CX'er's looking to renew their annual licenses - listen up!

Are you a CX racer that still needs to renew his/her annual license for 2015?  Well, we know it sucks to pay $70 now for a license that expires in January.  To help incentivize CX racers to renew their annual licenses USA Cycling has introduced a special 16 month membership for those that have not yet renewed their annual license. You get the rest of this year and all of next year for $115 - that's two CX seasons!  See details below!  

USA Cycling is excited to announce a special offer for new and returning members just in time for cyclo-cross season. Beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 1, new and returning members can purchase their 2015 license and also all of 2016 for the discounted price of $115. 

  • Annual racer licenses are currently $70 each. For members that want to race cyclo-cross for the next two seasons, this special deal offers a $140 value for $115 - that's a $25 discount. 
  • This pricing is available to anyone without a current USA Cycling membership: first-timers, renewing members, and for former members who want to come back to racing after a break.
  • Because USA Cycling switched to a single domestic racer license for all disciplines in 2014, the special $115 license will not only cover racers for the next two cross seasons, but will also allow them to race or try any road, track, and mountain bike events they have planned for 2016.
  • Racers can receive a further discount by applying a one-day license credit, if they have one, toward the purchase of the annual license, lowering the price to $105 if using a mountain bike one-day, or $100 if using a road/track/cx one-day.

To take advantage of this special offer, just click here and select the Limited Time Offer under Racer Licenses.

This offer is only available for adult domestic racer licenses and is not valid for international, junior, or collegiate licenses.For cyclo-cross racers who only want to purchase a racer license for the remainder of 2015, the regular $70 annual license will still be available.

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
