UVSC Crit.

Didn’t do the cross race.  Needed to get stuff done around the house and didn’t want to miss the crit as UVSC.  Double flatted on my way there and borrowed some “other” wheels- thanks to the kindness of strangers.  It was a decidedly low-key affair.  I guess going up against ‘cross and 24 hours of Moab in October combined with the fact that no one knew about it did not help boost enrollment.  They ran all the categories together on a very technical course, which would have been nuts in a full field.  Not a straight away more than 100 meters long.  I went hard from the start as it was a course where you are faster alone than in a group.  I won and got a $45 gift certificate to a nice Italian restaurant, which is better than some UCA races this year.  Even though it was not the deepest field of the year, I am glad I supported these guys (UVSC cycling club).  They are trying to get some more racing going on in the UC and I will support them in any way I can.

  1. Nice work! When will the (in)famous UT County Saturday group ride begin? After failing to drive down for a single ride this last fall/winter I am committed to doing better this year.

  2. I have heard rumors that guys are riding on Saturdays, but for any kind of decent numbers we would need a dry Saturday!! I don’t know when or if I’ll be there. The ride really gets going after cross ends/New Years.

  3. I’m glad to hear they gave you something. When I left, it looked like your prize was gonna be a pat on the back and a “good job.”
    You were awesome to watch. Next time, I’ll come support the cause with you.

  4. That is a great idea. I think every Monday morning from now on, I’ll just make up some race that I won. However, from here on out, they will be NRC or bigger.
