Taking the award in the cyclo-cross category was Snakebite Racing out of Lakewood, Ohio. The club scored big points in the recruitment, event promotion, member upgrade, and club activity categories. Races organized by Snakebite included Brooklyn Cyclo-cross and Cascade Park Cyclo-cross. The club was also able to put a big focus on recruitment by providing mentors to new and young cyclo-cross racers. Their efforts resulted in the roster growing from 16 to 21 in 2012.

This past Saturday was the annual USA Cycling Regional Technical Committee meeting in Chicago. During the meetings Dave Riemenschneider was recognized as Ohio’s Official of the Year for 2012. Dave showed great growth as an official working toward improving his skills both at events and through USA Cycling’s upgrade process. He has nearly completed his upgrade work and should be able to begin the 2013 season as a Level B official. Dave also stepped forward and led the officiating crews for many of NEOCX series events, an area where his efforts and leadership were both needed and appreciated.
Ohio Cycling recently hosted a clinic for officials seeking “A” level certification. The clinic was taught by Phil Miller, who many of you will remember from a few of our Ohio UCI cyclocross events and included 9 attendees from various parts of the country.
Of note to Ohio is the certification of Mitch Beckner as an “A” level official. Be sure to congratulate Mitch on his achievement as this is not an easy certification to achieve.
