Licenses?

OK, I think I know that you must have a license to race cross...but which one and how? Just go to usacycling.org and sign up? Clueless, sorry.

Get it AFTER Sep 1. The rates drop as it's only valid for the calendar year purchased.

It depends on your locale. Some race organizations, such as OBRA (in Oregon) require licenses of their own, instead of USCF.

I got the NORBA license since I don't do road races but will do 2 or 3 mtb races. It too comes with a Cat 4 cross designation.
