USA Cycling increases officials' fees and per diems

  
  


USA Cycling will be increasing officials’ fees and per diem, effective immediately.  These increases acknowledge the significant level of effort and professionalism required of and shown by cycling officials.
 
“In the last two years we have tasked our officials with an increased level of responsibility both in terms of work they have to accomplish and dedication to a high level of professionalism,” said USA Cycling Technical Director Shawn Farrell. “USA Cycling officials now adhere to expanded requirements for upgrading, continuing education, increased evaluations and increased license fees. The officials of this country have risen to the challenge, and these fee increases reflect their increased level of professionalism.”

The officials’ per diem rate has been raised from $25 to $35 per day. Officials’ per diem has not risen in 10 years, so this increase is a much needed update reflecting the higher cost of living.
 
Officials base fees are increasing for UCI races so that they will now match the fees established last year for National Championships and NRC/NCC (National Racing Calendar/National Criterium Calendar) races.
 
In effort to attract and retain top talent, not only are the official’s fees for the highest level officials working UCI level events increasing, but official’s fees for C-E category races will also be increasing.  These officials often work long hours at local-level events where the majority of our membership races each weekend and the increase recognizes this hard work and dedication to the sport of cycling.
 
For most races, including UCI races, all officials’ fees are paid by race directors and occasionally supplemented by Local Associations. Officials’ fees for National Championships are paid by USA Cycling.  USA Cycling also pays the fees for the Chief Referees for NRC/NCC races.
