I'm with Machka on this one, although race entry fees in the U.S. are a bit steeper than $5 a pop (more like $17 a race here in Ohio)! I'm a total nobody, and I've stomped guys on bike 4 times more expensive than mine. I've been stomped by some old dude on an ancient, poorly maintained bike of unknown lineage.

At the end of the day, a bike is worth no more than the rider sitting on it, performance-wise....
