Eight motorefs pass level A upgrade clinic last weekend


Colorado Springs, Colo. (April 17, 2012) – USA Cycling congratulates the eight individuals that graduated from the level A motoref upgrade clinic at the national governing body's headquarters last weekend.
The level A designation is the highest rank achievable by a licensed motoref and is a requirement for working the nation's biggest events like the Amgen Tour of California or the USA Pro Challenge.
The clinic, held April 12-14, was taught by International Commissaire and member of USA Cycling's Motoref Commission, Carla Geyer (Los Osos, Calif.), National Technical Commission and Motoref Commission member Ed Dailey (Wayne, Pa.), and USA Cycling Technical Director Shawn Farrell.
The weekend included two days of coursework, presentations, and oral and written exams. Now that they've graduated from the weekend course, the motorefs will be evaluated in the field before they're officially confirmed at level A.
Congratulations to the following level A graduates!
Duke Spinelli (Greenville, S.C.)
Loch Miwa (Crestwood, Ill.)
Roger Cravey (Fort Smith, Ark.)
Brett Griggs (Iowa City, Iowa)
Luca Rattazzi (San Francisco, Calif.)
Chris Black (San Luis Obispo, Calif.)
Mark Nelson (Dallas, Texas)
Ted Fisher (Walnut Creek, Calif.)
