Cascade Classic

Has anyone raced the Cascade Classic as a Cat 4? What is it like? I think I would be outclassed but it might be a good learning experience. As I understand, there is a fair amount of climbing. What would be the necessary watts per kg to be competitive in the climbs?

Edit: I'm currently at 4.2watts per kg at LT

If you have the shorter numbers to respond to attacks, and the endurance for the RR. I wouldn't worry about the 4's with that kind of w/kg.

I am lower than that (~3.8-4.0, no powertap) and have not too much trouble in the 3's on big climbs.
