Mandatory Move-Ups

WORS Guidelines for 2010 have been posted on the website and by now most of you have received your 2010 WORS Race Handbook in the mail. Please take a moment to review the new guidelines overall and with respect to mandatory move-ups. You will find the language regarding move-ups in the category descriptions. Also please be aware that many WORS racers are also subject to the USA Cycling rules regarding advancing to the next level of competition.

It was decided at last fall's meeting of WORS race directors that using a racers overall performance within the category versus a racer?s placing within an age class would be a more accurate assessment for identifying racers that could and should move up to the next level of competition.? The new guidelines state that those finishing in the top 20% of?WORS Citizen and Sport categories and top 15% of the Comp category overall in 2009 must advance for 2010. Citizen and Sport racers can check their overall placing by opening the 2009 Overall Results at the WORS website for their category and replacing the ?m? or ?w? at the end of web address at the top of the page with an ?o?.

WORS overall policy regarding mandatory move-ups is that every individual circumstance bears review and that is why our criteria are in the Guidelines section and not the Rules.? Should you feel that your individual circumstances do not support advancement, you must petition WORS in writing to continue to compete in your current category.? Without acceptance of a petition from a racer meeting the mandatory move-up criteria, should that racer elect to remain in the category that they raced in 2009 they would be at risk of disqualification should someone file a protest citing the Guideline stating, Any competitor?registering in a category for which they are ineligible will be Disqualified!
