    What's your racing schedule?

    I'm planning on doing:

    Mutual of Enumclaw Stage Race

    Tour of Walla Walla

    Rapha Pacific Northwest Junior Stage Race

    Victoria International Cycling Festival

    Plus a bunch of general local racing of various sizes, plus some other races if I can qualify for Cycling BC/Canada's support.

    How about you?

    I only aim to compete in the local track league every Wednesday, or atleast when ever possible.
    And to enter as many circuit races as I can possibly enter realistically (money/travel).
    I want to win atleast one track event, I've been training with some of the guys I'll race, and I think it's even ground!

    My first year racing, epic fail in first and only this year a couple weeks ago but it's all learning! My goal is to hit a top 10 and podium finish this year, and hopefully get into a successful breakaway (not necessarily a winning one, but one that puts in a lot of damage physically, mentally, and tactically into the field). I have a few races each month, going to try and get in as many as I can though.

    Ps. Good luck to you all!

    Haha it's going to take a little working of the system. I got my Cat. 3 through a discretionary upgrade, and I need to make cat.2 to be eligible for some stuff. So it's going to be exciting. I've got some points, but I may have to ask for another discretion upgrade, or just some points to put me over the edge for Pan-am Trials.

    i think you should just be able to get the points. i had 31 in about 3 months (i think the new rule is 3o right?).

    I can, but I need the upgrade for the beginning of june. My plan is to basically demonstrate that I'm on my way there, get a temporary cat.2, qualify, and then go back to three and get the rest of my poins.

    Carl Dolan was today
    Either Rock Lititz or Marlton GP on the 28th
    Bunny Hop Crit
    Possibly Smoketown Airport crit
    Kelly Cup
    Grandview Grand Prix
    Riverton Criterium (if I can get to Cat 4 by then) or Air Force Classic if not
    Tyson's Corner Circuit (if they actually run it this year)
    Giro di Coppi

    Sprinkle in Greenbelt park crits as much as I can get down there and that'll probably be my schedule through the middle of july.
    This is all Cat. 5 stuff, not quite as advanced as you guys.

    Thanks, I have been self-training since I stopped swimming in February and it is incredibly enjoyable. I met some of the other juniors in my region yesterday who were all really nice guys. And good luck to you, I wish we had a juniors stage race in my area.
