Trust me, I run 2/3 because they expect that if you've been entering races for this long you surely MUST be faster than beginners. Hah, incorrect assumption of epic proportion by USAC and promoters. So, yeah, I keep being denied downgrades to 3/4. Honestly there is no reason why most guys should not be sport class/CAT2 and the rules do suggest you should upgrade yourself after a few races. I dislike sandbaggers as much as dopers. I'll be doing CAT3 CX this fall, which should be interesting because I'm a mid pack CAT4 on good days. :-)

Yea, I've always loved that rule. Here, you've done 10 races so we're upgrading you.

Let me know if you're up this way for any of the CX races.

I think the problem is that tons of people sand bag their asses off out here.

I also think it's funny everybody is talking about racing in this thread.

Hey, I never brought up racing but now that its on the table. Yes I raced. But one man ended my career. After being lapped by Levi Leipheimer during a crit, I decided it was time I simply become a recreational rider. I should note he lapped the entire field not just me that day.

Well, that derailed quickly. For those who ride at the slow level, thanks for posting up. I guess we can PM about a time to go.
