We here at EV are excited by Cycling BC's revised points system, released yesterday. This goes hand-in-hand with our previously announced collaboration that will see commissaires at the Spring Series. The result is that Spring Series (and probably WTNC) races will bear upgrade points, and more importantly, there's a general commitment that as of now, both categories and the upgrade system will mean something.
For riders at the Spring Series, this means you will have to race your license category. Here's how that works with our fields:
A: Cat 1/2 Men, Cat 1 Women
B: Cat 3 Men, Cat 1/2 Women
C: Cat 4 Men, Cat 3 Women
D: Cat 4/5 Men, Cat 4 Women (and Provincial/Citizen/1-Day license holders)
U19/U17 Men and Women to race their license category
U15/U13 Men and Women to race with Cat 4/5 (exceptions can be requested from CBC by their coaches)
Masters race their license category.
