2016 Race Team Application

Do you race?  Well, race with the Cycle to Fitness RACING GREYHOUNDS!  For the 2016 season, apply to the RACING GREYHOUNDS, and join one of the BEST race teams in Michigan! We are looking for people who are going to commit to at least 5 races (Mountain, Road, CX, or Tri) in the 2016 season, and any class is acceptable. We are interested in all skill levels of riders, so don't be shy if you don't have much experience. The RACING GREYHOUNDs are classified as a developmental team according USA Cycling. Our race team candidate requirements are:

- Must commit to at least 5 races in the 2016 season
- Be active in the community, and commit to at least 2 service events (Trail Days, Susan G. Komen Ride for the Cure, etc.)
- Must have a good attitude! 
- Annual team dues are $200 to cover the costs of your team apparel (jersey, t-shirt, socks, and water bottles).

Supported events aren't free, so we also require participation in our annual team fundraiser event at Woodland Lanes (your team dues also include 3 tickets to this event which you may use for yourself or sell them).

Come join the premier cycling team in Michigan backed by sponsors such as Cycle to Fitness, Quiring Cycles, Woodland Lanes, and a few more others still in the works. If you meet our requirements, you are exactly what we are looking for!
You can submit your race resume to daniel@cycletofitness.com, and we will review it. The application deadline is December 3rd, 2015. We also recommend that you fill out the form below to apply to our team.

Now, you are probably wondering. . .What do I get if I get on the team?
#1-AWESOME (Much better than you are thinking right now) discounts on bikes and parts
#2-Team support at selected events, including food and a fully stocked repair shop
#3-Access to the RACING GREYHOUNDS team only race series
#4-Deep discounts on team clothing
#5-Discounts at select team sponsors and access to Camp Greyhound Iceman resort ;)

... SWEET! Awesome discounts are assumed if you are on a race team, but the RACING GREYHOUNDS have some of the best discounts around for group buys that happen in a very timely and organized manner. You've also probably seen our awesome compound set up at select events this year, and we have that same set up at over 70 events across the state at mountain bike races, road races, triathlons, and cyclocross events. In addition to that, the RACING GREYHOUNDS also have our own team series consisting of 8 unique events throughout the riding season. All of these events are exclusive for team members only, and are free! Want more?! In addition to that, we also offer training services for our Cat 5 road and Beginner and Sport mountain bike and triathlete team members. It's fun to race, but when you are just starting out, it can be very overwhelming. We will work with you to make it as fun as possible, and help you achieve your goals in 2016. Lastly, we will also have some smokin' deals for you for team clothing as well as multiple group buys throughout the year. 

We do realize that not everyone is ready to commit to 5 races, and some riders just want to ride, and for that we are offering "Touring Club Level" sponsorships for the 2016 race season. The "Touring" sponsorship entitles you to a discount on goods (Not quite as good as the race team sponsorship), access to team support at events, and access to our team only race series. If you are looking for an easy way to get your feet wet with racing without diving in, the Touring Club sponsorship is right for you. 

The RACING GREYHOUNDS are THE team to race for. Check us out at events all across the state here: http://followgram.me/tag/racinggreyhounds

In addition to racing, we also host numerous group rides every week, and long rides a few times every month. When you become a RACING GREYHOUND, you are joining the best group of people to ride with.

We want you! Don't hesitate to apply to the RACING GREYHOUNDS team for 2016. If you haven't raced bikes before, or if you are a seasoned veteran, this is the race team for you! If you have any more questions about racing, come stop by Cycle to Fitness anytime to talk racing. You can also e-mail us at daniel@cycletofitness.com and I will do my best to answer questions for you.

Spots are limited on our race team, so quit reading and apply already!!!
