First Claim Member:

Cyclists are allowed to be a member of more than one club, but can be a first claim member of just one. The rider can usually only race in the colours of the first claim club and that club’s name should be used in results. Other memberships are second claim. Riders can have various reasons to take out second claim memberships. Sometimes it’s to stay in contact when the move away or it may be gain access to the club events of another club.
