That was my thought. When I raced the huge cat 5 races at Prospect Park, Brooklyn many decades ago, it's just a cluster futz of newbies going hard and not understanding anything. There were no teams, as it were. I only ran into this when I raced in New Mexico, where a racing team from the US Air Force had a group of Cat 5 guy's who actually worked as a team. I hung on to them best I could once I realized they were working together.
