Rule of the Week – License changes for 2014

If you have not renewed your license yet, there are some things about your license that USA Cycling has changed for 2014.

(Reprinted from http://www.iowabicycleracing.org/, by Jeff Mertz.)

This year they are implementing what is called the new “One License”, previously when purchasing a license it was good for Road & Cross or MTB & Cross. To add MTB or Road to your license you needed to purchase a $30 “add-on” license to cover the other discipline for the year or pay for a One-Day license to race that “other” discipline for the day. If you were racing on a One-day, you were not eligible for a State Championship.

In 2014 with all three disciplines are wrapped up into one license, you do not need to purchase a One-Day license if you are a roadie and want to race mountain bikes, or a mountain biker who wanted to race the road. It also means, because you have an annual license for all 3 disciplines, you can race for state championships in all three disciplines.

They have also changes some of the race license fee structure. Continue reading

Norfolk TT Series Returns

Norfolk-Race-Series-featured-size-300x166[1]The Norfolk Time Trial Series makes its return after a brief hiatus with three events for 2014.

Races will be held on May 20, June 17 and July 15.

As always, the Norfolk TT series is free and, while times are calculated with winners declared, no prizes are awarded.

The course is a rolling 10 mile out-and-back course on an open course. The first rider is sent off at 7PM sharp, with successive riders given the “Go” at one minute intervals. A rider’s meeting precedes each night’s racing at 6:45PM.

In years past, there were divisions for beginners and seasoned racers divided into three categories. This format will be adopted again this year.
