Racing Age: Your CX racing age for the 2012 season is your age on December 31, 2013. CX racing age is generally one year greater than road, track or MTB racing age.
An easy way to calculate your CX racing age is 2013 – year of birth. For example, a rider born on March 2, 1978 would have a racing age of (2013 – 1978 =) 35.

What category do I enter… A, B, or C Race?
A (CX Cat 1-4) is the fastest group out there – also might be called expert, elite. Highly competitive – if you aren’t an experienced racer (in cyclocross or another discipline) this is likely not the group for you. Open to all USAC CX Categories including one day licenses. USAC CX Category 1-2 for sure, Category 3s with aspirations of upgrades or speed, and Cat 4s with significant experience in other disciplines.
B (CX Cat 3-4) is the intermediate group – faster and more experienced than “C” riders but not at “A” pace yet. Open to USAC CX Category 3 and 4 riders, including one day licenses.
C (CX Cat 4) is the beginner group – new racers or first time cyclocrossers should usually start here and move to “B” when comfortable. Open to USAC CX Category 4 and one day licenses only.
Masters is for riders with a racing age (on Dec 31, 2013) equal to or greater than the indicated age.
Masters A is often the second fastest group on the course, just behind the A race. Basically “A” racers that are older and have family/career commitments.
Masters B is generally a bit slower than B, as the average age is higher in the Masters group.For new racers eligible to race masters, you might want to try both “C” and Masters B to see which you prefer.
