CRCA Women's Development Series
CRCA is a leading advocate for women's racing. As part of that effort the Club has supported a Women's Development Series for many years. This series spans both selected dates featured in the CRCA Club Race Series and several of CRCA's Open Races. Importantly all CRCA Women's Development Series races, including those held as part of the Central Park Club Series, are open to all USAC licensed riders who pre-register via Bikereg.
Inquiries on the Women's Development Series should be directed to the Vice President of Rider Development.

The 2017 season welcomes both Two Seconds Ahead and Specialized as sponsors for this unique opportunity for category 3, 4 & 5 women. The series, now in its fifth year, is open to both CRCA members and non-members. Race participation levels have increased every year and with the support of Two Seconds Ahead and Specialized, this season we have expanded our focus beyond providing race opportunities for women by offering free coaching, on and off-the bike social events, pre- and post-race rides, and mentorship from experienced racers. We’re catering to both new racers, and those with race experience progressing to the next level.
Series Leader Competition
The series leader competition for Cat 4 and Cat 3 Women in the Development Series will commence with Grants Tomb, and continue throughout the entire season. The Cat 4 and Cat 3 racers with the highest number of points throughout the series will wear the respective series leader jersey for each race, with the racer who has earned the highest cumulative number of points at the end of the season being named the overall series winner. Series Leader points are recorded by the Women's Development Team.
