Default Age Groups and Series Races

Hello,
I'm a little confused over what age to list when participating in a
series of races. According to USAT you are to race in the age group you are
the day of the race. But, when I signed up for a race series (7 races, the
last one in September), the series rules said to sign up at the age you are
as of the last race. Is this correct? I'm now 44, with my birthday in
August, so I will be in the 45 to 49 age group before the last race. In what
age group will I be listed in the USAT standings?

Thanks,
Larry

If I remember correctly, you'll be ranked in the 45-49 AG anyway, because
USAT ranks according to the age you are on the last day of the ranking
year. So even if the race had put you in the 40-44 AG for the 1st few
races, USAT would rank you in 45-49.
