was chilling at 24 in my small ring this morning on my commute
So you were really spinning out your small ring hmmm!

Remember that average speed means nothing in a criterium. I can ride with cat 2 - 3 guys on Sundays rides too in a paceline. I realize that many of them are just riding tempo and if they wanted to lay down the hammer it may be over.

Criteriums are about accelerating, Road races are more about climbing and constant speeds. Just because you can hold 24 - 27 in a paceline does not mean you will be suscessful in criteriums.

Do not worry about getting dropped, we all get dropped. Use them to work on your speed skills, etc. The more you do the better you will get.
Just your average club rider... :)
