This is my first post in the 33! I just signed up today for my first cat 5 criterium . Not looking for advice or anything (If you'd like to provide some by all means go ahead) but just wanting to express my feelings of excitement, fear and nervousness. I have been riding for about a year now but officially training with the help of another forum member for about 2 months now and I've advanced more in those two months than the other 10.
I am actually about to have an intense few weeks, in a good way. Bought a power meter and should be getting it in a few days. Have a century this coming saturday, the criterium the next saturday and a 3 gap ride the sunday after the crit. I couldn't be happier right now . I am wearing my speedsuit for the first time since I bought it about a month back this saturday because finally I feel like I can fit in it without looking like the michellin man.
Wish me luck
