Registration is now open for the 2015 Cyclocross Program

Cyclocross is coming!

Complete Program Info here.

Register here.

The deadline for registration is August 1st.

Please sign up as soon as possible so we know how many riders to expect. As you can imagine, planning for the season goes a lot smoother if kids sign up early. How many coaches will we need? How many practice locations do we need to reserve? These all depend on how many riders we have.

Here’s what you can expect during the registration process…

We use a service called Team Snap (a Boulder-based company) for registration and communications. You’ll need to create an account and follow a few steps. If you already have a Team Snap account, you can use that.

Please enter contact information for all parents, so we can stay in touch with everyone during the season. Each parent can opt “in” or “out” of team communications and manage their account during the season. The initial registration form asks only for information for 2 parents. After you create your registration, you can go back and “edit” your account and add as many additional contacts as you need.

Fees can be paid with a credit card online via paypal, or you can mail a check after you complete the Team Snap process. Paying with a check is very much our preference since it saves 3% in fees.

Please download, print, and mail a hard copy of the liability waiver to our office. (You’ll be prompted during the Team Snap process.) If you’ve already sent us a 2015 waiver from Road or MTB, you DON’T need to send a fresh copy. If you are registering more than one rider, please note that the waiver has space for up to 4 family members. You only need to send in one piece of paper.

Which Level? There are 2 primary levels in the Cyclocross Program. “Devo” is for all riders roughly the 8th or 9th grade or below, and “Stagiaire & Elite” is for more experienced riders who have been upgraded to this level by the coaches. Fees and registration are based on just these 2 levels. Coaches further subdivide the Devo riders into the appropriate level – Tier 1, 2, or 3 – during the first week of practice. Contact us with questions!

The full season runs from late August into early January, but our Devo program is divided into a 1st half and 2nd half which riders can choose from. Stagiaire & Elite riders participate in the full season.

For Devo riders, you’ll need to complete one registration for the 1st half of the season, and then start over to register for the 2nd half if you choose to ride a full season. We know that’s a bit of a hassle, but it is a necessary step for our internal operations.

If you know your child is going to ride and race in the 2nd half, please register them now. In the past, many families did not register for the 2nd half until the 1st half was complete, and we were left shorthanded for indoor practice locations and coaches.

Stagiaire and Elite Team riders must register for the full season, there is no 1st or 2nd half option. Elite Team riders should register for the full “Stagiaire” season, and later we’ll provide info about additional costs for race support and travel. Participation in the Stagiaire and Elite levels must be discussed with the head coach before the season.

Families with multiple riders receive a discount: first rider in most expensive program pays full fee, second rider is 1/3 off and third rider is 2/3 off their respective programs. You will find the fee options listed in the registration process.

BJC offers financial support for families who qualify for assistance. Please see the application on the BJC website: http://boulderjuniorcycling.org/sign-up/

Remember, the deadline for registration is August 1st. After that date, riders may only be accepted into the program based upon space availability.

NEW! Giant Bicycles has partnered with Boulder Cycle Sport to provide a Grassroots Sponsorship to Boulder Junior Cycling. This sponsorship allows BJC riders to save hundreds or even thousands off retail price on a new bike depending on the model.

These bikes must be pre-ordered from BCS and the order deadline is July 16 FIRM. For details about this program, please contact Coach Pete.

Cyclocross Clothing Orders Due by June 24, 2015

Update: This order is closed. Next order will be placed in early September.

Although registration for the cyclocross program is NOT YET OPEN, clothing should be ordered SOON because it takes about 8 weeks to be produced. The online clothing store will close at the end of the day on June 24. We expect delivery of clothing items ordered in June in late August.

If you don’t know your size, ask your fellow riders what size they use, or contact Cuore (303-557-7120) to arrange a fitting. Sizes are in a European system, and translate roughly to the rider’s height in cm.

Clothing must be ordered and paid for on an individual basis directly from the Coure online store. Clothing is not included in our Cyclocross Program fees and there is no inventory of clothing held by BJC.

The clothing for cyclocross is the same as this year’s Road and MTB kits and many riders already have the new stuff. However, CX only and new riders will want to get some gear and others may want to get some new cold weather items such as longsleeve skinsuits and jackets.

While the design of the kit has changed, all old BJC kits are still perfectly OK to use for racing and training. All team clothing is optional. Clothing for the Elite Team will be ordered separately.

Another order will be placed in early September if there is enough interest, but those items will take about 2 months to be produced and won’t be ready till November. SO NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER.

Here are the clothing ordering steps:

1) Create an account here:

https://www.cuore.ch/shop/us/create_account.php

Enter the team code BJC2015

3) Then you must logout and log back in. Select “Login to the TEAM SHOP” for the BJC store to appear.

If you already have an account, go to Cuore’s US website and click the log in button in the upper right corner.

4) Order and pay for your clothing
