  1. NEW Upgrade Points Structure

After some careful review of category numbers, the OCA Upgrade/Downgrade Committee has come up with the following upgrade points structure for this season and going forward. A reminder that the committee reviews the structure each season as well as the attendance allocation per category to determine if some moving around of members is required to have equal category sizes.Point StructurePoints will be based on the following criteria within each category. Note races not running ability based categories will not have any upgrade points.

13 + Riders in Category 6-12 Riders in Category 1-5 Riders in Category
15 Points 1st place 8 points 1st place 4 Points 1st place
11Points 2nd place 6 points 2nd place 2 Points 2nd place
8 points 3rd place 4 points 3rd place
6 points 4th place 2 points 4th place
4 points 5th place
2 points 6th place
1 point 7th place

Mandatory Upgrades are required at 35 pointsOptional Upgrades begin once a rider obtains 20 points Other Important Upgrade Information

  • Points will be carried over for one season.
    • So any points earned in 2015 (unless already upgraded or reaching the mandatory cut-off) will be what the rider starts with for the next Cyclocross season.
  • There are no exemptions to mandatory upgrades without approval by the OCA Upgrade/Downgrade Committee. ANY rider who has enough points to be mandatory upgraded, will be required to upgrade.
  • The OCA Upgrade/Downgrade Committee also reserves the right to review the category numbers at the end of the season and should re-allocation of members be required, can implement a system prior to the 2017 CX season (Sept 2016-December 2016) to achieve this.
