Cyclocross Season Schedule Release

A lot of you have been asking and waiting for this to come out and
finally it has, the ECCC 2013 Cyclocross Calendar has been posted to
the Calendar Page [1]. This year it will be a smaller schedule using
events that have been successful in the past with a few new ones
thrown in for charm.

Note that these events are not stand only collegiate events and you
will be racing within a standard USAC race, which means that you must
have a full USAC license in order to race, not just the collegiate
license. In order to get scored in the ECCC standings you must wear
your collegiate kit (or a blank kit if you don’t have a collegiate
kit) during the race and be listed in the results as your collegiate
team.

In order to qualify for Nationals, you must have done at least one
ECCC race, but not necessarily an A race. In order to race at
Nationals, though, you must have an A license. An A racer is
considered a USAC category 1/2/3 rider; B racer 3/4; and C racer 4/5.
Depending on the event and the categories they are running, what the
ECCC defines as A/B/C for points may vary a little.

For the A racers out there, some of the events are UCI races that will
require you to have an UCI License in order to race in highest
category. To balance this out for the people that don’t want to pay
the extra money for the international license, there are other events
on our calendar that are non-UCI events where you can get those
valuable points.

The season starts soon so you better have been using the past month
back at school gluing up tires, running up steps, and getting ready
for the mud (or racing Mountain Bike Season).
