Say hello to the new Cat3...

As of the Cape Fear Road Race I had enough points to request a Cat3 upgrade which left me with mixed feelings. On the one hand I definitely feel like my results since March have shown that I'm able to hold my own against the 4/5 fields but on the other hand upgrading to Cat3 likely means I'll spend some time being pack fodder.

In the end I decided to go ahead and put in my upgrade request which was accepted. Now I just need to train hard and see how I do. Since I'm now able to ride in Masters events I may do so but the top 10 guys in those fields are really good riders, so it may be 2008 or even 2009 before I'm competitive--if ever.

Oh well, upgrading will help keep my motivation from stagnating.
