    The Op had too few races to upgrade out of Cat 5 at the end of last season, which tells a lot.

    To Answer the question, if this hAsn't already been said in the 5 pages, you can open space without any pushiing.

    Find a gap nd fill it. If you have your front wheel in front, you can gradually move over, and the other rider will typically let you
    In. If not be patient, and find some who gives you enough gap to exploit.

    Just riding close to the side will result in many 4's just giving you the wheel.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Dear gsteinb,

    You have received an infraction at Bike Forums.

    Reason: Insulted Other Member(s)
    -------
    Hello gsteinb;

    You have been issued an infraction for your post here.

    As per the Forum Guidelines:

    Harassment occurs when a member insults, attacks, and denigrates another member at any time. We have zero tolerance for taking an argument about a any topic to a personal level. For instance, the use of terms such as "idiot, moron, stupid" and other derogatory terms constitutes harassment. The idea is to make this a pleasant environment to discuss cycling, not a schoolyard, or name-calling and rock-throwing festival. Repeated critical and sharply negative posts toward a forum member can also constitute harassment. This applies to all content submitted by users including posts, avatars and signatures.

    Personal attacks and inflammatory behavior will not be tolerated.

    Respect the forum staff. We're not here to make life harder to anyone. Any decision taken by the administrators and moderators is final and must be respected.

    Sincerely;
    botto
    Forum Poster.

    I have had people hit my helmet, smash my bars, elbows, knees, hook me with their bars, try to catch brake levers, etc.
    Wow, these people think of the craziest things! Very creative... But why would you even think of that!? If someone actually succeeded in that move, the rider, and everyone behind the rider is going head over heels! And instead of pulling someones helmet (lol) it would make new sense to grab their seat bag/post like in friendly group rides

    Period.
    Well put. People who try being aggressive like red helmet guy in the video are usually the ones who end up on the ground and taking others with them.

    can we make a forum rule that any reference to a frame pump in the spokes is an automatic ban?

    Sure, put it in with the rule prohibiting penny-farthings larger than 72 inches... who carries a frame pump in a race any more?

    I remember someone trying to put his pump in another guy's wheel in a road race in Canada. Good thing he missed.
