Question for "periodic" racers...(4 posts)

Question for "periodic" racers...funknuggets

Potentially stupid question.

Im just easing back into racing form after about a 8 year layoff from the bike. I ve already paid two one days this year and then will likely have to pay a oneday for a race in August... if my racing is periodic, meaning sometimes I dont know when my next race will be (family, job come first)... should I just buck up the $50 for the 1 year, or just continue to go with the 1day licenses from USCF?

Another question, I raced in college... again 8years ago, do you think after I get my License I could get an upgrade to 4 to get out of the 5s, or do you think I need to get the 10 starts again?

Ok... just one more. Those that have gone with the 1 year, do you think it gives you justification ... or cause you to feel that you should race MORE? I just know that I dont get many opportunities to get away and am trying to balance spending the $50 on a Lic, or on... new shorts or something.

Thanks in advance
Chris.

How many one day licenses does it take to get to the yearly fee?

Once you get to that number, then you know to get the yearly license.

If you know who your district rep is, you may be able to talk to them about your racing experiences and get bumped to Cat4 immediately.

That help?

Then again I usually only race 2-3 times a year.
FWIW: I get the yearly license...biknben

I get the Norba and the USCF licenses together so I save a little money. The offer both for $75.

I do enough races that is saves me money. If that weren't the case, I'd still prefer not to have to fill out the extra paperwork the day of the race. Even if it cost me a few extra bucks overall.
