So, after about a week's worth of debating and some serious thinking it over, I've decided to call an early end to my priority race season. This week's 40km TT and then my circuit race on the 7th of October will be it for me this year.
I was planning to make some races in November a priority. However, since of none of these races in Japan are going to really do me a lick of good for upgrade points, there's no sense in keeping "in taper" for a month while my CTL stagnates and/or drops significantly by the end of November. So, instead I'm looking at the spring and starting to plan my spring events. Back to base training for me.
Looks like the first big race for the spring will be Jefferson Cup for me. Looks like a great course and much more my style than all the crits that fill up Feb/March in DC.
Doesn't even really look like anything to do that would get me upgrade points in Feb/March until then.
It's starting to get kinda fun looking at the MABRA racing. Also looking at the upstate NY racing so I have a reason to go visit my folks in the Adirondacks through the summer.
