And does the USA opperate on that system? of elite cards? (eg. can race in the elite cat. draft legal, for money, have to earn them etc...)

If so, what would you compare it to in road cycling? cat 2?

When I was racing tri years ago, I was at that level, but opted to NOT go pro. It wasn't too long after that when I basically quit racing multisport and drifted into bike racing. There are specific rules as to pro cards (which were different at the time I was racing), so you can look them up. As to a comparable USCF cat? Well, even VERY good tri guys routinely get spanked in lower cat road races, so it's hard to compare. Cat 2 would be a fair comparison, however.
