Background would be a little helpful I guess: I am basically the manager, captain and treasurer of my team right now. I really like the riding partners and sort of feel like the team is "my baby" since I was the one who really got it off the ground, got sponsors, sunk my own time and money into it, recruited riders, etc. but my problem is that now as a Cat 3 I am alone. None of my teammates have made the move from 4 to 3, many of them are scared, some are not confident in their own abilities, etc. But for me it has been hard racing alone in the 3s feeling like the sole racer out there and I really WANT to ride with a team, I don't like feeling the onus is always on me to win it.
After the stage yesterday there was talk and rumors that got passed down to me from one of the other local teams that they were thinking about trying to recruit me. Honestly this isn't that new as I have had a few other friends/teams (basically one in the same here) give me hints that they would allow me to join their team should I desire.
What kills me is that I really have trouble with the idea of just pulling a cut and run on my current team. Honestly I would almost love to do both, race with another team but still be able to manage my team. While I realize that that is entirely possible (Although it may become a logistics nightmare) I would also like the ability to still race with my former teammates every now and then. Obviously if both teams were in a race I would be forced to choose in which case I would have to put the new team first which I am fine with. Is that "bad form" to do that? Race with two teams?
My question (TL;DR): Has anyone had experience with trying to be on two teams at once? How did you manage it?
