Please read: NYSBRA Statement on Prize List Parity
NYSBRA is aware of the circumstances surrounding this past weekend’s Harlem Skyscraper Criterium, where the race director reduced the Women’s P123 prize list at or immediately before the start of their race. Reduction of prize lists in this manner is in violation of USAC policy, and NYSBRA is currently working with USAC and the race promoter to investigate this issue.
NYSBRA believes prize list parity is a vital component to providing quality bicycle racing in New York State. So in addition, NYSBRA is currently reviewing its existing race permitting guidelines, as well as creating Race Director Best Practices, to enable race directors in NY to have the resources needed to commit to providing high quality and equitable race experiences for our members in a sustainable manner.
