Race promoters: Register your race

In order to officially list your race into the Wisconsin Cyclocross Series, you need to get a permit, set up registration, and add your information to our series website. This means submitting your race information to 3 different places:

  1. Get a permit through USA Cycling (at least 2 months before your event)
  2. Set up registration via BikeReg so participants can register
  3. Add your race to Wisconsin Cyclocross Series website

Unfortunately there is a little bit of a chicken-and-egg situation where you need a USA Cycling permit number for BikeReg and a BikeReg URL for USA Cycling.

Thus, the best approach is to:

  1. Set up your event on BikeReg to reserve your URL (ignore the sanctioning body permit number for now)
  2. Once your event is saved at your URL is reserved, apply for your USA Cycling permit. It may take up to 72 hours to get your permit number.
  3. Once you receive your permit, you can add it to your BikeReg event.

For early season races, this process should be started ASAP.
