April 6 Updated

Racing will resume in many different ways this season. However, I don’t want anyone to be surprised or defeated if an event is postponed or cancelled so here are my suggestions:
– We train as if the event will happen but make your goals separate from race results.
– Sign up to race if their cancellation policy & fees are within your range of budget & accepted risk, and you think you can get there. Talk to the coaches about team transportation before you sign up.
– See below for races that we can consider for Team Travel but it is all uncertain.
– If you find info about any event that’s worth sharing, please share on the TeamSnap chat.
– Team day-trips look good, camping looks possible — hotels and overnight logistics might be tricky as a team, but you can go as a family or with friends, just keep me posted on your plans.
USA Cycling will honor points from OBRA races now, but only if you have an annual license for both organizations. Do that now, even if you don’t race it will support races and athletes.
