that should come with your license for the details or go to the USA cyling website. Basically, 10 mass start races and you can move up to 4. After that you have to earn points by finishing in the top 6 in races or get a certain number of top 10 finishes in so many races (10 top tens in your last 25 races, I think). Despite the rules, you can also just write your district rep and request an upgrade and use your results/experience to justify it.
