    Back to back x5 would be a pretty epic showing. Being a 45+ 3 must be like going to a buffet for race selection

    I'll be there to heckle. If I turn in my upgrade form I could even join you in the P123. Looks like we may actually have a team showing in the 4s, so I may hold off to join in the effort.

    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.

    Yeah. I can get beat by a teenager in the morning and then by his dad in the afternoon.

    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.

    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.

    I don't organize it, not a member of their club, but will take what I can get. This for sure beats the south bay group rides in terms of training I think.

    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!

    Aaron from my old team (Pinnacle) does the Noon Alviso crit plus this SJBC crit on Tuesdays, and seems to do well in both.

    In fact he won it last night, the bastid!

    Dunno.

    B's is the biggest group, C's are split separately. I'd start in the C's and see how it goes. Or start with the B's, and if you get dropped you can ride with the C's. If you still get dropped you can sit out a lap and get back in, just don't contest the sprints.

    Hey at least Marc Pro is beating the Goliath of Mike's Bikes in the 1/2's.. then again Marc Pro has swelled to Goliath proportions this year as it is.

    Also, I hope you mean you will help fix us being behind in the 1/2's next year, not the 35+!!

    re: 4->3

    Request was approved on 2014-05-22 12:14

    USAC Upgrade Letter

    Congratulations!

    We no longer are sending out the small upgrade stickers. Please simply print this email out and carry it with you as proof of your upgrade.

    Good Luck Racing,
    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?

    b)

    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!!

    Thanks much. I figured it'd be an easy swap to a diff. cat.

    Now, I think I may need to actually start training.

    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.
