Wave Seeding

2013 Iceman WAVE Seeding

With the 2013 Bell’s Beer Iceman categories based solely on age, and wave placement based on past results, we are anticipating that each wave of riders will be more evenly matched and should stick together as they progress down the trail more than in years past. Thus, we are increasing the number of start waves from 31 to 50 in order to reduce the number of riders in each wave. With 4,000 participants and 50 waves, that breaks down to approximately 80 riders in each wave. It also means that waves of riders will start every three minutes compared to every five minutes last year.

We will assign your wave number during the last week of October and add the wave assignment to each riders’ record in the rider confirmation system — So look for your wave assignment beginning October 27th. New Bell’s Beer Iceman riders without a seed time will be placed toward the back of the wave order and start with riders within their respective categories. (Waves 25–33.)

In the meantime, please check the confirmation system under the registration header at to ensure that we have a seed time for you if you have participated in one of the past five years of the Bell’s Beer Ice- man Cometh Challenge.


Seed time/Wave Start Look up.

*If you were assigned the wrong wave start, the changes will be made but not be reflected in the database.  Please check you wave assignment when you receive your number at packet pick-up.
