In my experience, teams are way over-rated and over-hyped, especially at "lower" levels. People are way too concerned with having some team jersey when they race. If you really get into upper level (cat 1 and 2) racing, then maybe I can see the importance of a GOOD team, but for the general racer the only benefit of being a team member is training, and if you're deligent you can train just as well on your own, with a few group rides scattered in there. Don't be ashamed of racing unatached with a generic color jersey. If anything show all those teamers up by beating their butts.
