5 to 4

I made my request to upgrade from a Cat 5 road racer to 4. Even though I suck it was still time. 5’s are meant to allow you to get the lay of the land – to learn what is involved in racing and how to race safely with others…not as a development category.

I don’t feel ready, but the TT results from Sunday have helped show me that I am. I basically came out with a 3.3 w/kg functional threshold power (ftp) which puts me about mid level Cat 4 on Coggan’s chart. I will post about the TT later. As it is let’s hope I get the upgrade. Don’t know if I officially have all of the starts required, but I just threw all of the events I have done on there. Big fields. Competitive. Meh…we’ll see.
