Golden, Colorado. The Club Council, Board of Directors, and staff of the American Cycling Association (ACA) is proud to announce that the ACA will serve as the Local Association in 2012 for USACycling (USAC) for the state of Colorado and eastern Wyoming. This decision was reached at a special Club Council Meeting on November 18, 2011, and ends thirteen years of division for amateur road, track and cyclocross racing in Colorado.
“We are incredibly pleased to be a part of USAC for the first time in over a decade,” said Clint Bickmore, Vice President of the ACA Board of Directors. “We see great opportunity for growth as the Local Association of USAC. With a coordinated race calendar, one set of rider rankings, the increased potential to bring national-level events to Colorado, the integration with collegiate racing, the ability to create exciting ancillary events with the 2012 USA Pro Cycling Challenge, and the shared power of two great organizations, this decision will immediately improve the competitive cycling community in Colorado.”
