Yes I have been there...
Imagine this senerio... A group of cat 3 and 4 guys attack from a group ride, already doing 28 MPH they get a 100 yard lead. Assuming no one will catch them they accelerate. As soon as the attack is seen I chase the group, hitting 34 MPH and catch them, all the sudden I bridge the gap and show up at the back of their group...
Here is how the translation goes... one looks back... where the h#$l did you come from? Oh I don't know? I say... Were you trying to attack? The other looks back, lets drop him, I say try it... we then percede to hit 37 MPH and I just sit in on their wheels for 20 seconds before they finally slow down... Your still here... yep... (dying at this point)... I don't go that easily... , Well they say, you are now officially a fast rider.
First time I knew I was an "A" rider!
Just your average club rider... :)
