Become a consistent Cat 3 racer- Not so much. Although I did feel incredibly competitive at the Focus Crit. I need to do more Cat 3 races.
Place on the Podium at VOS- Well, I was painfully close to being on the podium- four stinking seconds.
Break the State Time Trial record of 27:55- That definitely didn't happen, but the course was definitely slower than Hines Park. This was an unrealistic goal.
So here are my goals for 2011.
Become competitive in the Cat 3 field- I'm going to have Stephen, Brian, and Matt as backup, so it will be very fun.
Reach the top quartile at Camp- This is the main objective. Camp will open up many opportunities if I perform well. The most obvious opportunity is Abitibi (If I finish in the top 5).
Podium at Mount Graham- In the Cat 3s, of course. It would probably take a time in the mid 1:30s, but it's very doable.
Those are my racing goals (I'll keep the training goals top secret). There are going to be lots of highs and lows this year. So once again, I'll make that promise to not overly obsess about the bike, and to keep God first.
For Arizona riders, the Avondale Crit is in 23 days. Game on.
