2024 Meili Cycling Presents the Texas Mountain Bike Team Challenge
Get your rosters ready for the 2024 Texas Mountain Bike Team Challenge and join the race to determine the top teams in Texas. The Team Challenge has seen the traveling trophy move from city to city as shops, friends and sponsors field their very best to race for top team honors. This year’s competition promises to be more exciting than ever.
The Texas Team Challenge has awarded IMBA over $10,000 to date, making this a great way to add another dimension to the racing, plus donate to such a worthwhile organization.
Get your roster together and sign up for what promises to be another action packed season of team racing. All mountain bike teams are invited to participate in the Texas Team Challenge, to be held in conjunction with the 2024 Texas XC Mountain Bike State Championship Series.
The team manager must fill out a roster for each rider on the team. Please use this link to fill out your rosters REGISTER HERE Please fill out the form only once per team to be registered for the team competition. You must enter the first and last name of each racer, their date of birth and their TMBRA series plate number (all data must match the racer’s TMBRA profile). Once the season starts there are no substitutions across team rosters. Additions are allowed but the new team addition racer’s prior points will not be counted prior to their team addition date. The registration fee is $5 per team member payable to TMBRA by Feb. 26th. Cash or Check only sent to the following address: TMBRA 141 West Water St. A-200 Kerrville, TX 78028. You are allowed to register up to 15 racers on your team.
When registering at each race, please have team members include the EXACT “Team Name” that your team is using. A racer’s points may only be used by one registered team during a season. If a racer changes teams at any time during the series, his points will not count for the old team or the new team. Any changes MUST BE RECEIVED by email no later than the Wednesday before the next race event and the $5 per rider fee must be paid for points to be counted……NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!
We recommend that you have at least five riders on your team, there is a 15 rider limit.
PLEASE NOTE: Your team and it’s members are solely responsible for 100% correct team roster forms and proper race event registration!!!!! The name on the roster must EXACTLY match the names entered at registration and on your TMBRA profile . The most common reason for missed points is not using the exact same name or not using the same birth dates.
By submitting a roster team managers agree to the following “code of ethics“
1. Team managers will not “stack” their roster with riders who are not actually a part of the team. Adding racers who ride for another team that is not involved with the Texas Team Challenge is not allowed.
2. The Team Challenge team name MUST appear on the race results.
3. Team managers agree to encourage racers to move from Cat 3 to Cat 2 and Cat 2 to Cat 1 when they meet the mandatory upgrade requirements or when the rider’s ability obviously warrants the upgrade.
4. Team managers will not encourage “sandbagging” by asking a racer to stay down for points.
The top FIVE highest placing finishers for each team will determine the team’s total score for each race event. The best SIX out of EIGHT race events will count.
If you have less than five eligible racers to score, the empty spots will receive a score of “zero”. If you finish, but not within the top thirty racers in your class you will also receive a “zero”.
