Race Report, June 23rd, Lenoir Crit

Not quite botto-esque, but shorter than my usual reports:

Cat 3 race, Lenoir NC. Started off fast and stayed that way for most of the race. Nice hill on the back half of the course that hurt people. Ended up second across the line. The only excitement to speak of was a guy who probably would have gotten second away from me losing traction going through the final turn and sliding across the course, losing some skin in the process. I had a great vantage point on it and then a clear run to the line. Unfortunately, there was one other rider who had gone clear of the group with two to go and was too far away for me to catch.

That should give me enough points to cat up, although I think I've decided to stay in the 3s until French Broad in July, then upgrade after that.

One race, two reports. Gotta love it.

At least it's two different categories. Although it would've been more interesting if it wasn't.

Yeah, you've had quite a run!!

My collarbone isn't bad. My head is still full of cobwebs, though. Concussions suck.

Yup. Sounds like you had a good day too, though.
