USA Cycling Collegiate License Upgrades
BLACKSBURG, VA — Before you register and prepare to race this weekend however please pull out your license and check it right now. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR COLLEGIATE MTB CATEGORY!!!! This past weekend we had many racers compete in categories that their license did not specify. Even many riders who have been racing in A’s or B’s for multiple years did not have the correct category! IT IS SUPER IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE CORRECT CATEGORY ON YOUR LICENSE! Please if you are racing C’s and your license says D’s go ahead and request the upgrade, it is automatic. Same for B’s. If you are racing B’s but your license says C go ahead and upgrade it!
And finally if you raced A’s this past weekend and your License says D, C, or B put in your upgrade right now please! Go ahead and put it in for B as it is automatic and will get you to at least B then go ahead and put in results, reasons, your open license category and all that good information in your A request! You will not be permitted to race the A category again until your license is updated (hence at least upgrading to B’s 🙂 ) . This applies to everyone!
PLEASE CHECK YOUR LICENSE RIGHT NOW! If you have any questions at all please let myself or Brian know and we will do everything we can to help out! Rules on upgrading are found here for collegiate only, and here for Open Upgrades which USAC Collegiate is based off of. I hope this clears up things and please check your license now!
