What will Bicycle Heaven give you if you’re on the team? You already know we’re not going to give you anything. We are, however, going to recognize you when you earn something. This is a team sport, though. Just as a slam dunk in basketball or a touchdown catch in football isn’t possible without the assist from the guard or pass from the quarterback, sometimes the podium finish in cycling isn’t possible without the block or lead-out from your teammate. Do you want your teammate to be there when you need them? Teams win bike races more often than individuals do.
So, we want to encourage you to race as a team. Some teams pay individual riders for podium finishes. Giving money to a podium finisher can actually go against that whole “race for your team” ideal, right? If the guy who gets paid is the guy on the podium, teammates might just fight against each other for their own slice of pie. That’s not how we operate.
This year we’re offering the “Team wins, you win” incentive program. In a nutshell, here’s how it works:
If anybody in your race on Bicycle Heaven hits the podium in select races, every starter on the team will win back all or a portion of his entry fee. If the podium finisher wins, it’s 100% of the fee to all teammates. If the podium finisher is second, it’s 75%. If the podium finisher is third, it’s 50%. This will apply to all category races, including Cat 5. You heard that right. Including Cat 5. Who else is offering to pay out to a Cat 5 who might just get dropped and lapped? Nobody- but we’re all in this together, so we’ll get paid together.
There are some restrictions that apply:
Pretty solid, eh? But wait, folks, there’s more! In addition to possibly racing for free, full Team Members are offered the following:
If you add that up, taking advantage of those benefits will far exceed the cost of team membership. How are we pulling this off? We’re pulling it off because PhotoFax, Guaranteed Rate Home Loans, Dr. Donnie Fee, and ROK Coaching believe in us and have been generous in their support.
