    Cat3

    I made it!

    And a lot faster than I ever expected, but I plan to spend the rest of the year supporting the team and learning as much as possible about tactics.

    Good job! Anyone can move up to the 4's but you have to earn that upgrade to the 3's.

    I made it this year too. Well done! Haven't done my first sanctioned event as a 3 yet, but am looking forward to it.

    Good job Hillmut. I don't know about your area, but I started this season as a Cat 3, and the races are much more animated than Cat 4 was. Our road races this spring have been all attacks from start to finish. It is a lot more fun (and more painful) than Cat 4.

    Do a Cat 1/2/3 race if your already a Cat 3. Now that's a whole lot of fun. Just sit in and enjoy the ride!

    Well, that certainly didn't take long!

    I was wondering when you were going to upgrade you sandbagger.

    Congrats on the upgrade and the win at Copperopolis!

    You'll do great in the 3's.

    Maybe I'll see you at the District Championships Cat 1/2/3 race.

    Hey, that's funny. I didn't know you were on here. I ride for Metromint and got fourth at Copperopolis, and talked to you for a bit afterwards. Shaun. Small world.

    Sorry, I won't be there. Work is keeping busy and my folks are coming in from DC tomorrow, so I'll be spending time with them this weekend. (Actually, Friday thru Monday.) My next race will be Wente RR Master 55+ 4/5. Good luck at Sea Otter!
