Just a little warning: I had a bad experience today in the “Bolt Race team presents BRT Masters Training Race”.
The idea of this ride is to have people race in category along their age group: all male below 50 are cat A (that sounds like a large group), all 50-60 cat B etc. But nobody reads the description before the race so you end up racing with a peloton full of riders in cats C and B (supposedly grandpa’s). This is annoying because age groups start at different times and as a result, I as one of the only 4 A riders had to do 45 km on my own. If I want to do a 45 km individual time trial, I’ll sign up for one, thank you.
Race organizers should make this clearer: people don’t read the small letters and if everyone signs up wrong it’s probably not only their mistake. This way it is just no fun.
