2014 Evolution Cycling Club p/b Long & Foster

Member Incentive/Reimbursement Plan

A points-based system is used to attach a value to the various contributions members make toward the success of Evolution Cycling Club. The following criteria allow team members to calculate their own “level” and determine what they can do to get to the next level.

A certain level of discretion may be exercised by the Board of Directors as required to ensure members are treated appropriately.

Total reimbursement will be calculated based on each member’s portion of the total club contribution multiplied by the total dollar amount available to the plan.

Rider Sponsorship Benefits (1)

Team Level Points
Race Dollar
Payout (4)(6)
Discount Level
40+ 1 jersey, 2 shorts/bibs $500 A
2 15-39 0 $150 B
3 0-14 0 $50 B

(1) Members of the Evolution Cycling Club Sponsored Team are not reimbursed under the system above, but are required to submit their reimbursement spreadsheet at the end of the year.

(2) Clothing allocation and Discount Level will be based on the points accumulated in the previous season.

(3) The clothing allocation above does not include the jersey included in the membership fees.

(4) Reimbursement payout is calculated at the end of the season by prorating a rider’s points score at the end of the year over the total score for the club and then multiplying by the total reimbursement dollars available to the plan. The maximum payout is there to prevent a rider getting a disproportionate share of the rider reimbursement funds.

(5) Where sponsors offer a tiered discount system Level A is the preferred level.

(6) All riders who request rider reimbursement must serve as a volunteer for Evolution Cycling Club during the sponsorship year. This includes, but is not limited to: serving as a club officer, committee member, team leader, event coordinator, race marshal or ride leader.

(7) Should conditions between a member and Evolution Cycling Club deteriorate beyond a point of reconciliation, Evolution Cycling Club will terminate such membership without providing any reimbursements.

Travel Expense Reimbursement

Club members who wish to compete as a team (4 or more riders) at stage races or weekend events that require travel outside of the Virginia and MABRA area may submit a proposal to have the club sponsor all or part the trip.

Members of the Evolution Cycling Club Sponsored Team are not entitled to Travel Expense Reimbursement under this program.
