First Crit report

Cat 5. 30 min + 5 laps

Made some newbie mistakes at the beginning and was sitting near the back of the pack.

Then some guy couldn't handle a turn and almost took out me and another guy.

We panic braked to avoid crashing as the pack accelerated and we got gapped.

Got pulled along with another guy after 12 laps. (even though we were only about 1/2 lap behind the pack, WTF!?!)

They put me down as DFL

What ticks me off is that I figured at some point the pack would slow down to recover some and I intended to keep going same tempo as I had been to make up time. They slowed down the lap right after I got pulled.

Next time, they will pay

Vital Statistics:
Distance: 5.6 mi
Time: 14:38
Avg Speed: 22.98 mph
Avg HR :162

That is all

you didn't crash and didn't get dropped on the first lap. not a bad result for your 1st crit.
