That's it. Pretty much just wanted to share and brag! Pumped!
Last year I was a 5, and when I was up for my 3 upgrade after a month in 4, it was scary and a big leap. I posted here and you guys told me to go for it, and not wait!
I'm glad I did! I raced well all season, got consistent good results, won the state crit, learned a lot of tactics racing with my awesome teammates, traveled, and now am a 2!
Oh, I also had 6 crashes. But almost all not racing (went down twice on a crit but those weren't so bad). The other crashes were just riding. A couple solo, and a couple real bad ones on group rides. One broke my Hi Mod Evo (dude ate it in front of me). And the other was this Tuesday, sprinting all out at the end of a fast paceline ride with a stretched chain something snapped and I had an "I believe I can fly" moment. Just need to work on the landing. I was doing about 37, did a couple front flips and dislocated my shoulder. But I'm totally fine and already rode yesterday.
So yeah all good news!
Thanks for reading.
