Frequently Ask Questions
If I only want to read one thing, what is it?
What is the deadline to register and retain my qualified gate position?
Gate positions are held for ANQ qualified riders ONLY until June 24th – if you have not registered for your desired classes prior to June 24th your gate position is not held regardless of your finish position. We DO NOT hold your ANQ gate position in the hopes you will show up at the line.
This is a limited entry event. Riders are encouraged to participate in at least one Amateur National Qualifier event (ANQ) in addition to pre-entering. Entry priority is determined by the Regional ANQ series’ results and regional entry allocation. Additional regional entries and entries for lower qualified riders will be accepted if allocated positions are not filled. Entry timestamps do come into play in the case of a “0” points tie after full regional allocations have taken place. The bracketed number (x) below is the minimum number of guaranteed pre-entry gate positions allocated per region for each ANQ Championship.
The Walton TransCan is a limited entry event. There are 42 gate positions available for each class. In addition, standby positions are assigned to participate in practice and be available to ‘fill-in’ up until the gate drop of the first moto.
Gate positions are held open with an appropriate number of gates in every class allocated by the number of racers in each region of Canada. If the allocated gate positions of a region are not filled by the close of pre-entry on June 24th they are returned to the pool of available gate positions. If entries received from a region exceed the region’s allocated amount, those entries will only be accepted if there are gate positions available from the pool of available gate positions.
Riders are ranked for the Walton TransCan. The ranking is based on the Amateur National Qualifiers (ANQ) in order to ensure that Canada’s best athletes make it to the limited start gate. ANQ events are those regional events identified by the TransCan as being most representative of each region’s talent. It is the responsibility of the riders to ensure that any ANQ results are posted in their region accurately. Date of entry is used as a tiebreaker in ranking points.
Failure to participate in ANQs results in received rider entries being ranked after all ANQ participant entries. Low ranking results in late gate pick for the first moto. In a full class, you will not get a starting position. If a TransCan entry does not get ranked through at least one ANQ participation they will only be eligible to enter as a post entry. Confirmation of non-participants entries is delayed until all ANQ participating entries are confirmed.
Riders are encouraged to achieve their best possible result in ANQs, pre-enter TransCan before June 24th for maximum savings and thereby get their best start gate position for the first moto and best assurance of being on the line as one of 42 of the finest from across the country.
What if my region doesn’t have an ANQ
If your region does not have an ANQ, you can ride ANQs in as many regions and in as many classes as you like and then pick the results which give you the best entry position. Better yet, sign up today! The earlier you register, the better your odds of receiving a gate position once the ANQ series is complete.
If your qualifier series position is lower than your region’s allocated positions, you may still get a starting position based on riders that qualified in your region but did not enter the GNC. If other regions’ entries do not fill their allocated positions, these will be filled based on the date an entry is received.
I’ve heard of Waitlist Entries (also called Standby Entries) – what are they?
When the gate is full for a given class, we maintain a list of riders who want to ride in that particular class. If there are cancellations or no-shows, the gate will be filled from the waitlist in the order entries are ranked.
