Iowa City Crit...

Wondering about tactics here.

If a thunder storm doesn't put the race to bed, it's suppose to be very windy.

The race consists of a pretty short but rather steep hill. You go down it and up it (this profile shows a spike in the hill, that's not's smooth)

Cat 5...only 10 laps

I'm not sure how much of a factor wind will play because most of the route is surrounded by pretty tall buildings.

I'm kind of assuming that a race like this is going to thin the field out a bit, rather than one big pack. How do races like this tend to develop at the lower levels???
