national qualifying

Hey all,

i was looking on the USCF's web site and can't find anywhere the criteria needed to qualify for Nationals (Road Race and TT's). I went over to the Tri page and found theirs in seconds. Ugh, can someone point me to a link that's got the criteria for various ages? Is it number of places deep and various qualifiers or is it time driven etc?

Looking for specifics here.

Thanks

Thanks efficiency. So if I read the rules right, there is no mention of "qualifying" anywhere. It sounds like if you hold a USCF license and feel like giving it a whirl, anyone is welcome to do so. Did I read that correctly? No qualification needed?

Damn...

Thanks

Well...qualifying only insomuch as you have to have the right category license. If you can make it to cat 1 to enter the Elite men's road race, I'd say you're qualified.

Read the section for RR's again. There is no qualifying per se but you have to be a certain CAT.

What age and in what CAT do you race?

race age

Ahh I see. I'm 30-34 this year, 35+ next year.

So for racing the RR you basically need to be Cat 3 or better but for the TT you can be Cat 1-5.

Got it, thanks!
