Palakta crit race report

I raced.

There was a crash within five minutes.

I got shelled about fifteen minutes after the crash.

One of my teammates puked after. He did well, but no money, but he got the glory of knowing he threw it all down on the line.

I need to learn how to move up on the field.

That is all.

As they say, "tomorrow is another day", so today must be that day. Have a good RR.

I had an excellent road race. Cramped pretty hard about 10 minutes after, but hey that's what you get for doing a race at 2PM in Florida in August and running out of fluids 1 mile from the finish.

Cheers!
