I attest that I am physically fit and capable of participating in the Events and I will sufficiently prepare in order to complete the Events entered. I agree to ride in a safe manner and I will use good judgment and be self-reliant and I may request assistance from Cycle America especially if I am unsure of my ability to complete any segment of the Events safely.

I understand and agree that this document may be used as evidence by Cycle America to defend any claims made as a result of my participation in the Events.
