I missed the Team Sign-Up Night, can I still join?
We evaluate all newcomers on a case-by-case basis. For our athlete's safety and our coaching ratios, we need to ensure that any late-joiners will have the cardiovascular fitness and technical ability to safely fit within one of our riding groups as well as compete safely at races.
Once racing starts at the end of August we freeze the roster to any new athletes unless they have previous racing experience.
