to be part of the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour (PRT) and 7th year
on the UCI Americas Tour calendar. The Joe Martin Stage Race has been and continues to be
successful because of your support as teams and individuals. We feel very fortunate to once again
have some of the top cyclists not only from across the USA, but from around the world competing in
Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas.

The continued goal of the Joe Martin Stage Race is to bring a nationally and internationally
competitive field of cyclists to our area and to expose our community to an exciting, colorful sport. I
encourage you to enjoy some of the local flavor, get to know our residents, and take in some of the
beautiful countryside as you’re rolling past. And we invite you and your family to return to our area
for vacation or possibly even relocate to our community.

It is an honor and a privilege to have each of you at our race, and we hope and pray that you will
have a safe, successful weekend. Please give our volunteers, our race committee or me feedback
on how we can continue to make the race even better in the years to come.

Best of luck and God bless,

Bruce Dunn
Race Director

•   Individual riders’ general classifications will be calculated by summing that rider’s time in all individual
    stages, taking into account any time bonuses and/or penalties. In cases where two or more riders are tied in
    their final general classifications, their order will be determined by adding the fractions of a second from the
    time trial. If this does not resolve the tie, the next method is adding their places obtained in each stage. If
    this does not suffice to break the tie, ties will be broken by place in the Criterium.
•   TIME CUTS: no time cuts will be enforced for USAC amateur categories.
•   Saturday results will be posted at the finish line; at the start of each race, adjacent to the podium at the
    Criterium on Sunday. Unofficial results will be sent by email and/or text to riders. Results will also be posted
    to the event web site after each stage.
•   Riders must complete 50% of the Criterium to be placed. Riders not completing 50% will be considered
    DNF for the stage and overall. Riders completing 50% or more who are pulled by the Chief Referee or
    designee will receive a pro-rated calculated finish time based upon the assumption the riders will continue
    to race at a slower speed. Riders about to be lapped in the Criterium will be pulled at the finish line by the
    officials and if applicable riders will be given a pro-rated time.
•   GC Time bonuses will be awarded in the Road Race and Criterium only. None in the Time Trial
    • Road Stage: Top 3 finishers: 10, 6 and 4 seconds, respectively
    • Time Trial: none
    • Criterium: Top 3 finishers: 6, 4 and 2 seconds, respectively.
JUNIORS INFORMATION
•   All juniors must use junior gearing. Blocked gears are permitted.
•   Roll outs will be performed for all junior riders prior to the start of each stage. See details below
•   Additionally, the top 3 junior finishers of these stages are subject to verification after the stage finish.
    • Saturday Road Race – roll out will occur 1 hour before the start of the rider’s race, near sign-in.
    • Saturday Time Trial - roll out will occur 30 minutes before the start of the rider’s race near the start house
    • Sunday Criterium – roll outs occur 15 minutes before the races in which any junior is participating
         behind the start/finish announcer’s stage and for the top 5 juniors at the finish of the race.

•   Start/Finish area is at the intersection of Center St. and Church Ave.
•   The course is 1.2 miles long, with a tough climb to the finish that will challenge the field as the race progresses.
•   THERE IS NO WARMING UP ON THE COURSE.
•   Riders must complete 50% of the Criterium to be placed. Riders not completing 50% will be considered DNF
    for the stage and overall. Riders completing 50% or more who are pulled by the Chief Referee or designee
    will receive a pro-rated calculated finish time based upon the assumption the riders will continue to race at a
    slower speed. Riders about to be lapped in the Criterium will be pulled at the finish line by the officials and if
    applicable riders will be given a pro-rated time.
•   Please refer to Course Maps section of the Technical Guide for more detailed information. CRITERIUM PARKING
