Ok guys...third crit done. Cat 5. I need some suggestions for setting some intermediate goals. Obviously winning is the main goal. Not sure if I am there yet.
Some goals which have been attained are:
Not getting dropped or lapped by the pack
Finishing with the main pack. This week I was mid pack most of the race and feeling ok with 2 laps to go. I kind of slowed a little just to merely observed what was going on as we completed final two laps. Finished with main pack with about 2-3 guys behind me. A small handful of lapped riders also pulled out/pulled themselves. Satisfied with result but ready to bump it up a little.
Should I ? :
try and win a prime (for sake of getting off the front)?
top 10 finish?
Attempt a break?
Other suggestions or ideas of what you did moving up through the ranks as a 5?
