Collegiate riders race within the Men's Elite, 3, or Cat 4 and Women's Elite and 3/4 races and will be scored both within those fields and within their corresponding collegiate categories. To be eligible for collegiate scoring, riders must register under their proper collegiate team name and race in their collegiate team kit.

For separate starts, groups are staged with a gap, stay where they are on the line, and are started at 60-second intervals.

In all categories, all riders will be lined up by race number.
For UCI categories (Elite/U23 Men, Women), race numbers will be assigned by UCI points, then random drawing of lots. For USAC categories that score Verge Series points, race numbers will be assigned by Verge Series points, then crossresults.com rankings, then order of registration. For the Cat 4 Men's race, numbers will be assigned by crossresults.com rankings, then order of registration.

Elite Men's prizes have 2% deducted from the prize list for the UCI Riders' Contribution to the Fight Against Doping.
