    Insurance and cherries

    red trolly race is this weekend...might be my first...but am holding back due to insurance issues. i have no med insurance right now and therefore when i do ride it is pretty conservative, nothing crazy. i figured since USCF races offer insurance i should be good to go...but how good is there coverage? $5000 deductible? http://www.usacycling.org/forms/EventInsurance.pdf

    also how much will i need to pay to race? next to the men 5 category it reads fees- $25...then it reads one day licence is $10 and day of race registration is and extra $5...so $40? http://www.socalcycling.com/RaceAnn/...rolley2009.pdf

    That is not medical insurance. Go get some real high deductible medical insurance.

    You go and mess yourself up, you have a $5k deductible and 25k of coverage. However, if you ride conservatively, you will be OTB in 1 mile, and then if you crash, it is pretty much guaranteed to be your stupidity that would cause it.

    fees- 25 race entry, if you have no annual license ($60/yr), then you need the one day for $10. Day of registration being $5 you also must remember unattached rider fee (in case they enforce it and you are not on a USAC team) for another $5. So, $25 + $10 + $5 + $5 = $45 total.

    Good luck

    Don't know about this year and San Diego and all, but last year, it seemed like Cat 5 races were always sold out, so there was no "Day-of" registrations available.

    i don't know why i thought the race was this weekend..thanks umd...it does not look like i will be doing it either way...looks like i should not count on their coverage...plus $45 for 30 min of racing! i got the impression it was cheaper because it cost about $10 to race at the velodrome here.

    anyway...thanks for your responses...i am very eager to race but am willing to wait until everything works out better.

    road races are a better value and if to have a license and reg early you don't pay all those costs

    Check into accident insurance but be sure to check exclusions (bike racing not motor racing) or get a statement from company not the agent it is covered. You can get a policy with disability payments in most states.
