I've been riding with a local group for a little over a year. We're getting a kit made up with our local sponsors, our logo and so on, and I'd like to be able to wear it sometimes when I'm racing (cat 5).
The group is not registered with USAC and is not a race club or team. I will however be competing unofficially with a fellow member of the group in races in the area. Will there be any issue with one or both wearing the kit to race in?
I could see it going either way because we:
- Would not be representing an organization (club or team) registered with USAC
- Said organization does not appear on our licenses
- We could appear to be representing ourselves as a registered club/team if we wear the same kit
What are y'all's thought's on this? I have read through the rule book for this but am unclear on the interpretation for this scenario.
