2013 Iceman Cometh Challenge Registration
March 1, 2013: Registration is now full and closed!
The tradition continues but with a new twist! Registration for the Bell's Beer Iceman Cometh and Meijer Slush Cup & Sno Cone events will open Friday March 1, 2013 at 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (or 10:00 AM MST as it is listed on the USA Cycling site). Registration fees are $75.00 for Iceman ($45.00 for riders 18 and under), $45.00 for Slush Cup, and $5.00 for the Sno-Cone. The aggregate field limits are 3,700 riders in Iceman and 300 riders in the Slush Cup. The Sno-Cone does not have a field limit.
First off, if you don’t want to deal with computers on March 1st, there will be a Bell’s Beer Iceman Registration Party in Kalamazoo, Michigan at Bell's Brewery, Inc. : Eccentric Café. Doors open at 12:00pm. We’ll have 400 paper entries available, limit of 3 per person. Plus give aways, one time blowout sale of 2012 merchandise and maybe even a game or two. So come help us celebrate (or drown our frustrations) with the best beer in Michigan.
If you can't make it Kalamazoo, we have made a decision to again utilize USA Cycling's on-line registration system for this year's events. Since 2013 will be the second year using the USA Cycling registration system, we are hoping it all goes smoothly. USAC will be backing up their servers using the Amazon Cloud servers. But if this is your first time registering, you'll need to create an account with USA Cycling before registration opens so all of your data will be pre-populated in the system. Creating an account is free and simple to do. Just look for the "sign in" button in the upper right hand corner of their home page (www.usacycling.org).
A feature of the USA Cycling registration service is the ability to agree to the " Waiver and Release of Liability" form electronically as part of the registration process. That means when you arrive at packet pick-up, you'll be able to skip the customary first step of signing a waiver form. No more pens or registrar's dirty looks!
Both Iceman and Slush Cup are listed under "Bell's Beer Iceman Cometh Challenge" while the Meijer Sno-Cone is listed as separate event in the list of events using the USA Cycling registration system.
You do not need to buy an annual USA Cycling license in order to race in the 2013 Bell's Beer Iceman Cometh Challenge or the Meijer Slush Cup & Sno-Cone. If you decide that you'd like to race in more USA Cycling sanctioned events throughout the year, you can always purchase an annual license through your existing account. If you already have a USA Cycling license, you have a My USA Cycling account and you'll just want to ensure that you've renewed your license for this year!
Foreign riders must have an annual license from their National Governing Body to participate in the Bell's Iceman Cometh Challenge. Foreign riders with a license from their National Governing Body may then create an account with USA Cycling in order to register for events in the US. On the "need an account?" page, there is a small box for foreign riders to click and that will allow you to enter the rest of your data along with your license number.
Remember, you can even add your family members and friends to your account. Sign in to your My USA Cycling page and select "Manage Registration Groups". There you'll be able create different teams that will allow you the ease of registering them all at one time (but you'll want to create a separate account for each of them as well before adding them to your "team"). (Hint - have the person who will be paying for the team's entries be the one to create the team so the correct credit card billing address is on the form). If you register a "team" of riders, you'll be able to electronically sign the waiver for yourself and your friends can log-in to their own accounts and electronically sign the waiver after being registered.
Once you've created an account and are registering for Iceman, Slush Cup or Sno-Cone, the registration system will automatically display only the categories in which you are eligible to participate.
Also this year, you do not have to select an age division. Just enter your desired race and we'll do the rest based on your birthday listed on your USAC account.
All registrations will receive an email confirmation. You can also confirm your registration via your My USA Cycling account.
