My hometown is having their annual criterium in a week or two, but I've never raced before, so I'm not exactly sure how I would place. The Cat4/5 race takes place on a 0.9 mile loop with 15 laps; altogether 13.5 miles. I don't have any wattage data or past results, but every Saturday I do a 45-mile group ride (20+ guys) averaging 23-24 mph with regular accelerations of 28-30. I recently averaged 23.5 mph on a 20-mile leg of a triathlon, and usually can do solo training rides (w/o aerobars) at 20-21 mph for 30-40 miles. I've can do individual sprints up to 32mph. Could I hold my own in the race? If so, do I have to register with the USCF? Thanks in advance.
