    WORS: Comp VS Expert

    I am considering racing a few WORS races next summer, and I am wondering how the Comp category compares to Expert elsewhere in the world? I am typically a top-10 Sport racer or middle of the pack Expert racer, so I'm kind-of on the line when it comes to what category I should race in.

    Thanks,

    from a national perspective, WORS comp = the speedy half of sport.

    historically, the comp class was made up by WORS to ease congestion in the huge sport fields, and to allow old guys to race hard but not kill themselves in doing so and allow for work/family time.

    with all that said, in most cases if a guy wins his comp class in WORS and goes to a large race where there is no comp class and he defaults to sport - such as iceman - he will kick ass and take names. conversely, if some cat 1/2 roadie jumps into a WORS race and sandbags in comp, he will usually do well ( if you define sandbagging as " well ", that is. )

    Well sounds like comp should be a good fit for me then. All I have to do now is get back in shape.

    Someone described Comp as the place where a lot of guys who used to be able to ride expert go, maybe because of family commitments or maybe they aren't as fast as they were 10-20 years ago. There is no way I could hang with the expert riders anymore.
