"animal"?

He's effectively racing a Cat below what he should be and cleaning up. That makes him a sandbagger, not an animal.

Fair enough. I kind of agree with you. I would much rather be racing French Federation races but i've ended up in a bit of a strange situation which doesn't really make it worth while:

-At the beginning of the year i thought i would be leaving France in April so i decided to stay with my current club (which only does UFOLEP races) where i get to ride with my mates.

-Now things have changed a bit and it's been confirmed that i've leaving in July except the good UFOLEP races are in June while the good FFC races are in July and August

- Once i do one FFC race i can't do anymore UFOLEP races

- The early season UFOLEP races are a lot more local than those coming up. There are a couple of stage races in June where i'll be very happy to be top 5.

Just to even things up a bit, Beaten in an uphill sprint...

Here there are some photos of the hardest race of my life, not because of the profile, just because of the weather, snowing and 0ºC. We only finished 41 of 130 riders, some of them had to retire and finished in hospital with hypothermia. At least, I was second in my category:

Yes. The second pic is epic. Riders look somewhat underdressed, though.

Regional Championships. Managed to get all three riders from my team into the 11-man break. One of them got dropped, was caught by the peloton, attacked again, bridged to the break, went straight past and was only beaten into second place on the line. Enjoyed my day doing some work on the front and came in 7th or so.

Now upgraded my category. Lots more racing to come, lots more legs trashing and track shreding!
