Tuesday Crit, No Rain!

Yes, the Tuesday crit went off tonight with the threat of rain that never materialized. I did everything in my power to keep the rain away, rode the rain bike, wore old clothes, brought my raincoat. I guess it worked, we got a few sprinkles but that was about it.

Tonight's winner Shadd, Sporting his Source Endurance kit. Maybe I'll have one for next week's race but more on that in another post.

Shadd picked up the win tonight in what was a pretty weird race. Small group due to the weather but still 25-30 guys. Once the race got started it seemed like nobody really wanted to get things going. At some points during the race the corners were a little wet so that slowed things down a bit as well. But it didn't take long for some of the guys to start attacking and Phil G. put in a huge 2 lap effort that strung out the field. Near the end Phil attacked and Shadd let him go, David H. rolled off the front and everybody let him go, so I attacked to try and get across to the two of them solo. Made it up to David but was gassed and had to sit on as we made it up to Phil.
Not long after that Shadd bridged up with Larry S. and that made 5 in the break. I was still pretty gassed but hung on until the last lap and ended up 4th. Not too bad for the first ride after last weekends crash fest.
