    a few minutes
    couple times

    Do not overdress. And if you have the skills, put on layers that you can discard as needed.
    Race hard and you'll never know it's 45 and rain.

    You'll be fine when upgrade time comes. Just add that race in and explain situation.

    And a hard way to learn the craft.
    The other rider may have been taking a bad line, but this situation is pretty normal and no big deal as you go up the categories....

    Which is exactly what elite men do and the point I've been making for years.
    It takes women to get other women involved.

    Bike racing is about trying to win.
    Attacking wins races.
    Only one guy gets to win a bunch sprint; and it's probably not you.

    Exactly

    Attack at every chance you get, but mostly just as another break is being caught (counter-attacking).

    OP - don't ask. just do! After 100 races, come ask if you're still confused.

    As a former board member on the local association for USAC, I can tell you what does NOT work for attracting more women:
