Officially a Cat3
I've been doing a little social racing and talked to a few informed sources and figured that the Cat 4 races would be ok and probably fun since I'd do well, but the consensus was that Cat 3 races are where I should really be for CX. So I did a little research and it seems that if you are a Cat 1 XC racer then you can upgrade your CX cat to match or something like that. So I figured that I'd take the jump and submit my request to USAC and see if they'd actually approve me(Since they shot me down for my road upgrade). Well in probably an hour or less I received a notification that I have officially been upgraded to a Cat3 CX racer and will have a slightly longer race and a more competitive field. Sounds like fun to me. Now if I can only figure out how to get over these darn barriers smoothly.
