Tour of St. Louis - Forest Park

I raced today.

First crit of the year. Forest Park cat 3 race, St. Louis. Flat course, wide open turns. Let’s just say my pack skills are lacking at this point. The pace was fast. I did too much work early in the race and paid later. I don’t fancy myself as a sprinter and bridged to what I thought would be the deciding break of the day. I was wrong.

Luckily I recovered in time and had just enough to squeeze out 7th. Finished in the money along with a teammate that finished 2nd.

Racing a bike is fun.

Good job on the 7th!

I had 3 teammates (Manchester Racing Club) in the 3 race. I raced the 4s. Pace was indeed fast. I pack finished.
