That doesn't help. This year i'm racing Club Level twice a week, State Open level bi-monthly, and this year racing at the World Masters Games.
Cycling is vastly more accessable to the 'world' than Golf is.
So having the same equipment across all three levels, means that i've got to abide by the lowest common demoninator. Most people at Track on Tuesday night do very similar circuits to me in terms of events entered.
Yes but except for the world masters its still all "club" level stuff, cyclings interpretation to the word "open" is a bit weird because we can have open E grade . True open events in other sports are "open" to all comers and are not graded.
