Anyone do this crit today? The Cat 4 race was a little crazy as we started with 60 and ended with 38 due to crashes; 4 in total and lots more close calls. They actually had to bring the race to a stop after 3 neutral laps to bring out an ambulance on the course. Hopefully, that guyís okay. I think all the others were alright although I saw one guy in a final lap crash go up over the hay bale and into a road sign post. Another guy clipped a barrier with his shoe, but stayed upright even though his foot was knocked back by his rear wheel.
I was okay besides one turn where I had to lean into a guy and literally push him back up, whereupon he looked over and thanked me. Then 2 laps later, I almost did the same in the same turn myself and had to hop the rear wheel to get back in line. I also had to back off some during the turns because I had a slow leaker that I didnít change out in the pits until the neutral laps. In retrospect, I should have changed it out much sooner.
My question has to do with snap. I have none even though I can hang with the sprinters in the windup etc. I am right on their wheels until the end, but then have nothing to jump with. Is this because Iím not doing enough intervals (I mostly do hill climbs instead)?
