I am debating when I should submit my upgrade. I have right at the required number of points. I have been a Cat3 for 2 years and nearly had the points needed at the end of 2007. Then my racing went to the pot last year and I didn't gain very many, and the ones I had expired. Not this weekend but the weekend after is the State Crit and while I would stand a very good chance at getting it in Cat3, it really wouldn't benefit me any if I upgrade right after.
I do not have a team. I have been racing unattached all year. I tried to get hooked up but nothing ever worked out. I already have experience in the pro/1/2 field as a 3, for the first time in July 2007 and many more times after that. I also never finished last so that's a plus. I would say the right thing for me to do is to go ahead and upgrade, because me racing with the 3's is like a grown man taking candy from a baby. But as a 2 I will be getting molested on a regular basis.
