    My first crit

    I came in behind a girl on a fixie! But her kit matched her bike, so she may have been pro. I was doing well at the half way point, but she had a better strategy, I guess.

    This being my first race, and not knowing what to expect, I rode my back up bike. Next time I'm taking the Cervelo!
