Permitting and Fees
Dear Organizers, Some questions regarding permitting and fees for VCI
cyclocross races have come up recently that I would like to help clarify.
First, since most of you permit several races a year with us, you are used
to the fee structure for permitting. For road events this starts with
determining the category (A through E) of tlle race based on total prize
list, and then there is either a flat fee or the 7% of the prize list
depending on that category. However, apart from any prize list
considerations, all DCI calendar events are category A by definition.
Therefore, regardless of the prize list, your raCeSwill be permitted as A
races, and the permit fee is 7% of the total prize list for all of the races
that are permitted through us. Second, the VCI requires that the riders
con1ribute 2% of their prizes to the fight against doping. This amount is
taken from the prize list and sent to the DCI directly by the organizer.
This leads to the question about what the actual prize list is and how it
should be reported. To remain consistent with the other disciplines and with
what most elite level riders are used to, you should report the total prize
list and breakdowns before the 2% rider con1ribution is taken out. The total
before the 2% is the actual prize list that is used to determine 1) whether
the prize list meets the minimum required by the VCI and 2) the total prize
list for the purpose of establishing the permit fee. If you would like to
also publish a list of the prizes that have been adjusted to reflect the
subtraction of the 2%, you are certainly welcome to do that as well, but it
would be simpler to just add a footnote to the prize list that explains that
each payout will have 2% subtracted as the riders contribution against
doping (RCAD). I hope that clarifies the permitting and fees issues for you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at
