So, I just emailed both sanctioning bodies here in Colorado to see if I can get an upgrade in time to race the Gila as a 2. I'm a little frustrated though after learning this weekend that Boulder Roubaix, and none of the THF races for that matter, won't count towards upgrade points. I mean, it's not a huge deal, but the Stazio races, and Roubaix have been well known, popular races around here for some time, so I'll ride them either way, but why should my performances there not reflect the way I'm riding. I understand that the promoters kept them unsanctioned to keep entries down, but all this fighting between USCF, ACA, and now a third party here in Colorado ends up making it harder on us, the riders, when really it's just a political issue. Anyway, I'm not going to bitch and moan about it, I just hope I get my upgrade. Anyway, cross your fingers for me and maybe I'll get this ok to race the big guys.
