Crit racing in Greenville. The Piedmont Orthopedics Cycling Team put on another great race tonight. Loads of fun and speed.
Crit racing is probably the sketchiest way to go fast- other than down hilling in a shopping cart. Crits are scary. Especially when people that don't know how do ride bikes go fast try to do them. But other than that they are pretty fun.
My goal for tonight was to finish with the lead group. I achieved that goal and pulled a top 10 finish placing 8th.
The course was a fun one. It had one hill that was the decider and the attacking point for most - it was also the finish line. The course is really cool, you only have to work really hard on that one hill and the rest is pretty much down hill or you can carry momentum through the parts that are flat or slightly up hill.
Fast laps and lots of fun.
p.s. sorry for the lame post.
