Disregard P123 comment...they have a 2/3. The P123 I was thinking of is at the Memorial Day Crit in Morgan Hill...I'll just heckle.

Everyone in the south bay should come out to one of these SJBC training crits!
San Jose Bicycle Club : : 2014 Twilight Crits
Every Tuesday, $15. Races go from 6:30 to sunset - so they get longer as we get into summer, up to 1hr 45, ending at about 1 hour. Good training.
Very low key, pretty small fields (at least in the A's), maybe 25-30 at most. Need moar!
$15/night and I can't ride my trike or effin' tall bike?
But really...for the fee, do they close the road? Prizes?
We've got a semi-formal Wednesday night up here, not entry fee, sprint points for prizes and such. Points are all marked and finishing order is on the honor system or determined by the lead group.
Wednesday Night Race Rides - Folsom Bike & Town Center Bike and Tri
Would love to do morning ride + noon ride + twilight crit every Tuesday until I get a job; that would be epic! Unfortunately south SJ is a bit far to ride to from Mountain View and my wife usually takes the car on Tuesday nights.
Prizes are minimal, primes sometimes and a prize for 1st. I won some Hammer chamois cream, and some water bottles so far. But if you're going there for prizes you should probably go somewhere else.
The road is not closed, but there is minimal traffic there. Only tricky part about the traffic is turn 2 at the bottom of a downhill - it has a stoplight, so they put a person down there to hit the walk signal for us or let us know if cars or coming. Sometimes we have to neutralize if there are cars coming.
So it's not perfect, but it gets the job done - training!
2014 NCNCA Points Series - Team Category Points
Our team is 3rd in p12 (behind ****ing Mikes and Squadra, surprise surprise), 1st in 3s, 1st in 4s, and 11th in 35+ (I will fix this next year)
Interesting you have a Squadra out there. We have a Super Squadra
Problem...I realize I signed up for a Cat 4 race this Saturday since the team wanted a "team showing". Can I either a) still race (I'd just try to leverage someone into a good spot) or b) transfer my $$ to a different cat?Request was approved on 2014-05-22 12:14

Good Luck Racing,

You definitely can't race in the 4's unless you downgrade or it's a 3/4's race, and you can just transfer your registration to the cat 3 race. Write the promoter and let them know you upgraded, they have probably dealt with this before.
Congrats on the upgrade!!
Whatever you're doing seems to be working!
One of the hardest parts about upgrading losing the confidence you built up in your last category. It can count for almost as much as fitness, assuming you're meeting the minimum requirements there.
