Lucarelli & Castaldi CRCA Club Series Race #4 Instructions

The fourth race in the Lucarelli & Castaldi Club Series is this weekend. Instructions follow below starting with a few key items:

CRCA kit: all members are required to wear CRCA kit or CRCA sub-team kit with the prerequisite logos. With temperatures improving we will begin to enforce these requirements at the Club Series in the coming weeks. For independent members - if you have ordered the Club kit but it hasn't arrived yet please make sure you have the e-mail confirmation for your order available. If you haven't ordered CRCA kit yet the store should re-open shortly.

Members: after the first Club Series race three riders were reported by NYC Parks for riding backward on the Central Park loop and/or riding on walking paths and after the third Club Series race three marshals were reported riding backward on the Central Park loop. This conduct threatens the existence of our races and will be subject to an immediate DQ and possible suspension. PLEASE respect all other Park users before, during and after this weekend's race.

Marshals: NYC Parks strictly enforces our marshal requirements. Races cannot start until 15 minutes AFTER all marshals are at their assigned posts. If marshals arrive late (or do not show) the race will be delayed and/or cancelled. Please refer to the Marshaling Instructions and Marshaling Policy for addition information.


To confirm your eligibility to race please check the CRCA Roster. The roster is now finalized but email with any questions and Randy may be able to assist. 


After the March 24 Club race number pick-up is exclusively at Tailwind Endurance - you will not be able to pick-up your race number at race registration. Please make sure to pickup your race number from Tailwind Endurance in advance of race day. 


The CRCA Club Series now features professional results. Results will be posted at the Rambles, posted on, and uploaded to USAC. The CRCA Club Series may now be utilized for USAC upgrade points. 

Per USAC Rule 1M7 racers should take advantage of the 15-minute protest period once results are posted at the Rambles Parking lot to address any concerns directly with our officials and results service before leaving Central Park. This is by far the easiest and most direct way to insure your results are accurate. 

Any further questions or concerns regarding results should be addressed via this Google Form
