NOTE: There are many more locally sanctioned races available to me than USA Cycling (USAC) sanctioned races. Eleven (11) of my 14 races this season will be sanctioned by American Bike Racing (ABR), a grassroots organization aimed at promoting races and racers at the local level, rather than at the national level by USAC. Only one of the races will be sanctioned by USAC. The remaining two races will be independently sanctioned as part of the state-level National Senior Games qualifying events. The only drawback is that none of my ABR race results will apply to my USAC national rankings.
