Switch categories mid-race?

The other day I participated in a race as a “D” rider. Once it started I realized that I was the only one in that category.

I wanted to switch to “C” since it had more riders.

Is it possible to switch categories mid-race?


No that is not possible.

While not possible to change categories once you’ve started an event, here are a couple of thoughts:

First, everyone is really in the same race at the same time. It’s only the results that are separated. So, just do your best to stay with the fastest people you can. And if you’re the only one in your category you get the win!

Second, if you check the companion app before the event starts you can see how many people are signed up. If you’re the only one (or even if the group is really small) you can just change your registration before logging in to the event.
