Race category descriptions:
A Race - The Aces of the field. If it is a payout race this will be the category. Equivalent to Pro/Cat 1
B Race - Badasses. The every day fast folks most of us are jealous of. Equivalent to Cat 2 and Cat 3 sandbaggers.
C Race - Competitive. Likes the thrill of the chase and a badass wannabe.
D Ride - Developmental. Get out there and see what you can do. No pressure of any kind but you will have a recorded time to reference if you are curious how you stack up with others. Not worried about rankings? We're cool with that.
Categories are self declared but we reserve the right to force sandbaggers into an appropriate category at any time. Hint, if you podium more than once you are probably going to be upgraded. If you "win" a C race with a big gap on the field you will probably be upgraded that race unless you've never raced before.
