I don't do any mountain bike racing, but I love it recreationally. This is only my second year road racing (1st full year, started at the end of last season) so I too am a Cat 5. I have a bunch of buddies I ride with that are Cat 3's and 1 that is a Cat 2 so they really push me to do better, plus they give me a lot of good advice. Strategy in racing is unbelievable. I enjoy it, so I plan to keep at it and see how far I can get.
