I have heard mention before of racing cyclists in the US being, say, a Category 2 racer. What are these categories and how are they decided?
Bicycles Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people who build and repair bicycles, people who train cycling, or commute on bicycles. It's 100% free, no registration required.
Here's how it works:
- Anybody can ask a question
- Anybody can answer
- The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
Usually, it is the USA Cycling racing categories that people are referring to.
