Here is a thought......
coming from a woman cat 2 master (frequent) racer
Dear Road Race Promoter,
women pro 12
master women 35+ 123
master women 35+ 4/women 4
Is there a promoter willing to change the women 35+
field into a women 35+123 field. And let the master
women 35+ cat 4 race with the elite 4's and picked separately.
This way master women can competitively race with their competitors
with similar skilled levels.
If the master women 35+ 123 field was offered consistently, I bet
there would be many takers.
Can ya give it a try?
