Congrats. Obviously you weren't one of those hand-wringers like me who bombarded the forums with the endless "should I cat up?" threads.

Hey, I have a random question... is it supposed to be just 10 starts, or do they have to be mass race stars... ie do TTs count?

its is suppose to be 10 mass starts, so that way you don't do 10 TT's and do your first crit race in 4's

Why the hate? He felt like he could compete in the fours and he catted up, apparently the officials thought he could handle the fours too.

I don't think there is any hate, I think its in reference to post #4.

Yea, well in Wisconsin every race is 4/5 so its not really a jump. But now I can get upgrade points instead of just starting. And I dont feel like a noob anymore
