Trickle Down of UCI Rules for CX

Attention all Carolina's CX racers......per the UCI, feeding in CX races is no longer allowed anywhere on course, regardless of temperature. The CCA will be strictly enforcing this rule throughout the season so that you are adequately prepped for the UCI NC Grand Prix and CX Nats. Exceptions are only authorized under EXTREME conditions by the Chief Refferee.

Point of clarification, local non-UCI events are governed by the USAC rulebook. Rule 4A15 in the USAC rulebook, states that 'Feeding is generally not permitted unless specifically authorized by the Chief Referee....' Therefore, feeding in non-UCI races is at the sole discretion of the Chief Referee. So technically, a Chief Referee could allow feeding given the parameters outlined in the USAC rulebook. We allowed feeding in a CX race in Anderson, SC on Monday because it was 88 degrees and a major safety issue. HOWEVER, the point of my initial post was to inform local CX racers that the CR's, for all sanctioned local CX races this season, will exercise their discretion to disallow feeding....unless there are EXTREME circumstances to warrant feeding. This decision is based entirely on preparing riders for upcoming UCI and National CX Championships.

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.
