Class v. Cat?

OK so I have a chance to try my hand at racing this weekend. It is a road race but instead of Cats they have classes, and only 3, A, B and C. The C is the shortest distance so I am assuming it is the "lowest" class as the B and A both increase in mileage. So my question is what type riders can I expect in the C class? Newbies like me? Cat 5/4? Just trying to get a idea of what to expect. TIA!

A= Pro, 1, 2, 3
B= 3, 4
C= 5s, newbs, kids who run into trees on straight roads

New NCCA rule= you have to be at least a 3 or have 4 Bs races to race As.

Oh great that sounds like it could be dangerous, maybe since it is early in the season here most everyone will stay home.
