Movin' On Up...
Well, I'm a moving on up! I got confirmation from our local USAC representative that my upgrade to Cat4 has been approved! I was honestly quite surprised that the upgrade came that easy! I suspected that I would at least have to get a few more races under my belt. Regardless, I look forward to racing in the 4's and hopefully moving up into the 3's by the end of the season. It's going to take a lot of work and will definitely be a learning process.
Also worth a mention was my commute yesterday. On my ride home, the tornado sirens were blaring on campus as a storm was about to shake the town. About a mile from my place, the rain started coming down and the wind was so ridiculous I could hardly keep the bike stable! I've rode in all kinds of weather and I'm no amateur to storms but this was the worst ride in a storm that I've ever had! I felt really happy to be home and immediately hunkered down with the cat and some flashlights!
What will today bring?
