    Having our CO cycling community join BRAC would be fantastic. It would allow racers who wish to compete Nationally to be part of the USAC ranking system. With a couple of exceptions, racers currently need to travel out of state to accumulate points which is expensive, time consuming and takes our race dollars elsewhere.

    Colorado racers turned out in force and kicked butt last January at Cyclocross Nationals, hosted at Valmont Bike Park, thanks to the many local races we all enjoy that are sanctioned by BRAC. Had we not been a part of that system few of us would have had the opportunity to race the National Championships hosted in our own backyard.

    Please consider the larger picture and the greater community when formulating your thoughts on this issue. A BRAC license is a nominal fee to pay to allow Colorado MTB racers to compete at a National level.

    What are the the real drawbacks for joining BRAC? MTB racing is expensive (I don't know why, but I'm not a promoter); nobody questions RME pricing model - $80+ for a race without any prize money. I'd pay a bit more for a race if it helps Colorado juniors to be more competitive on a national level.

    excellent idea! Disadvantage 99.9% of the racers so seven people can get call ups at Nationals. #Brilliant

    That would be great. For the racers who are interested racing in MTB National and other out of state events. Currently Colorado racers must travel to out of state races, to earn those call-up points. There are only 2 major USAC MTB events in Colorado, juniors in particularly are in disadvantage.

    How could you miss it? It's their mission! Because they're a 501c with a mission they bring instant value into the hands of everyone in Colorado who owns a bicycle, tricycle, or unicycle. Side bar, but my favorite moment was Steve Johnson's monumental speech on heroes and role models only months before I watched Armstrong on Oprah and Tommy D be, well, Tommy D. Why did we integrate with USAC again would be the better article Kris and Katie.

    There is no mention of how BRAC brings value to the racer...
