I'm doing my first crit on sunday and just wanted to see how you guys reflect on your first crit. I've read a bunch of CDR's blog entries, and I'm actually racing the event he helps to run.
I'm going to be rocking my 84 trek 760 steelie because my CAAD9 doesn't fit me right and I'm waiting on a new frame from the dealer. I might swap my wheels for the lighter wheelset for the race.
I just wanted to see what you guys learned that was indispensable to your crit experience. I just want to go and have fun and ride my heart out.
It's my first CAT 5 race but I've done two collegiate races so far. Got any tips for a crit noobie?
Thanks! I figure this will be a cool reflection thread for all you folk!
