Last Tue KC Crit of the year, Final points

and so ends another season of Tuesday night Crits. Thanks go out to Chris and Kerry Hess(hope I spelled it right) for organizing the event. Large groups of riders showed up on a weekly basis keeping the races hard and fast, just what a training crit needs to be. It's was good to see some new faces and even some of the old guard challenging for those points paying positions.

Tonight's race still had a good turnout for the last training crit of the year. Bill did his traditional attack on the neutral lap and it took a good 20 minutes to pull his group back. After that there were attacks that never really seemed to go anywhere until 5 to go when Phil G. attacked hard with a teammate. It was beginning to look like they were going to make it to the finish until Joe and Adam from Mercy/Source E took some hard pulls to bring them back. In the end it was a field sprint where I ended up 6th. Nearly scored some points but it was not to be.

Next up, a 10k TT on Thursday to open up the legs and then Gateway Cup opens up on Friday night.

  1. Shadd Smith
