After 12 years off the bike, and almost 1 year back riding again, I tried a Cat 4 crit on Sunday. I didn't have any problem with the pace, and it's almost a circle so no real corners. Though, there is a hill each lap just before the finish. I was spinning it fairly comfortably each lap. At the finish, I was about 10th at the base of the hill, and 40th at the top !!
Guess I got some work to do, eh ?!?!
