All racers will be assigned a bib number, within their age class, gender and Team. Racers will retain that bib number throughout the season. The field from each class and gender will be divided into 4 seed groups. Racers will be divided into 4 seed groups, assigned to achieve equal numbers of athletes from each club/ team in each seed. Within each seed, racers will be assigned a bib number based on date of registration. Seeds will be rotated throughout the season. A-B-C-D, then B-C-D-A, then C-
D-A-B, then D-A-B-C. CYSL participants keep their bibs as a souvenir at the end of the season.
The next season, new bibs will be ordered and racers will be randomly assigned a new bib number.
Racers who forget to bring their bib on race day will be issued a paper bib.
