That's the thing - I wouldn't look for an upgrade until I stop getting dropped, and then, at this age, I'd go straight to Masters, which, while it is sometimes MORE competitive than Cat 4, it's usually a group of better riders altogether (i.e., more predictable, safer, etc.) - at least from what I've seen as a moto official and participant/spectator over the course of the last three seasons.

Racing is fun, even if you don't get a podium. Just being in a peloton is a unique thrill, and it's something I want to get better at; I believe it's something I may actually be suited for, late as I may be coming to it. I just wonder sometimes if I'm deluded.
