Category Upgrade Information
All rider upgrades are processed through your My USA Cycling account. The request will be sent to the person responsible for your area and/or category. You will need to follow the instructions online and provide the information about your race experience and placings.
The information you provide must include:
- Name of event
- Race date
- Type of event
- Number of participants
If the administrator approves the upgrade, your account will be changed so that when you request a new license, the category will be changed.
For road, track, and cyclo-cross category changes, your Local Association representative will also provide stickers for your license if you are not requesting a new one.
Note that road, track, and cyclo-cross Category 1 and mountain bike Pro upgrades require a license reissue. To reissue your license, sign in to your My USA Cycling account and click on Purchase/Renew License button located above your name and license number. You will then arrive at a page that displays offers you the opportunity to purchase a reissued license.
Only races permitted by USA Cycling or foreign races permitted by a UCI-affliated national federation will count for upgrading.
Officials, mechanics and coaches have their own unique levels of license and upgrade requirements.
