Good races... the chewd up center of the track.. didn't help your position location...
Low and inside.. OR up and outside were the smoothest through the turns... must have felt like riding on cooblesetone at the 3/4 speed.

I'm thinking a circle track crit probably isn't the ideal showcase for your abilities...

When is the first RR or technical crit?

I'll road race on the 15th in PA. I cannot wait. I'll be bringing so much frustration to the line.

Elevation profile ain't terribly steep - but it'll do for at least a little bit of selection.

Damn, Tom! NP of 348 is 128% of my FTP!

I might as well hang it up now and go back to rec riding.
