Congrats, DrPete, on the upgrade!

NOTE: I'm posting this publicly rather than as a private message because I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been following DrPete's race reports with great interest.

Since my goal for my first year of racing next year is to upgrade to Cat4 legitimately rather than with 10 DNFs, I have really enjoyed hearing all of the details about DrPete's races regardless of the outcome. Your story about sprinting to the finish one lap too soon was going through my mind last night during my second race!

Anyway, congrats. I can't wait to hear about your journey from Cat4 to Cat3 next year!!

I know Pete put in for his upgrade but actually I don't think that Pete has heard back yet. He PMed me yesterday to that effect.

You may find my name missing from the confirmed rider list of the 5's... Oh yeah, I'm a 4 now. Let the floggings begin.

I think I read in this thread that he'd officially received his upgrade.

Ah, well I thought we would get it based on what he told me, and I see from that other thread he did get it. Cool beans.
