Best crit for me yet. I didn't go out too hard...hung with the pack until about 2 minutes left when the group pass a lapped rider into a corner and I chose the wrong side (outside) of him....he freaked as the group passed fast on the inside and he dove to the outside curb forcing me to completely stop....lost the group and couldn't catch up. However it is the first time I wasn't lapped or even close to being lapped...i'm getting better!
On another note..maybe a rant...they had a cornering clinic tonight taught by a USA cycling coach...I think it should be mandatory for the C racers to complete one of these clinics before racing. Way too many sketchy people who really shouldn't be out there...the guy that freaked was one who was here for his first crit of the season and he didn't pay the $5 for the clinic!
