Junior Crit. Tips
I decided to go down to the velodrome yesterday to check it out, and it turns out they were having a junior session goin' on, so I decided to join in on the fun. They were running a few miniraces and I ended winning all of them (don't know how to word this in a humble way
) and after the sessions ended some of the mentors told me to try out a 30 mile, 15-lap practice crit, taking place tomorrow.
I wanted to know some tips for:
1) Where should I position myself in the pack while the pace is slower? Higher?
2) If I decide to break, when would usually be the most opportune moment?
3) Where should I be to set up the final sprint?
As always, all thoughts are appreciated and I'll be sure to give a race report!
