I once asked a similar question to a veteran racer and got this answer: A racer is someone who can ride for several hours at 20+ mph. He is also someone who can take it up to just under 30 mph for a short period, and then go back to 20 mph to recover.

One more thing, if you're going to race, try to get out of Cat 5 as quick as you can. There are ton of crashes due to the inexperience of the racers. If you win a Cat 5 race, see if you can move up. If you race a year at Cat 5, move up to Cat 4.
