First Road Criterium

May 11, 2019 - Might have to do this again...


I started the race watching the insanely fast dudes fly away as my foot slipped out of my pedal over and over. After spending 8 minutes sprinting, I caught up to people and drafted for a rest. Closed the gap! Crit racing is super intense but incredibly fun. My winter training paid off big time and I stayed in it, and also set a PR. Cornering at that speed was scary but when I eventually trusted my bike, I was able to properly throw it around with weight on the outside pedal. I rode wheels and picked off five people. Better than I expected for my first crit.
