JUNIOR ENTRY FEES SUBSIDIZED BY KEEN WEALTH MANAGEMENT GROUP OF WELLS FARGO ADVISORS AND KCA

August 11, 2013

The KCA is pleased to announce the 2013 $1,000 donation from the Keen Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors has been matched with $1,000 from the KCA to promote junior racing.  For 2013 Cyclocross and 2014 Road Races, the KCA will subsidize race promoters who are members in good standing of the KCA, per the KCA Bylaws, $5.00 per junior entry in a junior (not category) race.  The payment will be made by the KCA within thirty days of the KCA Treasurer’s receipt of the number of junior entries in the race via either the Chief Referee Report or official results.  The KCA Board recognizes that, per USA Cycling, race entry fees are set in a free market at the discretion of the organizer.  However, it is the KCA Board’s hope that promoting clubs and race directors, in order to promote junior racing, will charge junior entry fees of $5.00 which will be paid by the racer.  The $5.00 paid by the KCA will result in an actual entry fee of $10.00. Further, per the KCA surcharge policy, the $1.00 surcharge is not assessed on entries with a fee of $10.00 or less.   Official race fliers will include a statement that junior entry fees are sponsored by the Keen Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors and the KCA.

What are the KCA expected benefits of the Keen Wealth Cup to area USAC bicycle racing?

Expected benefits of the Keen Wealth Cup competition for the Overall Team Championship are:

  • Encourage more team level participation in KBAR designated races as all member earned points count towards the award. This makes all team members’ participation important, even if a racer does not expect to win the individual KBAR award.
  • Encourage teams to recruit new members to team so the team can participate in all the category, masters, and juniors races both for male and female. This to gain potential for more KBAR points towards winning the Keen Wealth Cup.
  • Encourage team tactics in races instead of just riding as individuals. Part of team strategy can be to both win points, but also to keep other teams from getting points.
