Rider ranking

Can anyone explain the bike rider rankings. I understand a Cat 1 rider is better then a Cat 2. Does it go to Cat 5? How does one get rated.

Racers are categorized from Cat 5 to Cat 1.

You join a club, and pay for your racing licence, and you are automatically a Cat 5. If you win a bunch of races, next year you can move up to a Cat 4. And so on.

You too can be a Cat 4!! To move from Cat 5 (buying your $60 annual license is the only requirement, don't even have to join a club) to Cat 4 all you need to do is start 10 qualifying mass start races. You don't even have to finish. (Of course you won't be having any fun as a 4 if this is you)

To move up from there you need to start winning or placing in the top 10 in the Cat4 races, and so on.
