Please read this carefully.

Because of the structure of the race, the competition of the teams and the payment aspect, this is the only way we can accommodate all aspects to work together. It seems complicated but if the instructions below are followed, it will work.

These are the Instructions on how this works:

Instructions on Creating a Corporate Team for Its Employees Competitive Teams

3.  Click on Create A New Team (the green button to the right) to set up the company name, payment options, Password Code and how many employees will be paid for.
