Wanted to see what folks perspectives are on similarities and differences between Cat 3 vs 35+ 1-3 for criterium racing.
I’m a 38 yo cat 3 who used to race a lot of crits about 10 years ago.
I basically just kept my license so I’m still a three but I’m trying to get back into racing crits again.
What do folks think about which category would be better to get back into racing again? Cat 3 or Masters? For context I’ve never raced Masters before but plenty of cat 3 races.
My uneducated observation is that masters will be faster and harder to get a result but safer?
