My last race was as a cat 2 50-99 and since the cat 1 50+ races the same distance as cat 2, can I race this year as a cat 1 without finishes required to force the move to cat 1? I wanr to register for RHR and Cold spring and I want to confirm that I can race as a cat 1 before I do.

In order to race Cat 1 you must request a upgrade on your USAC licence. You can do that by e mailing Tobin.

In 2017 - USAC changed the upgrade criteria for C1 to be self select rather than needing to accumulate X number of top finishes.

Here is the specific rule:
1D3.(b) For MTB, a rider may choose to be a category 2 or 3, or
category 1 in endurance, without having to earn points.
Once such a choice is made, the rider may not drop back to
a lower category without first requesting and receiving a
downgrade.

As Dave mentioned, shoot me an email and I can change you in the database.
