I wanted to confirm for you that if you are interested in having a UCI
Junior race for 17-18 year olds, the UCI will allow you to add that class to
your inscription for this season.
Things to note:
-The 17-18 race must be the ONLY race on the course at that time. You may
run other junior classes, but not concurrently.
-You have to pay the UCI prize list for juniors. Approximately $1085 - 15
-We must submit them all as a group, to USA Cycling first, who will then
submit them to the UCI. It can't be done one at a time.
So, my suggestion is that there should be more discussion about which races
this makes sense for. Justin should set a deadline for those events who want
to add a junior race, and then he will be the one who submits those changes
to the UCI, all at once. Anyone not on board by the deadline will not be
included after the fact.
We absolutely want to prevent a points chase scenario for the juniors, so we
have to think long and hard about who can add this class, and for whom it
makes sense to do so with the juniors in mind.
