It just struck me

I just had to pre-register for a Cat 3/4 event with a field limit of 100 because it might sell out.

The first time I raced McClane, the Cat 3/4 women's field was so small (6) that they combined us with the Cat 4/5 men. Wasn't that much different than your typical Saturday Morning ride. Hang on for dear life and hope you don't get caught in anyone's ego. Well, thats no way to grow the sport with women.

I think the following year we got our own race and there were maybe 12 of us. But at least the promotor gave us our own category.

And I take a little break and come back and have to preregister because 70 women are already signed up.

How cool is that?

i think i was reading some stats from the ncnca and i think it said that the women's 4s are the largest group of new licensees

not a surprising stat in light of mclane, but still pretty cool
