2022 RXC Membership Sign Up is Open
Racer X Cycling (RXC) is a bicycle racing team based in Golden, Colorado, that maintains a strong and winning presence in road, mountain bike, cyclocross and gravel races. We foster a positive environment for committed racers who want to further improve their skill and reach their personal racing goals. The Team fields racers in every category from Junior to 70+, from Cat 5 beginners to the Pro level. Our Team operates with a strong sense of camaraderie and support for each other. We believe in training, racing and giving back to the Team and our community through mentoring, volunteering, and donations. Most importantly, we love our sport and love to ride and race our bikes!
RXC MEMBERSHIP DETAILS AND REQUIREMENTS
- Every member of RXC is expected to actively support and promote the Team’s mission and goals by participating in training rides, racing, Team events and volunteer opportunities.
- Every RXC member is required to race in a minimum of five (5) sanctioned races (timed events) in 2022 to qualify for end-of-season rewards. If a racer completes less than five races in a calendar year, without good reason, they may be subject to non-renewal of membership for the following year. Race participation is tracked.
- Every RXC member is required to volunteer for at least two (2) Team or general community events in 2022 to maintain Team membership. One of the volunteer efforts must be either for the Mt. Evans Hillclimb or Lookout Mountain Hillclimb races, both RXC sponsored events. Volunteer participation is tracked.
- Members must list “Racer X Cycling/ColoBikeLaw” or “RXC/CBL” on their USAC and/or Colorado Racing membership and on all race entry forms. You will not receive credit towards the end-of-season rewards if your registration is incorrect.
- While a member of RXC, you will not race for another team during the race calendar year unless you have prior permission from the RXC board.
- A 2022 RXC race kit is included in the membership fee and is identified as such (“F2B2 ‘22”). All RXC Team members must wear this current race kit in races during the 2022 race season.
- Sponsorship deals are STRICTLY for Racer X Cycling members only and must not be communicated or extended to individuals outside the Team, posted online, or shopped at other bike shops or stores. Violation, at the Board’s discretion, may result in dismissal from the RXC Team.

- RXC Team members are expected to strictly adhere to established and expected rules of conduct while riding a bike on roads or trails. See http://www.colobikelaw.com/tips.html for more details. Violations of these guidelines may result in cancellation of current Team membership or be subject to the member’s non-renewal for the following year, as decided by the RXC Board.
- Team training rides are formal RXC rides for RXC Team members only. Non–Team members can be invited only if they sign an RXC Team Release/Accident Waiver prior to the ride starting and agree to adhere to Team ride safety and code of conduct rules. Validated complaints by Team members related to a non-Team rider will result in an initial warning to the offending rider. Should the negative behavior continue, the offending rider will no longer be allowed to participate in any subsequent Team rides and events.

When the Cuore clothing store opens (watch for an announcement!) all members must purchase, at a minimum, a cycling top, a cycling bottom (or combo), and a pair of socks.
