Does anyone know what it takes to form a cyclocross team? I'm a beginner myself but was curious. Here in NYC I don't know of any local teams or I would be interested in that route... We have plenty of road teams here that dabble in cyclocross, but not where cyclocross is main. Thanks in advance!
we are looking for someone to lead our NYC syndicate for www.crossniacs.com
shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
why start a new team when you can join a National team and lead your Syndicate?
1. Crazy people with bikes.
What's the purpose of the team?
Social: Have people to race/train with
Race: Employ team tactics during your race.
If it's social, then just start a regular ride and enjoy. If it's race-focused, you'll need a couple of rides anyway for people to congregate around. From there, forming a club that has a bank account and is registered with USAC takes time. You need a few dedicated people either way.
Do you mind if I touch base with you sometime later about the team concept as well? I'm a newbie to racing anything and the shop I race for ust started a team and it's begoming appearant we need to oversee some aspects. I'd like to help but I have no idea of what or how to address.
Yeah email me at email@example.com
Happy to help.
If the OP hasn't taken you up on this yet, I'll be in touch. I'm also NYC area based and focused on cross.
hey jared how does one join?
