Different Race Types?

What are all of the different race types and what do they encompass?

There is:
Cross Country(XC) - 10+ mile up and down hill riding?
Short Track XC (STXC) 10- Mile up and down hill?
Down Hill(DH) Fast, technical, drops, all downhill, (length?)
Mountain Cross(MX) ??
and Super D ??

Any other events?
And what are the catagories?
Open, Pro, Cat1-3.
I guessing Pro is the most competitive
Cat 1 is more competitive then Cat 3?
Open is more competitive then Cat 1 and less then Pro?

Is any of that correct of am I just swinging in the breeze?
