2 weeks before Yaletown Crit...

Anyone want to recomend a last minuet training schedule?

I have entered the Yaletown crit for July 1st. Between then and now I have no family so I have time to do the finishing touches on training. It is a flat crit with one short steep hill. My training to date has been sprint work and hill climbing and a series of training crits. I have 2 more training crits to go before the race. One crit has a big hill and last year I got dropped in cat 5 on that crit and this year I'm finishing in the top half of the pack in cat 4 on that hilly training crit and got 3rd in Cs on the flat trainnig crit. Should I focus on speed only or carry on with a combo of hill climbs and sprint intervals? Ideas?

I'd go out and try a couple laps in the rain just to get a feel for the bricks.

Oh right, ytown. In the old days Ytown was just a bunch of abandoned warehouses and parking lots where tricks took their hookers at night, now its jillion dollar highrise condos, ytown brewery and criteriums. Progress.
