Ended up being a pretty fun race but interesting b/c they let the lapped juniors stay in the race until the end. I was thinking they'd pull them a couple laps from the end. I felt good for most of the race so attacked and ended up trying 3 breakaways and none were successful. I only had one teammate with me on the lead lap and we ended up not being able to get anything going, but it was good to know that there was always a wheel to tuck in on when I needed it.
There was one crash when some dude came cooking into a corner and hit the brakes, but otherwise all were really alert and holding their lines. Unfortunately, I had nothing for the sprint b/c I had spent everything trying those breakaways and just held on to finish just outside of the top 10. I'd highly recommend Wompatuk to any New Englanders that are looking for a fast, fun crit.
With that, good luck tonight, rockets
