2016 Policy and Fee Changes

A renewed focus on grassroots development and anti-doping

RFHavens 0 3048 Article rating: No rating

Since starting as CEO at USA Cycling this summer, I’ve received a lot of very helpful feedback from our members on a number of issues and areas of concern. As I’ve mentioned in past emails and blog entries, some of the top items that our membership feels most strongly about are anti-doping and an increased focus on amateur racing. As we move into the new year, these issues are at the forefront of our 2016 policy changes.

Through close collaboration with all constituents— from the positive and passionate to the frustrated— we've quickly built plans that start to show real change. I think we have found excellent ways to start to address these issues without putting an unreasonable cost onto our members, which was an important goal for us.

Highlighting the policy changes are: an increased Local Association rebate, which will put more money into the hands of those that manage amateur racing at the local level; a reduction in the one-day beginner license fee for road, track and cyclo-cross events from $15 to $10, thereby reducing a key barrier to entry; improved economics for mountain bike promoters, with a $5 rebate on one-day licenses, the elimination of permitting fees and the removal of the need for one-day licenses for practice days; and the addition of a RaceClean anti-doping surcharge to upper-category racers that will be used to significantly increase the number of anti-doping tests in the U.S. next year, particularly at the amateur level.

In 2015, Local Associations received a $10 rebate for each adult racing membership sold in their regions, which is intended to help grow and improve amateur racing on a local level. In 2016, Local Associations will still receive $10, plus $0.17 per competitive racer day, increasing grassroots funding by roughly 20 percent. Additionally, LAs will no longer be required to contribute to the USA Cycling RaceClean program, saving each LA up to $3,500 per year.

Membership fees for domestic racers will not increase, but a $5 RaceClean anti-doping surcharge will be added to Category 1 mountain bike, and Category 2 and 3 road, track and cyclo-cross memberships. A $25 RaceClean anti-doping surcharge will be added to pro mountain bike and Category 1 road, track and cyclo-cross memberships, and a $50 RaceClean anti-doping surcharge will be added to UCI pro road licenses.

USA Cycling Club of the Year!

RFHavens 0 1871 Article rating: No rating

The 2015 Club of the Year applications have opened and we encourage you to nominate your club!

Each year, USA cycling awards three "Overall Club of the Year" designations as well as ten special awards focused on specific disciplines and niche clubs. These awards are designed to recognize clubs that have made exceptional efforts to develop programs and promote cycling. Past clubs have been involved in everything from junior rider development to hosting women’s cycling clinics.

Some, like the Northwest Cycling Club have programs that encourage riders to give back and volunteer in the community.

The selection committee will choose one winner for each division (I, II and III) and each special award (Junior, Interscholastic, Masters, Women, Best New Club, Track, Mountain Bike, Collegiate Varsity, Collegiate Club and Cyclo-cross). Clubs may only apply for one award. It is recommended that clubs start thinking about this at the beginning of the year and keep the awards in mind as they plan their programs and racing season.

For more information on past winners and the application process, click here. Clubs that are selected for the club of the year award receive 2016 club membership with USA Cycling and are also featured in articles on our website and in monthly newsletters.

Applications are due Monday, November 30, 2015 and winners will be announced on our website on December 15, 2015 so don’t put this opportunity off.

Updates and Info

If you have any suggestions, please let Robert know. Try to be resonably specific if you can as it helps in the long run. Remember to update your links for the CCA Offcial website to carolinascycling.org. We have setup web forwarding from our old site address.

With the last update/rebuild of this site in early April, we are happy to report that the benefit of increased speed and response time for the pages to load is dramatically increased. Additional security measures were also put into place as we look ahead to future updates. 

We are constantly looking to make improvements to this website, from how we manage information dislay to maintenance. Now that the CCA Annual meeting is complete and the base calendar set, we are building the events calendar with many new features. We have all events from that list added. Some of the event info is basic until either the promoter provides it to me (Robert) or I pull it from the USA Cycling website once you start the permit process there. We do ask that you information always include the name and date(s) of your event. For the maps integration, we ask that you include an accurate address to the staging site or parking area for your event(s). Also new, is the ability for us to add some details to your event listing. This should be in plain text format and be reasonable length (i.e. not all the info from your flyer) but maybe some good info that is not on your flyer.
