Accepting Applications for the 2014 Race Season
Winter has a solid hold on New England now but we are already planning for our 2014 race season. Our team kit order will be placed in February so we are looking for new racers now to join the team for 2014. We have a great group returning and we would love to bolster our numbers and make NEMBA a mainstay of the New England Racing scene.
We accept racers of all ages and abilities and the primary focus of our team is not about results, its about participation and a constant presence. Our goal is to promote trail advocacy and the NEMBA mission within the race community and to try to have as much fun as we can while doing it.
The only requirements for team membership are current member status in NEMBA (obviously) and the purchase of at least the NEMBA Racing jersey (full kits and accessories are also available). With our bulk orders jersey cost has been between $40-$50 and that cost can be reimbursed if you participate in 5 races wearing the jersey and participate in at least one trail day. You also get access to some of our sponsorship agreements with several local companies and shops and support/cheering/bottle handups at races from teammates.
If you are interested in joining us for 2014 please fill out this Racer Application Form (http://racing.nemba.org/?page_id=1835) or if you have questions please reach out to me directly with a PM. Also feel free to check out our site http://racing.nemba.org and poke around through our last few years of activity.
2014 Applications will need to be in by end of the day Friday Jan 24th.
