I ride for a local team that has only been around a couple years. It has developed from a small group of Cat5 riders to a large, very strong group of 3's and 4's. Last year we were in great shape, and are even better this year, but we have struggled to win races that we should be winning.

I believe our main problem is a lack of effective strategy. We don't have an experienced coach (have tried to find one), so it's somewhat like the blind leading the blind. Some of the team members have some specific ideas of strategy which we've tried, mostly ineffectively. I would like to explore some new strategies and am wondering if there are any books, websites, etc. out there that will help us out. Some of the strategies we use are from watching other races but I don't think that is appropriate. What works for Lance won't necessarily help in a CAT-4 race.

Any info you have would be appreciated!
