Welcome to the 2010 Collegiate Mountain Bike season everyone!
I hope everyone is getting all settled back at school and, more importantly, riding bikes all the time. I wanted to tell/remind everyone that all collegiate rule change proposals are due next Wednesday the 15th. Please send them to your conference director (http://usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=260) in the following format:
NAME OF RULE CHANGE PROPOSAL
A) Affected current rule or rules
B) The current language of the rule
C) The proposed language of the new/revised rule
D) Explanation and justification of this rule change
You can find the rulebook here: http://www.usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=4220 and the collegiate section in particular here: http://www.usacycling.org/forms/USAC_rulebook-7.pdf
The board will then publish all the proposals by the 30th, and accept feedback thereafter until Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championships. Please contact me with any questions you have about the process, and look for a little ditty on how the process works and why, etc, in September’s newsletter, which is due out next week.
From: Jeffery Hansen – National Collegiate Director
