Q: How do I register a team?

A: The League Director must invite a Team to register.  Once an invite is sent the Team Director (the main point of contact for the team) will receive the invite email from the Pit Zone.  Click on the invite via the email and follow the registration process.  A team must complete registration and payment before the proof of insurance can be processed.  When a certificate of insurance has been issued, the team is clear to begin team practice.  Click here for more information on Fall Season Training Limits and Pre-Season Approval Form. If you would like to register a team, reach out to kate@coloradomtb.org .

Q: How do I know if a team is ready to practice (i.e. is fully insured)?

A: The Team Director will receive an email from the League Director, confirming their insurance is processed.  At the same time, the Pit Zone will automatically update the Team’s registration status as complete.

Q: How do I change the Head Coach and/or Team Director?

A: This must be done by the League Director. Contact them and ask them to make the change.  It is important that the contact for the Head Coach/Team Director is accurate as they are the main point of contact between the league and the team.

Q: How do I come up with a Team Name, and why is this important?

To make clear in results what teams are composite teams and what teams are school-based teams, it is important that team names follow the team name guidelines: Use your official school name completely written out, for example, write out “Lakewood.” Do not use words such as “Club, Team, MTB, or Racing.” Composite teams should use their local name plus the word “Composite,” for example “Grand Valley Composite.” These names show up in team result pages.  You can make changes to your team name under team properties when you login to the Pit Zone as a Team Director.

Q: How do I know if a team should be Divison 1, 2 or 3?

In the Colorado League, Division 1 teams are teams of 30 or more riders. Division 2 teams are teams with 13 to 29 riders. Divison 3 teams with 12 or less riders. It is important that a team’s division is accurate in the Pit Zone.  Email your League Director if you are uncertain about which division a team should be in. You can update your Division by clicking your team properties in the upper right-hand corner of your team dashboard.

Team Division determination must be finalized by the first race registration deadline.


Q: Why do I have a Red Exclamation mark next to my name?

The Red Exclamation mark indicates that a coach is missing one of the requirements to confirm their coach license.  If you hover over the Red Exclamation mark, it will list what items are missing.  If you are missing a coach waiver, download the waiver and mail it to the address on the waiver.  If you are missing the NICA Background Check you can complete this requirement through NICA’s provider, TC Logiq. To complete the online CDC concussion training just click this link.  Any other coaching questions, please email coachlicensing@nationalmtb.org.  

Q: How do I delete riders that will no longer be racing on our team?

As a coach, you do not have the ability to delete riders but you can mark them “inactive”.  Click on the rider under your team, and click in the upper right-hand corner “deactivate rider.”  We recommend deactivating riders that are no participating on the team.  If you need someone deleted from your roster, contact registration@nationalmtb.org.

Q: I invited a rider to the Pit Zone, but they can’t find their invitation link?

Go to your team page, and find the rider’s email.  If it is still gray with the email address versus the rider name in blue the rider has not clicked on the invitation link.  Once you click on the rider, you will see the unique invitation link they need to click on to register in the orange box. Click the blue “edit and re-send the invitation link.”  Then click Re-send Rider Invitation.  If the link is not there, that means they have already started the registration process.  Have them login to the Pit Zone using the email address you invited them to the Pit Zone with.  If they forgot their password, there is a forgot password link.


Q: How do I register through the Pit Zone?

You should receive an invitation email from the Pit Zone, which occurs once your coach has added you to their team.  If you can not find this email or did not receive it, first check with your coach to make sure they invited you (show them the answer to “I invited a rider to the Pit Zone, but they can’t find their invitation link?” above under Coaches Pit Zone Questions).  Once you have clicked on the invitation link, follow the registration process, filling in all information.  Make sure to print off the waivers at the end of the process and pay your league fee.  You will not be Race Ready until your waivers and league fee are paid.  You will know if you are still missing these items, if when you login, there is a message that you are missing them.

Q: I can’t remember my email/username to login?

To login to the Pit Zone you must use the email that your coach would have invited you to the Pit Zone with (usually the parent’s email). Once you start the registration process, you can switch the login email if you’d like.  If you are a parent and are trying to login for your son/daughter, make sure to use the email address that is associated was provided to a coach.  If you forgot your password, click on the forgot password link.

Q: I entered incorrect information (e.g. birthdate, medical information), how do I change this?

Some information you can re-login and change.  Trying doing this first.  If you are unable to change the information, contact registration@coloradomtb.org (remember to include your league, team, and rider name).

Q: How do I know what category to choose?

Categories are based on a rider’s grade and last year’s results.  For first year leagues or for riders racing for their first year, categories are as follows:

  • Freshman = Freshman
  • Sophomore = Sophomore
  • Junior or Varsity = JV

Returning riders will be assigned a race category based on their previous race results. For any rider racing, who raced at least one season with the league, their category is based on their grade and previous year’s results.  Each rider must check the Category Placement Table to see which category they will race for the current season.

NOTE: If your category upgrades beyond your grade. It will be updated in the Pit Zone after you register and beforo the first race of the season. PLEASE double-chedk your profile to ensure your category is accurate.

Please refer to this

Category Placement Table

A petition must be submitted if a rider would like to change their assigned category. Petitions must be received 7 days prior to the race day. Here are links to petitions:

Q: My school or area does not have a team, how do I register?

Q: How do I know if I am “Race Ready” and what does Race Ready mean?

Race Ready means you have 1. Completed your registration information in the Pit Zone. 2. Paid your league fee. 3. Sent in your waivers.  You know you are Race Ready if when you login to the Pit Zone you don’t see any messages about sending in your waivers or paying your league fee.  You will also see under your “Rider Information” on the left-hand side a note: Race Ready: YES.

Q: I think I have been double charged, what should I do?

Check with your bank statements.  If you can identify the additional charge, please send this documentation and comments to registration@coloradomtb.org (remember to indicate to your league, team, and name).
