Leonardtown Maryland Criterium

So who is racing in this?

The cat 3/4 field is filled up and there is no wait list. Can I still show up and be wait listed on the spot? If not I guess I will have to get destroyed in the 30+ race.

I'm out of town this weekend. Last year, this was the crit championship event and it was a tough race. Study the 1st turn and do your best to be near the front when you enter it on each lap.

You can probably just show up and register day of for the 3/4, there are always people who pre-reg then cant make it so spots open up. Leonardtown is so far from where the majority of MABRAs live, your odds of getting a spot are probably even better than normal. Alternatively, you could do the 30+, would be good experience. Leonardtown is a really good crit, I'm disappointed I cant make it, but it's my wife's birthday and she's not very enthusiastic about me racing that day ... particularly given how far the race is from where we live.

It's only a 3 turn crit, but turn 1 is well known as it's a 120 deg, a little off camber, bottom of a slight decline and turns into a slight uphill. There's also a utility pole on the left of the road that has seen some action. Although Turn 1 gets all the notoriety, but for some reason turn 2 doesnt fit my eye. Last year I fooked it up like 36 times in a row to the point that it cost me a real opportunity at the district crit championship.
