You can win/ride anything. But, that doesn't make it optimum for the situation.

Crit racers, typically, wouldn't ride such a heavy wheel. Ideally, they'd be buying the lightest and stiffest thing they can find.

While I own a 606 set, have ~2000 miles on them, and really like them, I'd never recommend them to a crit racer. One can really feel the rotational weight.
