I'm a 45 W cat5 with just a few races this year. There's a state masters event-crit and road race this weekend as well as another event(road) else where. My question is do I stand a chance with the other more experienced masters or should I go do the cat w 4/5 road race with the youngsters-similar distances for the road race.

If your choice is Masters 45+ or 35+, without a subcategory, don't even think about doing it. Stick with the Sr 4/5. The "open" masters will eat you alive. They are about as fast as the 1's. Been there, suffered that humiliation.

If there is a Masters 35+ 4/5 race, then that's the one I'd do.
