Race starting- Report

Thanks for all your help guys. I started out with my left foot because that is what I am used to. I didn't stumble for fall over. It was a super fun race. It was a 20min crit+ 1lap on a 3/4 mile course. I was only competing against 8 other people in the beginer class. One guy went down mid way through the race, he hit a dip in the road and shattered his carbon fork . He was fine though in the end. I got 4th or 5th, I never really found out what place I got(who cares). The guy that got first though should have been in the intermediate race though. I learned a lot from this race, I need to work on my cornering and hill climbing. I could feel myself fading everytime I went up the hill. Well, I am going out to practice, have a good one.

Awesome! missed it myself, as I'm more of a casual rider. To lazy to even spectate it.
But at least you had a great time, that's what counts.

There is going to be another crit in June at the redwood acres fairgrounds. The race is going to be on the auto race track. It sounds super fun, you should do it. I can't though, stupid summer school.
