    doesn't everyone just get called into a meeting with their teams management and director sport if and get handed their schedule for the year?

    i assumed that's the way it works for everybody in the racing forum.

    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    For what it's worth, I'm making Nevada City an A race this year. Have absolutely no chance, in fact I'll have to be in the shape of my life just to not be dropped ignominiously. But it's an awesome race, and that's as good a reason as anything else.

    I've learned that cyclists are very much like crack addicts who will register for any race ... no matter what.

    We had a crit last year on a course that everyone complained loudly about. It was horribly dangerous. Crashes in every field. People were breaking wheels, handlebars, saddle posts, etc. There were a million flat tires. Entry fees were +$50.
    It was in a remote resort town requiring +4 hours driving where the cheap hotels start at $250 per night.
    It's an expensive weekend.

    But when I asked guys if they were going back next year, and they all said yes.

    I don't need to race every weekend at this point in my life. I pick and choose based on the following:
    - fun course (not an industrial complex)
    - decent size fields
    - can I do the Trifecta? Are the 45+ and 35+ and Pro-1-2 races near each other on the schedule?
    - are there decent golf courses nearby?
    - is there water nearby to take my paddle board?

    Only race if...
    There is a chance of winning OR it is good training/learning.

    Then...
    Cost (money and time)
    Does it help the team
    Who is watching
    How much money / is it any fun

    The money/fun thing is a race by race thing.
