3. Club Fees

4. Organizer Fees

(a) Standard Competitive Event the permit fee for standard Federation races is determined by adding the $25 per day basic permit fee plus 6 % (8% for USPRO) of the total event prize list. The prize list total is determined by adding the total cash and merchandise retail value of the prizes for the event. This permit should be used for any Category A through C USCF race. Category D and E USCF competitive events are eligible for the reduced rate. Event permits for Category D USCF races are $50.00 per day. Event permits for Category E USCF races are $25 per day.

(b) Non-Competitive Events. These events include training rides, clinics and camps. Training permits are available for a fee of $15 per day for 1 - 3 days or $50 for 4 - 30 days. Days need not be consecutive, but must be determined in advance. All riders must have signed waivers and rosters. Clinic and camp permits are $15.00 per day for 1 - 3 days and $50 for 4 - 30 days.

(d) Fine for inadequate numbers. An organizer who fails to provide racing numbers that meet the requirements of the Racing Rules shall be fined $1 per rider per day of racing. This fine shall be submitted to USA Cycling. (See Rule1K4)

(e) Failure to comply. Post-event reporting and fees are due to the USA Cycling office within 15 days after the event. Failure to comply will result in additional mandatory fees: $50 if within 16-30 days after the event, $100 if within 31-60 days after the event, $150 if within 61-90 days after the event. Non-compliance or lack of full payment may face future cancellation of permits and/or suspension. [Please see the current Permit for complete details]

Certain races may be placed higher than their prize list qualifies for, as shown in the footnotes. Each race in a given event is placed in the highest category for which it is qualified according to the table following.
