I would like to know what the requirements are to race in the masters categories and how that differs from the CAT5,CAT4,etc.. requirements.

The requirements are you have to be older than the minimum age.The "problem" is you could be racing against Greg LeMond.

Most of the local masters races I've seen will have a masters Cat 1/2/3 race, maybe a 30+ and then 40+ race, and then the same for the 4/5's. Sometimes the age groupings will be smaller, like 30+, 35+ 45+, 55+, depending upon the number of riders signed up, but still separated by Cat's, too.

You'll almost never see 4/5's racing with 1/2/3's. Believe me, if you are not an excellent racer, you don't want to be racing with the 1's and 2's.
