2023 Rider Fees
The rider fee for 2023 remains at $1.50 per rider per day. All race directors of USA Cycling Sanctioned competitive events taking place in MABRA's territory must collect this fee at the time riders pre-register for an event and must then pay the fees collected to MABRA post-event. Failure to pay the fee is a violation of the USA Cycling contract event directors sign and could result in MABRA asking USA Cycling to refuse to sanction your event in future years.
The fee is collected per rider per day for pre-registered riders only. Training races are exempt from collecting the fee as are collegiate portions of USAC sanctioned events. Day-of entries that are paid onsite are also exempt from the fee.
2023 Incentives for Road Event Race Directors
MABRA is offering the following incentives for Road Event race directors in 2023:
As in 2022, this year for road events that have an equitable race schedule MABRA will reimburse the event the cost of the Chief Ref's fee (not including milage.) We will consider a race event to have an equitable race schedule if it includes at least one men and one women's race field that does not include Pro/Cat 1 racers or it it is a Juniors only event. For training races, the men and women's fields can be combined to qualify.
The 50% reimbursement for Moto insurance fees continues in 2023.
MABRA will continue reimbursing up to $500 per time trial event for those USAC sanctioned time trials that use electronic timing. A maximum of $1500 is available across all TT events for this program.
2023 Incentives for Cyclocross Race Directors
In 2023 MABRA will provide up to 14 rolls of course tape per event day for USA Cycling sanctioned cyclocross events. Event directors can purchase extra tape at MABRA's cost. We normally provide 7 rolls of white tape and 7 rolls of red however can provide all of one color at the request of an event. All tape will be available for pickup at Dave Provine's service course OR by prior arrangement at select race events.
MABRA completed the purchase of the equipment trailers from Potomac Velo Club and Chip Sovak in 2022. As a result of this purchase the trailer rental rate has been lowered from $250 to $150 per event. Each of the equipment trailers will be stocked with at least 900 plastic step-in stakes, a regulations sized set of double barriers, a set of barriers of a lil Belgian's race course, a five place set of podium boxes, four pit flags, four bike racks, four chairs, four tables and four MABRA branded feather flags for marking course crossings.
