Rules & Info

Start time is 9 am CDT for all live racers

RACERS IN OTHER TIME ZONES may compete independently at their local time on Sunday, April 6, 2025, at 9 am, but MUST manually submit their results on ErgZone within 24 hours of completing the event at their local time.

COMPETING ON AN OLDER MODEL ERG? You can still compete if your erg doesn't have a PM5 monitor. You won't be able to connect to live racing on ErgZone, but once you manually submit your score on the ErgZone app, it will count in our official results and rankings.

Anyone competing in the Ergon Metron Series Cup MUST race on the scheduled race day of the event and at its scheduled start time (virtually or offline) to remain in contention for the EM Series Cup Championship. If you miss the official start time, you can still submit your 1K score on ErgZone until 30 days post-event to earn your Ergon Metron Master Cap, but you will be out of contention for the overall Championship title.
