You are killing these events!
I have enough upgrade points after this race so will petition for an upgrade to Cat 3 :) Riding single speed for the past 10 months has done wonders for my strength and speed out of the saddle. Just need to work on my "power" in longer stretches. That's where the women "roadies" kick my butt.
It's official. Category upgrade request was approved :)
In reality it doesn't change much in which races I participate in Michigan, as I've purposely stayed out of any Cat 4 specific races and racing in the Cat 3/4 "Sport" division. But other bigger venues will have Cat 1 through 3 and then Cat 4, so will be forced to race with the Elite Women. Nothing like being forced to race with people that are way better than you to make you up your game :) Looking forward to the challenge.
too bad the O cup (Ontario events) are so far east.
