QCW Team Points Program

As amended 3/10/17

Any competitive cycling event that has official scorers and gives awards and/or recognition for finishing or placing will qualify for points and, unless otherwise noted, entry fee reimbursement.  Points accumulate by calendar year.

Each event, whether race (sanctioned or unsanctioned), grand fondo, or time trial will all be tracked and eligible for one point.    

Specific program guidelines are as follows:

  • Charity rides and grand fondo’s will qualify for points but not cash reimbursement.
  • Working a QCW event = 1 point (minimum)
  • Hosting a minimum of 5 coordinated and published training rides (in current QCW kit) =
  •     1 point (max of 3 points per year)
  • National Championship events (USAC, Senior Games, etc.) = 2 points
  • Serve as a QCW Club Officer, Board Member, Director, Manager, or Coordinator (as    defined in the QCW Management Structure document) = *2 points
  • Lead a board approved Committee = 1 point
  • Participate in five Cleves Time Trials = 1 point (maximum of 2 points)
  • QCW Race Directors and Time Trial Series Coordinators = 5 points
  • Cat Up = 1 point for each level during a calendar year (applies to your primary
  • discipline only).  For example, one cannot collect points for moving up a level in both Mountain Bike and Road.
  • Attend QCW Board Meetings = 1 point (for every two meetings) NEW for 2017!


* Points for partial year service will be granted at the discretion of the Board.


Award Levels



10 Points = Free kit (includes short sleeve jersey and shorts or bib shorts) or up to $100 cash.  (Points to this level can be earned exclusively through volunteer efforts.)


15 Points = Free kit or $100 PLUS $125 in clothing credit, or up to additional $93.75 in cash


20 Points = Free kit or $100 PLUS $225 in clothing credit, or up to additional $168.75 in cash


25 Points = Free kit or $100 PLUS $325 in clothing credit, or up to additional $243.75 in cash


30 Points = Free kit or $100 PLUS $425 in clothing credit, or up to additional $318.75 in cash



Riders who move from another competitive team to QCW and collected what would have been equal to at least 10 race points under our current system will qualify for a free basic team kit.  It is expected that they will attempt to participate in a similar number of race events in the year following their move to QCW. 


Beginning at the 15 Point Level, as outlined above, Team Members may request up to 75% of their Clothing Credit be paid in cash to offset any qualifying race fees expended during the calendar year (assuming the race fees were properly recorded in the QCW Event Logger).


Riders who leave QCW to join another Team will not qualify for any clothing.  However, we will honor our commitment to cover race fees that they would be otherwise entitled (75% of the clothing allowance they earned). 


We will audit accounts randomly and any intentionally incorrect logs may result in total forfeiture of benefits at the Club’s discretion.


IMPORTANT: You must accrue at least one QCW volunteer point (or have someone volunteer on your behalf) to qualify for any benefits.  No exceptions.  No excuses.


Free kits and additional kit items are only available to members who have signed a QCW Rider Contract for the coming season.


Please visit the QCW website for a long list of additional Team Rider Benefits including unique benefits for Junior Riders.




NOTE: Cash is available ONLY up to the level of race fees entered in the Event Logger.  


QCW Online Event Logger


It is the responsibility of the rider to set up an account, login, and enter all required information in the QCW Online Event Logger (  A link to this site is also available on our website under the Rider Benefits section.  Events not recorded by the specified year-end deadline will not be considered for either points or fee reimbursement.


Each event should be recorded by the rider by no later than 30 days following the event.


All volunteer points MUST be recorded in the system in order to be recognized.  There is a section in the drop down to enter volunteer activity.  You must record all charity rides as well.  These rides are not eligible for fee reimbursement but will be included when calculating total points for the individual rider.


When participating in more than one qualifying event in a single day, each event must be entered separately.  This is particularly important when the promoter offers discounts for multiple races.  So let’s say you are a Masters Cat 4 rider and you sign up for the 4/5 race, the 4 race, and the Masters 40+ race.  Discounts for the second and third races must be shown.  For example, it would be logged like this: Cat 4/5 Race $30, Cat 4 Race $10, Masters 40+ Race $10.


You must also record your race results (i.e. 1st, 23rd, etc.).  If you did not start, enter “DNS”.  If you did not finish, enter “DNF”.


For QCW sponsored events where the race fee is waived due to your membership on the Team, you put $0 in for entry fee.  The same for volunteering.
