I will be doing my first criterium on Sunday. Actually, it is also my first road bicycle race. There is a clinic directly before the race, so that should help with some basics, but does anyone have any advice. I know I will probably get dropped as I have only done a few days of sprint workouts and apparently that is what most of a criterium is, but does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for Sunday? Thanks.
Also, I will be looking a tad ridiculous because I haven't gone clipless yet, so I will be using clips and sneakers, but I guess that's just life.
