USAC in for enduro...
Here is the added rule:
"5E4 - Enduro
An extended timed descent or multiple timed descents in
single or multiple stages over one or more days. A technical
manual should be produced that defines how the event will be
scored, either by time or omnium. All stages must be
completed to be eligible for a placing. "
thoughts?? what about classes?? Is a pro in DH and a pro in XC the same?? USAC only has categories for XC, DH and 4x/DS. They have no plans to add enduro??
USAC - added value little or nothing. Let's hope the promoters avoid them.
I've dealt with the ABA/USCF/USAC since the mid-70's. They are a net negative in everything they do.
If you like bureaucracy, stupid rules, and "officials", you should love them.
The UCI is even worse. A bunch of euro-idiots.
USAC had nothing to do with the growth of enduro and now wants to profit off of it.
Agree with Noah. Keep Enduro grass roots non-profit clubs or private race promotors. Keep the big cycling organizations out of it.
USAC is nothing but trouble. Google up some of the articles about USAC's efforts to undermine OBRA here in Oregon. The enduro folks have it right running their own show.
Another "NO" vote for USAC involving themselves with Enduro Racing.
