USA Cycling & Gone Riding sanction again!

January 27, 2016 -- Gone Riding race promotions has announced that its four cross-country mountain bike series, which consist of 32 events across the southeast, will again sanction with USA Cycling in 2016.

The South Eastern Regional Mountain Bike Championship Series, Georgia State Mountain Bike Championship Series, Florida State Mountain Bike Championship Series, and South Florida Coconut Cup Mountain Bike Series offer ample off-road racing opportunities to cycling enthusiasts across the southeast. Now, as USA Cycling-sanctioned events, these 32 races will also offer riders the added benefits of being included in the nation’s only bike racing results and rankings program, as well as accident medical insurance for incidents that may occur during an athlete’s involvement in the sanctioned event.

“Gone Riding has a long history with USA Cycling that goes back to the early 1990’s,” said Gone Riding President and Race Director David Berger. “Due to positive changes at USA Cycling, we’re happy to announce that for no additional cost, we’ll once again provide our racers with the benefits of USA Cycling.”

Some of USA Cycling’s goals in 2016 are to lower the barriers of entry to the sport of cycling, and to increase its support of amateur and grassroots racing. For mountain bike races, this means a $5 rebate on one-day licenses to the race director, the elimination of permitting fees, and the elimination of one-day licenses for practice days.
