Anyone know what is going on with this? As far a i am aware licenses have been sent out with either Masters or Expert categories (mine just says master) but the online entry system lists a combined race. Not hugely concerned, but would be good to know if this is purely administrative eg one less group on the start line or if Masters and Expert are in fact competing against each other for points and rankings etc?
You need to e-mail or call Brian Furness at BC to get an answer....he should hopefully know or know who does.
Due to few numbers at nps last year it's a combined cat, but no idea as to points etc. I don't really care about them!so not too worried!
I don't know the specifics of this case but combining two or more small categories together is pretty common, Whenever I've seen it points have been awarded according to your position in your category for rankings, rather than your position in the overall race if that makes sense, a race within a race almost. As above best check with BC or the organisers if you want to be certain.
