I'm a MTBing Newbie and had a few questions as I'm looking to enroll into upcoming races. Looking at a few registrations sheets, how does one attain a Catagory 1, 2, or 3 status? Do you have to start off as a First Timer to begin the ranking process or can you jump into Category 1 status automatically?

Any links regarding this information that I may follow? Looking forward to the upcoming season.

:thumbsup:

You are cat 1, there is no doubt in my mind.

Seriously though, the xc race and training forum has great feedback, as does the root 66 website. Start a cat 3 to get your barings and go from there. It's what I'm doing, just in the SS class.

I don't think you can jump right up to Cat 1 but you can start at a 2. Depending on your skill start as a 3 and assess your results fro there.

Basically 3 is Novice, 2 is Sport and 1 is Expert.
