I've been riding in an all-cats winter series here in London to get some form for when the racing gets harder in the middle of the season. Also widely recognised as a good place to pick up points if one of your aims is to go up a category in the season. I've entered three races and come top 6 in all of them. This isn't really much of a surprise to me as I rode at that kind of level for the few races I did last year.
Later in the year I'll be aiming to take part in two races a week. Generally one mid-week on a circuit, with road races at the weekend. I've also been invited to ride in a stage race in southern France in May, and I'll be hopefully taking part in a couple more British stage races, as well as go for good times in the Marmotte, the Ardechoise (long version), the Megeve-Mont Blanc and Dragon Ride cyclosportifs.
The aim for the year is to enter BCF second category status, and from there on just see how high I can get in the rankings this year.
FYI - I'm not trying to 'show off', and I'm not interested in being patted on the back or anything - In fact, this thread wasnt really my idea. 55/Rad mentioned that you guys might give me some 'feedback'.
So feel free to give me some 'feedback' on my season so far and my future plans.
