An annual or one-day license is required. There are 3 categories for USA Cycling MTB racing: The lowest is Cat 3, then Cat 2, and the highest is Cat 1. You must race in the category on your license. However, you can self-select the category on your license. Here’s how: On the USA Cycling website, go into your account, select licenses, go to menu, scroll down and select upgrade. There is no strict criteria for MTB category upgrades, you just need to show a few races to indicate your level of race experience if you want to be Cat 1 or 2. Any problems just call USA Cycling, they are very helpful: 719-434-4200”.
