USCF question...(4 posts)

USCF question...Bigburlymtnman

If I have never raced in a USCF race, and don't have a liscense, will they give me a one-day-only temporary liscense? I've heard of them doing that, but I just want to make sure before I drive 2 and a half hours to a race this weekend and find out I can't race. Thanks in advance.

that particular race. But every race here has the 1 day option. If you have a flier you should see it in the rate schedule. You'll pay a little more than card carrying members but they probably won't turn you away.

IF they have a citizens race then you can do that. I am not sure if they changed the rules, but about five years ago when I first started racing I went to a 4/5 race thinking I could purchase a one day license and they said that didn't exist. So I wasn't able to race. I have had a license since then, so maybe they changed the rule. I always thought it was stupid not to have one day licenses atleast for Cat V. I would definitley check into it with the promoter or USCF. I know some of the other race sanctioning bodies out there do have one day licenses.

Most USCF races I've seen offer one day licenses for Cat 5. However, all races have a rider limit, and if it's popular race or a small limit, it could fill up before race day. I'd get the race flier (many are on the internet, now) and check it out. You may be able to enter by mail and then buy your one day license when you get there. Oh, and even if sold out, some offer a waiting list, sort of on standby, to fill the positions of no-shows.
