We will be having on July 14 in Lawrence a Class C USAC Referee training session. If you are interested in getting your license please contact Amy Fear at email@example.com.
Also, we are considering having a Moto USAC training session in the near future. Please contact Amy as well so we can gauge if there is enough interest to set this up.
With George Heagerty’s retirement and a reorg of USA Cycling we have been assigned to Greg Butler who will be our Business Development Manager and key contact with USAC.
He will be in town during the Tour of Lawrence and we will have an informal meeting on Sunday June 28 in Lawrence with Greg.
Like all KCA meetings this is open to the public. If you have any questions, issues, or concerns with USAC this would be a great opportunity to discuss them and to hear from Greg what USAC has for future plans.
I will work out later details of a time and location. If you plan to attend please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can make sure we have sufficient space.
At the KCA meeting last weekend the Board discussed and approved an increase of the KCA fee to $2.00 per racer for races that have yet to be permitted in 2015. We also approved to increase the fee for non Kansas races that KCA supports from $50 to $100 per event.
Our cash balance recently has been decreasing quicker then what we would like. Along with the increased fee we have also decided to take the following steps on the expense side.
- Reduce the overall costs for KBAR recognition by awarding jerseys to 1st time winners only in a category. We will have a jersey available for the winner photo at the banquet.
- In 2016 the KCA stipend for State Championship races will be reduced from $400 to $200.
- I will work towards making the annual banquet cheaper.
This will allow us to continue to incentive our Officials for the work they do. Maintain the equipment/computers that the KCA provides for races and continue to match the generous donation that Bill Keen of Keen Wealth Management provided to the KCA to incentivize Junior racers.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Here is an updated race calendar. Please note the KBAR Waterway Crits have been rescheduled for 6/20-21. Thanks,

Please designate your correct club and team, if applicable, on your USAC account page when ordering your 2015 annual racing license. The KCA database obtains its racer data directly from USAC records. Therefore, if your USAC data is incorrect, your KCA data for registration, results and series scoring will also be incorrect. Please remember that you need to designate to USAC the correct club and team for each discipline you race: road, cx, mountain, etc. in order for this information to be accurate in the KCA results and series points.

Cooler temperatures for the CX season finally arrived in KC. Many of the categories for KBCXR are very close in points. The races next weekends final KBCX race will be one great race to race and or watch as the top men and women race for titles.
This weekend also kicked off the Series60 CX. Look for more great CX racing the rest of the season as we move closer to Texas Nationals.
Next the ever so popular HPT Saturday night and then the final KBCX on Sunday, Veteran’s CX. Just a reminder pre registration saves you some $$.
