Cat 5 races are straight up intervals, get used to the yoyo for the first 15 mins and than it will level off which is also when it gets dangerous and riders let the guard down and overlap wheels. Last few laps of the race are always as fast as the first few. But it's only 25-30min long so survive, protect you wheel and move up when you can. Don't be on the front of the pack for hero points unless you're working with your team. Let the others do the work, save your energy for the yoyo, the intervals/sprint needed after a crash happens and the last sprint.
Rule #10 // It never gets easier, you just go faster.
