Sonofa*****.... 3 f'n crashes and 3 times I'm right behind them. The 2nd so close I could feel the body bounce against my rear wheel even so I dodged the wipe out.
3rd corner is a damn killer, all other turns are peachy. The 3rd corner is very tight, 3 guys next to each other can funnel through, maybe 4, so huge breaking by the pack in that corner.
I only raced for 20 min. after the third crash I just couldn't sprint back to the pack anymore and I had seen enough with the 3rd crash the dude surfing the pavement literally up side down on his helmet
so I called it a day and watched the finish sprint.
I pulled out with maybe about 30 left out of the 75 riders.
But I'll be back. Didn't get life insurance for nothing, ya know.
