Grading rules for 2015

  • All top 5 riders in S1, S2 and S3 category (2014) were moved up (based on overall NPS standings)
  • Riders in Senior 4 category (2014) that won at least 1 race were moved up
  • Winner of a Senior 4 race is moved up to Senior 3 race for the following round
  • No mandatory upgrades for Senior Women categories
  • No mandatory downgrading for 2015
  • Newcomers who didn’t race in 2014 can select any category with exception of Senior 1 Men / Women

Several riders have upgraded themselves during previous seasons and thus will continue in the category they upgraded to, or have been identified for upgrade.

Riders are welcome/encouraged to upgrade themselves to a higher category (as high as Senior 2 Men / Women) if they feel that they will have more of a challenge, it also means you will get better value out of your licence and entry fee by racing an additional lap!

All riders have a right to appeal their upgrade, as agreed at the 2013 Offroad AGM.

A rider will need to specifically request to be downgraded by sending an email with the subject “2015 XC NPS category downgrade request” to the XC Co-ordinator

You will need to include your full name, CI Licence number, your 2014 category you competed in, and the 2015 category you are requesting to be downgraded to.
You will also need to include a paragraph justifying why you require downgrade.

Your 2015 racing category will appear on your Cycling Ireland Licence

Any questions/queries please drop an email to: the XC Co-ordinator
