We, Little 500 riders and Indiana University students, petition IUSF to make the following rule changes/additions to the 2012 and future Little 500 Team Manuals under Section III: Eligibility rules and protest procedures:

Any rider(s) that satisfies one or more of the following shall forfeit his/her Little 500 eligibility for the calendar year in which the infraction occurs and for all subsequent years in which that rider would have otherwise been eligible:

1. Rider has contracted with a professional team.

2. Rider has received a salary, in the form of money, equipment, or other goods and services, from a professional team in exchange for a commitment or promise to contract with that team in the future.

3. Rider has participated in official team rides, training camps, or practices with a professional cycling team.

4. Rider has accepted or used equipment given to him/her by a professional cycling team.

5. Rider has agreement or contract with a professional agent who contracts and negotiates with professional cycling teams on his/her behalf.

Such actions create an unfair competitive advantage by providing the given rider(s) with benefits from professional training, professional coaching, professional equipment, and the use of professional facilities.

While the IUSF encourages participants in the Little 500 to reach their full potential, the above-mentioned actions are factors that suggest the rider has become, for all intents and purposes, a professional.
