What is an Age-Grouper?

Age-grouper is just another way to say amateur. Anyone who does not have a pro/elite license is considered an age-grouper and they race in events according to age groups, typically separated in five-year increments.

This is the take-off point for all you age-groupers looking for information focused on your interests.

Age groups are categorized by five-year increments:

18-19 20-24
30-34 35-39
55-59 60-64
75-79 80-84 85 and up
