At what point do you think you can become competitive?
i.e. local XC race's
I' used to be fast then I had a 8 month gap in riding, after todays ride round Sherwood pines and smashing a few PB's, I got wondering how close I am to being competitive, Now I'm not saying for one second that I'm at that stage yet but we have to have aspirations right?!
I'm averaging a top 10-25% on Strava segment tables,
Is this anywhere near good?
The majority of my rides are spent lone riding but the occasional weekends friends (some of which who are a little faster),So I have little to compare to when actually out, hence the use of Strava,
I'm sure with coaching on skills and practice I could push myself much further.
Or am I just barking up the wrong tree and slow down to enjoy the scenery?!
