2022 EWS CATEGORIES

Women U21 (2002-2005)
Women Master 35+ (1987+)
*effective 2021, Men Master age was changed from 40+ to 35+
As the various EWS Qualifier events do not all use these 6 official categories, EWS qualifer ranking points are assigned as follows:
Providing all the categories are racing the same number of stages / same course, riders are sorted into one of the above categories based on their year of birth. Riders with an EWS membership are assigned ranking points for their finish position within that group.
CHANGING AGE GROUPS
Riders who are in the final year of the U21 category will race and collect points in that category. If they secure a spot on the Reserved List in the U21 category they just select their new age category when they sign up for an EWS race(s) the following season. Same for riders moving up to Masters.
