race goals

I race wisport in wisconsin. Generally get 100 -150 people at these races. Both TT and road races from 25 to 50 miles.
in our wisport citizen race series I have three goals for this year.
1. After last year I picked a person I thought was some percentage better than me and my goal is to beat him. Have beat him 3 out of 4 races, he beat me last Sat by .01 seconds in the sprint.
2. Win the Cruiser division. (over 200 LBS). I am 218 trying like hell to make just 200. I think I am running a close second right now. Hard to tell because of how this is scored as the year progresses.
3. Beat all the girls. So far have finnished before any of the women partisipants.
having a great time!

Keep updating that list.

But keep the last line in there somewhere always.

my goal is to win a medal. i think they give them out to the top 10 in the cat 5 races here. modest, yet for me very challenging.

My goal is different for each race I enter depending on what priority is (A/B/C or training). My main goals are to place top 10 and perferably 5 at the Domingious hills crit this month (A priority), upgrade to cat 4 at the beginning of next year and to stay with the pack in the 4/5 races that I do this season.

Individual race goals include breaking away, winning a prime, etc.

My real goal is the be cat 1 some day and compete in some of the really big stage races in the US... (or as high as my body will take me...)
Just your average club rider... :)
