    NY Racers which club to join

    To race the crca series in cp i need to be a member of a club. Since i will only be using the club to race it has come down to which kit is the nicest. I was thinking Kissena, what other clubs are there?

    I know this sounds kind of stupid

    unless things have changed dramatically since the 90s, if you want t do the crca series, then you have to join crca.

    you need to be a member of crca to do the crca series in CP. kissena is its own thing.

    within crca, there are many subteams like metro, empire, nyvelocity, etc.

    also, there is an independent team... Brooklyn Velo Force. they are one of the few local independent racing teams (but they don't do the crca series obviously).

    ok, as someone who was on the first crca subteam let me explain it to you: kissena has nothing to do with crca. it's a different club altogether.

    maybe things have changed, but in the past you had to be asked, or ask, to be in a subteam.

    So, in short, the answer you are looking for is:

    you join CRCA.

    You race in their jersey.

    Unless one of the subteams invites you to join.

    Then you race in the subteam's jersey.

    Hope you're an early riser!

    If you want to do the CRCA races you have to join CRCA. Joining Kissena will NOT allow you to race in a CRCA race.

    BVF is proud to be one of the few independent teams in the NYC area. We do all of the local races and out of town/state/country as well (one of our strongest new racers who won the cat 5 series at FBF just finished PBP). You can also be a member of the CRCA and BVF, but you have to join both teams and be invited in both instances. The area's seen an explosion of racers in the last few years. If you're just getting started I'd suggest either joining CRCA or doing the unrestricted races at Prospect Park. Place well in the 5's and get some attention from the teams. At this point in the year you're going to have to move quickly, there's only a few more weekends of racing left.
