What does your USCF License say?
I'm a Cat 4. Hopelessly mired in Cat 4dom I might add. AND.....LOVING it. That lets me do the Vets races. And that's all I've ever cared about (I didn't really get into bike racing much until I was 35+, now I'm 49, so the chances of me upgrading to Cat 3 are Cat ZERO). Did I mention how bad I suck at this sport yet?
My racing age is FIFTY. Is that the USCF plan to get you depressed, by reminding you you'll be a year older @ the end of 2007?
