Just a heads up to any Cat 5s older than juniors who may be wanting to ride in the McLane Crit or road race this year. There are no races for Cat 5s older than 18 to ride in at the McLane Pacific events this year. If you are currently a Cat 5 and you want to ride at McLane you need to earn your Cat 4 upgrade before the race. In order to upgrade you are going to have to meet the upgrade requirements ( ie 10 mass start races worth of experience). By attending all of the Early Bird training races even a brand new Cat 5 can earn an upgrade to Cat 4.
The details of the McLane races can be found at
