Memorial Day Crit, Morgan Hill

posted in: Race report | 0

Signed up for the 45+ 1,2,3 race.   This was my first real crit this year so I was a bit apprehensive about hanging in.   But the pace was fast and smooth pretty much the whole race so it was relatively easy in that there little slowing and accelerating, I think we only bunched [...]

Memorial day crit E4- Chris G

posted in: Race report | 2

This course reminded me of a baseball diamond. Imagine the out field arc, this was the longest stretch of road leading onto start/finish straight with plenty of room through the turn. Only minor flaw was cobble stone section 20? feet from apex on outside. Start/finish straight for E4 race was calm today but later race [...]

I arrived early and was able to join fellow teammates on their warm up laps before e5 race. The course layout was pretty cool going clockwise from start line into the 1st and tightest corner.
