    Actually, it's far more pathetic than that CI. When I started Cat 5 WAS Cat 4, and you didn't have to upgrade. I remain... a Cat 4.

    Never let it be said that Pcad didn't always reveal the unvarnished and painful truth to his cycling brethren.

    It gets even worse. I started as a 4 way back and they had the gall to make me a 5 this year. You don't even want to know my ranking. <scroll down> <more> <just a bit further> <almost> <there>

    I rather think you will... you have to do 10 races to upgrade! I got upgraded to 4 despite not asking and not wanting to and having finished dead last in the mountaineer stage race. So I'm sure you will be able to!

    Yes ... yes ... I've heard it's true. But 90% of the guys I know that have recently moved up hold their own or even find themselved winning 3 races. This led to my hypothesis that upgrade rules from 4 --> 3 are in fact too stringent. Case in point, if you do 10 USCF races per year (which is a decent number in my region) you've got to average 5th place in every race. I won a total of 1 cat 4 race on my way up and had to scrape by with top fives in the rest of my races to get enough points. This on a ~7 race per year schedule. I race ~40 times per year, but the vast majority are club races.

    Congrats. Cat 3 is harder, but it is also much more fun. Much more tactical racing, in my experience.

    Congratulations! Have fun in the threes.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.
