    You do not have to buy an international license when obtaining a Semi-Pro license. Not sure of the price as I haven't renewed yet this year. I believe it's the same as the Expert license, like $60.

    Last time I bought a semi license, it was $75, definately don't have to buy international, but eh, what could it hurt, other than (of course) your pocket book......

    if you have a semi-pro license, will they let you race pro? i don't want to shell out again for an international license to just race like 3 usa cycling races a year.

    If you are pro, you have to buy a pro license, or get downgraded to semi. The only races on the entire planet that have semi-pro classes are the NMBS races and US nats. If you aren't doing any of those you could petition to be downgraded I suppose...

    :) I have a semi-pro license, but I had to buy the UCI license for my Cat 1 cross classification and yes, $150 for a license is BS

    Any race sanctioned by USAC will have a Semi-Pro class.

    For national ranking points, but not for actual results. On the EastCoast pro-semi race together at all events except for NMBS races.

    sounds like I need to get downgraded then. there's no way I'm paying $150 for a license.
