I hate to even post this, but I need the opinions. I started racing around 10 months ago. I did 3 citizen's class races last year, 11 collegiate D races this spring, and some spring cat 5 or 4/5 races. I think I've got a total of19 or 20 entries, but I'm not even in the pack all the time. I got 2nd in a citizen's race, pointed 2 or 3 times in collegiate, and a 12th place in a cat 5. I always hear to cat up asap, but do I fall under this rule with all the poor finishes I've racked up? My season is nearly over, but I sure do think I need more time before going to 4. I don't think college C is even an option. Am I an exception to the rule, or is it time to HTFU and apply to be 4/d?
