watching one of the cat1,2 races, I think I MIGHT be able to hang on the flats, but damn, they climb so fast! I did this crit in chapel hill (meadowmont) in may that had these 2 hills that were probably >12% gradient for about 15 pedal strokes, and I just stood to get over them, otherwise I wouldve had to drop to the small ring every lap to sit and spin. the cat 1,2 field was big ringin' it at around 20-25 mph on those hills! unbeleivable.
