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.
