I entered and got into the Vets national road race championships, so far so good.
However entry was first come first served. Now a lot of the old guard are up in arms because they've not got in. And a fair few are complaining that riders like myself have no place in a championship, and that entry should be based on 'quality', the vets league doesn't work on points like the BC.
I was looking forward to this, but now it feels like I've gate crashed a party or poo'd on their lawn.
The child in me says I won't bother hosting a road race of this stature ever again, and if they have a gripe, try orgainising more open road races like my little outfit.
FTR, I'm what you might call cannon fodder. I'm in the 50-55 age group (53) I finish about 10th in most crits, I finished 4th over 50 in the Central cyclo cross league and 19th overall in the Vets national CX.
Ride or pull and let better riders through?
