    I think a coach for a new Cat5 is fine, but should not be a priority. If you are someone who takes direction well and learns fast, it might be a good idea. If you are someone that likes to experience things for yourself first and focus on improvement once you have an idea what you'll need, then race for a bit before employing a coach. Cat5 isn't about results, anyway.
    So true.
    Being new to cycling (8months) for me I would like to experience cycling on my own and follow some simple beginer training regiment before hiring a coach. After my first crit in May 14' I will definately know if I want/need one or not. Might be someone in this forum.

    yeah, you're in basye, maybe you can hook up with joe dombrowski and ben king when they're in town. ha, ha.

    check out the haymarket winter bike league, it's a hammerfest ride full of good racers, but you need to be comfortable on gravel and know your way around for when you get dropped.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I looked them up, seems like they have a no drop ride this upcoming Sunday all on road though. it's an hour and a half drive but going to see if the wife will give permission to go (Sunday is our only day together since I work so much in the winter)! I'll see if I can hang on.
