    Same as last year: survive and not get lapped. Sometimes low expectations are entirely reasonable.

    #1 goal was to upgrade to the 3s (ok, not a very high goal, I admit). . With a victory over the weekend I have enough points to upgrade, so now I need a new goal.

    Hmm, this thread seems familiar. Oh yeah, it was done in the road racing forum...

    Looks like being competitive in 3s is my next goal. I will have to gain 20W FTP or lose 4kg for my other goal...

    I know, I didn't mean it is a "you shouldn't have done this thread" admonishment. More of a realization as I was writing that I had already thought up some goals, so I went and found the thread...

    That is if I have the cajones to actually try racing out. I may just need to stop talking about it, get my license, and register for a race.

    Keep up with cat3s on the weekend hill climb. That's a REALLY tough task for me - right now, I can barely hang with good 4s on the weekend climbs, but that's not so bad I guess considering I'm still a relative noob on the bike.

    Good 4s will usually climb faster than the slower 3s.
