2014 USAC-MTB Race Director Incentive Program
  • Payments are issued to the sponsoring club or individual licensed race director
  • The sponsoring club must submit a W-9 to USA Cycling
  • Rider surcharges must be collected from each rider:  $3.60 per rider per day
  • Category 1 and Pro riders are required to buy a USAC-MTB annual membership.
  • USAC-MTB Race Director’s Incentive Account
    • $5 from every annual USAC-MTB adult full price racing license ($70) sold for riders who live in the Race Director’s state during the 2014 calendar year will go into an incentive account to be divided among each state’s Race Directors at the end of the racing (November 30th cutoff).
    • Distribution will be determined by percent of riders per day hosted by each Race Director for their respective state. If there is more than one USAC Club listed on the Permit, then the incentive earned for the event will be evenly distributed among the non-collegiate USAC Clubs listed on the Permit.
    •  Rider days = the # of riders reported in the competitive post-event for insurance surcharges payment.
Example #1                            Saturday XC = 200 riders
                                                Sunday DH = 50 riders
250 riders x $3.60 = $900 rider surcharge payment due.  Race Director earned 250 rider days toward end year payout.
Example #2                            Saturday XC = 200 riders
                                                Saturday DH = 50 riders
                                                10 riders competed in both events
240 riders x $3.60 - $864 rider surcharge payment due. Race Director earned 240 rider days toward end year payout.
