So where do we go? What do we do? I have never raced at the high level of the sport. I am only a cat 3 who hopes to one day move up and be a very good racer. But I have teammates who could do some pretty special things, and I would like this team to help make that happen. There is a lot that has to happen however, and I'm not really sure how long it will take to get there, but I just have to take it one step at a time.
Team guys have already started to target races like Joe Martin, Tour de Gila, Tulsa Tough, Dairyland, MoPRO, U23 Nationals, Master's Nationals, and others. These would all be big national and regional races, and a big jump from the local races we do every weekend. The great thing about racing locally in St Louis however, is the quality of the guys we have here. We have a good number of races throughout the year, and the guys here really seem to be getting really good. I heard often this last season how St Louis is considered a great crit racing scene around the midwest.
My dream for the team is to just keep getting stronger, and continue to race like we did this whole season, as a team. To move up into the higher ranks of USA cycling and start to be known on the regional level, and maybe someday the national level. At this point we are having a blast though, and the journey is the best part.
