Openers today, I was careful! Training crit tomorrow. Ex said "keep your nose out of the wind, you haven't been training for this". Absolutely. I'm riding with two teammates in a combined Juniors/Beginner Cat 4/Experienced Cat 4 field, which sounds pretty volatile to me. The game plan is to stay close to the front, out of the way of the squirrels, and hope no one takes me out. I'm looking forward to racing, but I have absolutely no expectations. I am looking forward as well to racing with teammates! That will be a first.
