Dilemma...or not?

Everything is pretty much packed up and ready to go. I still haven't registered for the race..and now I'm wondering what I'm thinking! Not about racing..no, I am definitely racing.

The NORBA National Championship category is Pro Open Women..and I hear the competition is stacked this year. Then there is also the "regular" 24-9 mile race that has a Solo Women and a Solo Women SS class. So.....which do I enter? Do I enter Nationals to fight for the last spot on the podium (which is NOT by any means going to be easy with the competition and combined with the fact that I am choosing to race with one gear)...or do I enter the "regular" race in the SS category...and have a much better chance of the podium?

Do I really care? I tend to think that SS doesn't need it's own category, I've seem to do just fine on it racing in the Womens Open in general. However, all the top 24 hour racers in the country are coming out for this one.

I guess I have a long drive and several days to mull it over :)

That's a tough call. I race SS when there is a class for it, but if I were going that far to race where Nationals were being held I'd have a hard time not stepping up and racing the bigs.
Otherwise it's just another 24 hour race (there's lots of those out there).

Don't know what to tell you...but I'm sure whichever choice you make, you'll have a great race. Good luck!

5th place against the best competition out there always feels better than first place against no competition :-)

I say go for the gusto--you've had a stellar season thus far and have put in the dedicated training...so you might as well push yourself as hard as you can and see what happens. :)

Best of luck to you!!
