Nothing comes up on Google just USACycling. WTF?
I don't pay it! Oregon is mostly a NORBA-free zone. The Oregon Bicycle Racing Association ( http://www.OBRA.org ) provides affordable insurance and support for racing here. Your $20 membership (free to juniors) gets you permanent road (cloth) and mtb (plate) numbers, results tracking, good web site, etc.rapwithtom said:shhhhh!!
Don't give them any ideas. Your $60 annual fee already goes to supporting a staff that does nothing toward furthering your racing fun...if they catch wind of your idea they'll do it and increase annual NORBA dues by $25 per year.
Seriously, does anybody think they get equivalent value for the $60 fee? Or do you just pay it because you have to?
Do more research. NORBA does not "plan races". They hire out the promotion of the national events and little to nothing to do with the others. Most races in this country are run by local promoters.The Lone Wolf said:Yeah I think NORBA should do more. They are just a bunch of pencil pushers that plan the races and make money.
Pencils ha, they got laptops.The Lone Wolf said:Yeah I think NORBA should do more. They are just a bunch of pencil pushers that plan the races and make money.
There are thousands of "NORBA" races, check your local race organizers, sanctioning bodies, state "clubs", and so on. NORBA collects points and race information FROM the local/regional level races, not actually organize and promote them all!mrgorth said:That's cool but the only schedule is for NORBA nationals. Why don't they have a schedule for all NORBA sanctioned races?
