Pro is for experienced fast people

As Rhys said, a lot of people are sandbagging. However, there is more to it.

In amateur races there is usually a bigger turnout being 2x 3x 4x as many riders qualifying than how many pros it is. Since there may be 30 pro riders signed up (not even run a lap) and 40 spots, you won't have to tryhard to get in. A 1 minute off pace laptime will do just fine while the amateurs have to try really hard just to get in. But that being said, a lot of people are trying to stay in lower classrs just to get good results, instead of manning up.

I think there's a huge difference in Amateur and Pro racers. The difference between in speed between a good amateur and mid-pack Pro isn't a big difference, however there's typically, in most situations, a better ability of skill that pro riders have that allows for cleaner, more consistent racing. I'm sure there's ton of people who are going to try and talk shit on me because of some of the decisions I've made, but hey, as a whole the racing in Pros is a lot better because both riders can usually go at a quicker pace while maintaining your line. The pro class, specifically at the top, is so addicting because for the most part everyone holds their line and can battle hard without crashing each other, that isn't to say though that sometimes you make mistakes, after all most of us have setups that are a bit squirly at times.



and this battle for example. You rarely get these sort of battles in Amateur racing.
