ACCC Category Upgrades
WASHINGTON, DC — So, you wanna upgrade? BEFORE you submit the request, make sure that you meet the requirements in the USA Cycling (USAC) rule book section 1D (1D6 for MTB). An incomplete request, or requests with “I think I’m fast enough so I want to be an A”, or “I train with A riders so I should be one” don’t cut and will be denied. To be an MTB A you MUST be a Pro, Cat 1 or Cat 2 (see 7H1C, pages 174/175), and no exceptions will be granted.
A lot of people do not know what a race resume is supposed to look like, I have found a spreed-sheet that VACA uses. It is very simple and as the season goes along you can load more information into the spreed-sheet, until you’ve meet the requirements to upgrade, then the process of upgrading will be a breeze. I should not be having to look up race results, all the information for an upgrade should be there in front of me so I can make the decision right away. Like I said this a very simple one, if anyone finds something that works better for them, please share!
