Series Registration and Mandatory Move-Ups

Register for the appropriate category of competition In January of 2011 WORS Guidelines changed, moving away from top age class finishes to overall placing.

Series Registration and Mandatory Move-Ups

As registration for the 2012 series is in full swing, we remind racers to check that they are registering for the appropriate category of competition. In January of 2011 WORS Guidelines changed, moving away from top age class finishes to overall placing. If you place well within your category overall last year please check to see if you are required to advance. The overall placing for Citizen or Sport can be viewed on the website by clicking on either the men’s or women’s series results and replacing the "m" or "f" at the end of the url with an "o".

2012 WORS Guidelines and Rules: up for review and comment

The proposed 2012 WORS Guidelines and Rules are the result of discussions and review by staff and WORS race directors - along with input from racers. Changes from 2011 are highlighted in yellow. We are proposing several class and category changes, some minimum age requirement and, unfortunately, a small increase in fees to cover the rising costs of maintaining the event quality and rider experience we want for WORS. We strive to have guidelines and rules that will keep WORS a strong and growing series. Over the next month, the 2012 guidelines and rules will be finalized.

Subaru Cup Great For Improving Your WORS Overall

Participation in the Subaru Cup by WORS Series Registrants provides an excellent opportunity to improve your series point total and advance in the series overall standings.

There are two possible series scores for the Subaru Cup, one for the Legacy Cross-Country and one for racer’s placing in either the Outback Super D or Impreza Short Track presented by Wheaties Fuel. Participation in the Legacy Cross-Country is required to receive a second score from either the short track or super d toward a racer’s WORS overall score.

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.
