Call For Proposals: State Championship CX Race

The CX season is fast approaching and we'd like to announce the final details for the calendar and points series within the next two weeks.  Before we can, we need to select the state championship cyclocross race.  If you would like your race to be considered for state championship designation and you haven't already contacted MBRA - do so now by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Requirements:
State championship events need to have the following fields/categories for registration:

  • Men: Cat 1/2, Cat 3, Cat 4, Cat 5, Masters 35+, Masters 45+, Masters 55+
  • Women: Cat 1/2, Cat 3, Cat 4 
  • Junior Women: Ages 9-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18
  • Junior Men: Ages 9-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18

Note that additional fields/categories may be added at the discretion of the race promoter. Women, Juniors, and Masters races may be started together and/or run concurrently, but must be scored separately for awards. The MBRA will provide state champion jerseys to the winner of the above categories.  The MBRA will further provide medals to the top three in categories 3, 4, and 5 for the age groups: 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64 and 65+.  In prior years some age groups have been run as separate fields - this is no longer a requirement for a state championship event and is left to the discretion of the race promoter.  Once selected, a race will hold the state championship designation for one year with the option to renew for 2016.  

If you are a race promoter and would like to apply, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and notify him of your intent by 11:59PM on August 31st.  After submitting your notice of intent - a full proposal featuring a draft of your race flier, course map, and tech guide is expected by 11:59PM on September 7th.  The selection and official announcement will be made on or before September 10th.

Wednesday Night Waterford Worlds Race Cancelled on August 19th

Attention all Waterford Worlds racers - spread the word: 

To all,

I'm afraid we've had to cancel the Aug 19th Wednesday night race and reschedule it to Sept 2nd (both Bruce LeBlance & I are away on business). Race start times remain the same.

So please tell your team mates and anybody else you see about the postponement.

Cheers,

Pete Newbury
