Another-What to expect at my first crit.
Here's a quick bio-
Last year I raced Mountain XC NORBA and Boulder Short Track Series C Flight. I decided to get a road bike in order to train for having to move up in class for mountain. In any case, left my old team, joined a new one, and now I'm about to race my first road race. Still going to do the Mountain thing, but being a roadie has been fun so far. Provided it's a "practice race," but from what I can see from a previuous post "My 1st Crit" it looks like it is going to be on.
So what to expect? At least I have a little experiece with XC Short Track Suffer Fests. From what I can tell, a road crit looks like more of the same, just a lot more strategy and such going on. Overall, my goal is to finish. I am expecting to get dropped, but hope to do at least respectable, and NOT Crash!
Feel free to give whatever advice you might have. Looks like the weather should also be a factor this weekend.
Cheers and be safe!
