Registration for the 2011 Race season is here.

Please go to http://www.newmexicosportsonline.com/ZiaVelo.htm and register for the 2011 ZVRC season.

The cost is a flat $25.00 and there should be no additional fees on your card. And, to quote the SOAPBOXER (Shane Cunico)

"Memberships this year will be $25.00. These are funds to support the
team, buy the annual USAC license, pay fees for the races we sponsor,
etc. After sponsorship is finalized, there WILL be additional
benefits from being a member, but at this time, we cannot, with any
degree of certainty, describe what they will be.

Once the membership drive period is over (about the same date as the
jersey order), no other FULL Memberships will be available. What does
that mean? It means that anyone joining the club after that date will
not receive the same benefits as the members that do so before that
date. It is a simple matter of economics. Once we know what
sponsorship we have, we want to help out the members in the best way
we can, and it will not be fair to have folks join, just because of
the bennies. We want team members who want to be a full and
enthusiastic member of the club, not someone looking for a handout.
We are a racing club, you are encouraged (though not required) to

Getting Heaterized

Starting this Wednesday (with the luck of the Irish) ZVRC will begin the Heater Season. The team participates in a race pace training ride that is designed to help with developing some intensity to coincide with the endurance that has been building up for the past few months.  Below are the rules of da' HEATAH -- thanks Shane

Ride time is departure time.  To the second on the GPS.

This is a DROP Ride!!!  The intent is to simulate race effort.  We
don't wait on flats, cracked riders, or bad tactics.

Do your share.  Make friends.

If you don't know the route and are on the front...don't be surprised
if you turn around and are alone.

NO AEROBARS!  This is not anything but a safety and fairness issue.
If you feel you have to use them, cool, just not on the Heater.  If
you use them, you are on your own.

Pacelines.  If you are not totally comfortable in the paceline/
echelon, sit on the back.  Better to learn, than cause a wreck.

Effort.  If you are so cracked that you cannot ride in the paceline,
learn to ride on the back of the rotating group.  No shame in it.
When you are strong enout to pull without causing issues, come on in.
(I'll take all the help I can get).

No training ride is worth a wreck..Be careful, be courteous,
and ....have fun.  "(sort of)
