MiSCA is discontinuing its relationship with USA Cycling (USAC) effective December 31, 2015. While the 2016 Race Series isn’t slated to start until late August, we wanted to communicate these changes with everyone as early as possible, so those not needing a USAC annual license won’t purchase them. USA Cycling has been very helpful to MiSCA over the past few years – we thank their staff for supporting us and their organization for the credibility provided during our infancy.

Regarding the 2016 Race Series – MiSCA is here to stay! We are planning 5 races from late August through early October – the dates and venues are listed below. We expect that race registration costs will increase slightly to cover the costs of insurance (previously handled by USAC), but remain confident that the overall costs should be the same or less than 2015. With these changes we are also finding options that may work for our teams, possibly covering organizations and coaches during many non-race day activities. We expect race operations, classes, and rules to remain very similar. There will be changes to the way you register for races and the forms to be completed. Stay tuned for more details.
