DESCHUTES BREWERY WAREHOUSE PARTY
Deschutes Brewery loves to have a really good time. This will be the party of the year. We promise. Deschutes Brewery will host another not-to-be-missed warehouse party on Saturday night when they host their warehouse celebration of all things Cyclocross.
OBRA has re-mapped their cyclocross categories to align with the USAC cyclocross categories. The following is the breakdown of the new categories.
If you were a Beginner you are a 5
If you were a Cat C you are a 4
If you were a Cat B you are a 3
If you were a Cat A and do not have a USAC 1, you are a 2
If you were a Cat A and a USAC 1, you are a 1.
There is no self-upgrade to Cat 2 or Cat 1. This must be earned.
A Cat 3 rider may ride in either the 3/4 or the 2/3, or even in both if you are so inclined.
Juniors with a racing of age 9-18 who are Cat 3, 4, or 5 will ride in the regular Junior field
Juniors with a racing age of 13-18 who are Cat 1, 2, or 3 will ride in the Elite Junior field
Juniors under the racing age of 12 may not ride in an adult field
A mixed field, like 3/4 or 2/3 will be scored as 1 field. The separate categories will not be broken out.
Anyone who wants to be a Cat 1 racer must be a Cat 1 in USAC or request an upgrade through us. Because memberships were issued after we had made the initial change, but before we made the secondary change, your membership may not reflect your correct category. If your category is incorrect- please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need to request an upgrade to Cat 1- send a note to email@example.com.
