What happens if I qualify for a wave and it's full?
First, we are going to do our best to update waves as quickly as possible so we can communicate which waves are still open. However, it is manual process so it may take us a few days to verify times and place you in your correct wave. If the wave you qualified for and wanted is full, you will be automatically placed in the next available wave.
What if I only have one or two races completed out of the last five years?
Please average the times you do have from 2017-2019 & 2021 and use this number as your qualifying time.
I’d like to ride with my significant other, best friend, aunt, 3rd cousin twice removed, etc. Can we do that?
Yes, you can all apply for the same wave as long as you all qualify for that wave. In other words, base your wave request off of the person with the slowest times in your group.
I am a first-time rider. Any advice?
Spots are available in wave 29 and back for first time riders. Please choose the wave you’d like to be in. If you feel that you should be placed in a faster wave. You will have an opportunity to reach out in the late summer/early fall to request a placement change. This will occur after the transfer out/transfer in period has concluded.
My son/daughter is riding in Iceman Junior, can I ride with them?
While Bell’s Iceman Cometh, Bell’s Iceman Cometh Challenge Pro Race, and Iceman Junior may all follow the same course; they are separate races. Your child should be comfortable with the 30 mile course before taking to the race. If you or your child is not comfortable with the race course, we can easily transfer them to the Meijer Slush Cup.
