#BAAracing began because we wanted to have some fun. It is that simple. Everyone is welcome on our team regardless of your skill level. Our team is over 120 members now in several states, with the bulk of us in Arizona, followed by a large chunk in Utah. We have one simple and profoundly critical rule when joining our team: Please No Jerks Allowed. I almost laugh out loud when I say that, but for anyone who has been around cycling long enough you will eventually understand what I mean.
We have an incredible team culture where selflessness, teamsmanship, sportsmanship, positivity, encouragement, and plain ole fun are the core principles and values we strive to create and protect.
In all seriousness, we welcome everyone and go out of our way to support our teammates and club members. If you are an elite cyclist who is looking for a competitive group of teammates to challenge you and help you find a podium then you will fit right in. Likewise, if you are over weight, new to cycling, and are looking for a team or group of friends to stat cycling with and gain more experience without facing judgement… then you also found right the team.
BAA Racing has some of the fastest cyclists in the entire south west region of the United States. We also have plenty of beginners and folks who have zero interest in actually racing. Our team is comprised of elite racers and club/joy riders alike. Remember, we do this for fun. We love to ride, and we love the friendships we make while riding. Come join us. We welcome you on our team! Check the calendar at anytime to find one of our training rides or events we are competing in.
How Do I Join BAA Racing Team or Club?
Joining the Bike Accident Attorneys Racing Team is actually pretty easy. Once you are a team member you will be privy to exclusive benefits and discounts. The easy steps to joining our team or club are listed below.
In regards to the Team kit. Ben Dodge founded his own cycling apparel company to produce the highest quality cycling gear that you can possibly find, and to do so for the sole purpose of BAA Racing/Club members enabling them to purchase the best of the best at a fraction of retail costs. BAA Team kits are ordered a few times per year through our online team store and then custom made for you. Therefore there are never kits “in stock.” BAA Apparel contracts with the same manufacturer for cycling kits of several big name pro peleton teams. The comparable priced pro kits usually sell for $400+ per kit. Ben sells these kits to our team and club members at cost, of approximately $145 per kit! You can learn more about our kits here.
Steps to Join the Team/Club:
1. Email Marc Muhlestein at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest in joining either the club or the team.
2. FOR TEAM, Go to USA Cycling and purchase your cycling license declaring your team, etc. A license is required in order to compete in USAC sanctioned races, and for our team insurance coverage, as well as access to our team benefits. Once registered then email your license number and category info to Marc.
3. Order a team kit. If you can provide proof of a top 10 overall finish or a top 5 category finish then your kit is FREE. Otherwise you need to order a team kit. Team kits are sold at cost ($140-$150) for the entire kit. Sizing chart is here. Like our firm page on Facebook and join our Team Facebook Group to be kept in the loop on when the next kit order will occur. The team store link is here: https://www.bikeaccidentattorneys.com/team-bicycle-gear/
4. Download and register for our Team App. Most of our communication will be conducted through this app. There are racer profiles, bios, links to sponsors, calendars, news, team deals, and more. Team App is restricted to team and club members only, so you will need to download it and request access. Once we verify your kit purchase and/or your USAC license purchase (USAC license only if you intend to join the team) then you will be granted access in the team app. BAA Racing Team App is here:
