I raced last night (afternoon 6.30/7.30 crit) and was soundly beaten by two guys (triathletes) who I ride with in training who are good strong young riders.
Problem is one has never raced at my club so he was allowed to 'go around' in my (E) grade.
He won as I new he would and the other came second as I new he would both by a street.
I'm dark on both of them as I feel they took an unfair advantage.
I know it's not for a sheep station (cattle ranch) but I've worked hard in a grade where I've improved to the point that I can now contest the sprint with genuine like graded participants and then to get ripped off by these impostors has left a sour taste.
Am I being too competitive?
I can't wait till I see them next Saturday at training, I'll give them a good serve.
