First of all, wooooooooohooooooo!
Got enough points to upgrade from Cat 4 to Cat 3, if my math and the rule book are both correct!
5 to 3 season with only a few races as a 4 though. Hence my questioning. I did good on mixed Cat 3/4 races and won a big one and placed 2nd and 4th on a couple others, including 2nd on a large field crit. This weekend I needed 3 points and got 5th on a 50+ Cat3/4 RR (5 points). That's about all my experience...
I can sprint, I can climb, I can handle my bike and want to get away from some of the 4s, I race smart and have been strong - how humble, no? But I also know I lack racing experience in terms of breaking away and tactics on longer races.
I know many will say I should race more as a 4, but I feel that I am more likely to get that experience by going ahead and upgrading.
Also, another good result would put me into mandatory upgrade I guess.
Anyway, comments please. Thx!
