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


shoot me an email


why start a new team when you can join a National team and lead your Syndicate?

1. Crazy people with bikes.

2. Beer.

Hey, you stole my team's motto! ;-)

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.

Agreed forming a team is no easy task. But it is rewarding to be able to steer a group of people in the direction you want. Get ahold of me and I can give you some pointers having formed a road focused team that also now invests substantially in cross.


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

Happy to help. 

Jared -

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.
