We have a change up in our categories this year. Unfortunately due to very low participation. CYCL is dropping support for the 15-16 and 16-17 age categories. Moving forward we will be a 14 and under race series. We had really hoped to provide a venue for all school aged kids but the interest just does not seem to be there for those age groups.
The first question you might ask is would we consider adding them back. Yes, anything is possible, provided we get enough interested racers who will commit.
Now say you are in those age groups or are getting close to “aging out” of CYCL. There most definitely are racing opportunities all around you. Our partner Charlotte Sports Cycling runs many racing events in many disciplines that have juniors categories. Beyond that there are quite a few other organizations who also conduct races in our region.
