I did the local crit yesterday around the Maverik (nee E) Center. There was a bunch of crashes in the early races and at the start of ours, and with the way things have been I basically told myself I was there with two goals.
a) get some speed back
2) stay safe
Mission accomplished, but I should probably be more confident in myself as I wasn’t nearly as bad as I anticipated being. I think I can mostly always fake it in a flat crit. I ended up 8th-ish, which is better than it sounds as the field was tiny, but if I had my head on right, I would’ve been a lot better as I watched the break ride away with 3 laps to go.
Anyway, super amped for the rest of the season. Confident the form-o-meter will be aiming up from here.
