Double Centuries Earn WUCA Credit
I recently signed up for a double century in California, the Inyo Double Series. March.
I noted that the World Ultracycling Association (WUCA) didn't count the double century category in any of their records. I contacted WUCA and posed a question: if WUCA credits 6 hour events (that don't approach the 200 mile mark) wouldn't it be reasonable to consider the double centuries as an `ultracycling' event? I received a welcome reply and response.
Today (to be announced in January) the WUCA board created a new category for consideration of granting mileage credit for their various awards. I'm impressed. A quick response and a thoughtful decision. One that may well increase WUCA membership and increase enrollment in WUCA accredited double centuries.
