2. GENERAL REGULATIONS
The Marathon Cup MTB calendar will consist of XCC and XCM races, and falls under the current regulations of the technical commission of the Catalan Cycling Federation (FCC by its Catalan abbreviation). Only points from the XCM category will officially count towards the Catalan Marathon Cup.
Each event is regulated by its own rules, since races may vary in terms of schedules, registration fees, etc. For this reason, we recommend reading through each event’s specifications, which are available on the official website.
For the XCM category, points from the events in Cambrils (26/04/2020) and Girona (30/05/2020) will count towards UCI MTB MARATHON SERIES ranking. These events will be regulated by the rules of the International Cycling Union (ICU) and Part VI of its current regulations.
