    2018 Bootleg Canyon Winter Gravity Series / USA Cycling License categories?

    Who's going? Nevada State Champs Jan 19-21. I'm going to try and make it.

    Anyone care to explain how Cat 1 and 2 translates to classes in Enduro racing? And the difference between Open and Pro?

    The categories are basic beginner, sport, expert...but you need an annual USAC license to race Cat 1. Not sure, but elite level riders without an annual licence is probably why the Open class exists as well.

    That was my question. I race Expert Enduro, which really doesn't mean anything in Enduro racing. It seems the sandbagger who wins amateur would usually have podium'd expert as well, at least in the Colorado series. It sounds like I'm forced to either race in Pro or Cat 2? Doesn't make sense... It says Pro competes with Open. Why is Cat 1 forbidden? I guess I need to buy an annual license to race one or two USA cycling events if I want to be in the appropriate class.
