I’m hoping to hit both because I’ve always done ok in stage races with some climbing like Cascade and Mt Hood. But I could also blow up well before then.
I know my fitness ceiling can’t be too much further out given it’s my first year back. Just hoping to race a fair bit and shut it down when I hit it. Maybe regroup for some cx and try to do the same next year.
I’ve had my points for cat2 within a season of racing from cat4 a couple times in the past and never upgraded due to more kids, new job, moving, etc. Figure getting there before I’m 40 seems like a good goal…
Good luck with your season.
