Calling out to WORS racers, teams and trail advocates on the web

Do you have a website that you would like to share with the WORS community? Are you a member of the WORS community who posts fun, interesting, mountain-bike-related content on a personal, team, or group website? Are you a trail steward who would like to share your work with WORS racers – and perhaps attract the attention of new volunteers in your area? A team who’d like to get the word out? We’d like to know about your site and share it here at WORS.org.

The WORS website is visited over a million times each year. Right now, we’re working on some new site features for the 2011 season. The one that we are most excited about will be a hub for the WORS community – a one-stop spot for new blog updates, race reports, team news and advocacy and trail stewardship. All the important WORS news – from YOU. Please consider sending us your site info so that we may include you.

If you are a WORS racer

Here’s what we need

  • An email entitled – “Please include my site” sent to teamwors@gmail.com
  • The site title
  • The site url
  • A short (100 character max) description of your site for a WORS audience
  • Is it a team site? Personal site of a WORS racer (or aspiring WORS racer)? Advocacy or group site?
  • Optional: Link to your site RSS feed for “updated recently” queue.
  • Optional: Small (16 px X 16 px) .png or .gif image icon for your site.
  • Optional: when we see updates at your site that we really like, can we re-post a link at our WORS hub to share?

If you represent a WORS Team

Here’s what we need

  • An email entitled – “Please include my site” sent to teamwors@gmail.com
  • Your team site url
  • A short (150 word max) description of your team for a WORS audience
  • Is it a team site? Personal site of a WORS racer (or aspiring WORS racer)? Advocacy or group site?
  • Optional: Medium sized (600 px X 400 px) .jpg image of your team.
  • Optional: when we see updates at your site that we really like, can we re-post a link at our WORS hub to share?

We’re also looking to select a small group of “Official WORS Bloggers” for the 2011 season. If you’re interested, please send us an email. We’re looking for people who already maintain an active website and know how to create engaging stories about their experiences on two wheels. Ideally, we’d like to highlight WORS racers at every level of experience and competitive success. Are you Pro – that’s probably pretty interesting. Just race for fun? So do we! Both? Now we’re talkin’. Whatever your reasons for being a part of the WORS community – we’d like to hear from you. We’d re-post an excerpt of your content and your own, personal “New WORS Blogger Update” image here at WORS when you have new content to Feature – and direct readers to your site for the full story.
